7116h restore paint?

Recommended Posts

hurleyii

Ok so I have found the Simplicity paint for the Orange and I've confirmed the white is a perfect match to Wimbledon white . 

I've also have several 900 series Allis tractors and I figured I'd do at least two tractors at once one of each. 

The question at hand is do they use the same paint?  I also found Persion Orange number two listed on an Allis sight for 1960-1990. Is that just for the big tractors.

Also how much paint in Orange would it take to do a simplicity and how much would an Allis take  in you guys experience? Simplicity paint is 60.00 a quart as opposed to a gallon of implement paint from Dupount, lets say 70 plus hardner or the hardware store paint that's 30.00. 

Any good or bad experiences with paints would be great to hear to such as gas melting the paint. 

Thanks for all the help guys and yes I know I have to renew my membership asap! Lol

I don't want to be that annoying guy...but that looks like a pretty clean tractor already. You could alway buff it and rattle can the wheels. I would be willing to bet you would have a VERY clean looking tractor if you went that route. They are only original once.

The hood has to be redone and the seat pan, both are cracked

That looks like about an 1983 tractor.  By then the Simplicity and AC were using the same orange (or so close you can't tell the difference).   I have found that the closest hardware store paint is Kubota Orange #2.  All the AC Ag colors that the hardware stores sell are not close, but once the whole tractor is done, who can tell. 

Here is my color template of some of the common hardware/farm store paints.   The left is closest to the 900 series AC and the right is the closest to the older Simplicity Deep Orange.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
