I just dropped my 12" cat 0 off at the sand blaster.......should it get painted Brinly white/black or IH red/black (it will get pulled with my red 82 series)?????

Let's hear your opinions.....

So far I have one vote for red, one white, and one Gold Demo......

Steve B -

Since I saw your question on both threads, I'll post my answer both places, too. (Does that make it my $.04?)

I think the white/black would look sharp. There's already a lot of red on the tractor and I think the white would balance out the white wheels and decal stripes. Of course, I've been wrong a time or two before...

Kraig,

A little "old" for the vintage tractor that will be pulling it.....IH stopped using the blue in the mid-60's and went to black.

I suppose I could go the Gold Demo route.......maybe the 1572 needs gold demo paint as well???????

Steve, that was in response to Bill's post about IH implement blue.

I had already voted Brinly white/black and I'm sticking with that vote.

Assembled plow this afternoon, after I notched and sharpened the rolling cutter and painted the last few black parts this morning.

Steve,
Nice set up. Hey I just noticed the chains on the hitch. What are they for?

To keep it stable? Do you need them?

Shultzie, those would be "anti-sway chains", aka "stay chains". Helps keep things from flopping around.
