I see you removed the major sheet metal parts to prime and paint but how did you prepare and paint the frame and other sub components? Did you disassemble and blast everything or did you degrease and paint by hand or some other method? I just bought a PK 2418 with loader and after I get it running, I'd like to start painting it. I did a frame off full restoration of a Sears Suburban using Rustoleum paint and I was not happy with the paint and it turned out to be way too much work for the end result in my opinion, I think this 2418 will be another story though I'm not sure I want to disassemble the entire thing for painting. Any thoughts or opinions on a halfway decent way to prep and paint an old machine without fully disassembling would be great. That said, nothing upsets me more than when I see people selling tractors on Craigslist that they picked up cheap and spray painted the wheels AND tires in hopes for a few extra bucks.....I'd pay less for it at that point.
