Canvas it will be!:)

Well i picked up the wheels from the blaster($5-each),then went to get some paint.I couldn't find the canvas white anywhere!!!I went home and looked through my supply's and found 1 can of Valspar primer and 1 of gloss white(both tractor paint)that i bought for a project last year.After letting them bake in the sun for a while,i shook them up and went to town.Here's a pic of the sandblasted wheels,and one after being sprayed.

approximately how many rattle cans does it take to do the rims? I'm going to do my front and rear rims soon. Thanks in advance.
All depends on the brand of paint.It took a full can of the Valspar tractor paint from TSC to do the fronts.The rears will take a bit more,not looking forward to it!

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
