hey guys, i started a restoration of a john deere 214 tractor. it wasnt in bad shape to begin with, but i want it perfect. when you guys restor them, do you take it all the way down to bare frame and rear end? i heard it is pretty complicated to remove the speed variator. ive ran into a few bumps already with my rear end and such. i also need to get the drive belt off the motor to remove the engine. how do i do this? when you guys paint do you use rattle cans or buy paint and use a gun? i was leaning more to buying the paint and spraying it out of a gun, then clear coat. any tips on making the restoration turn out good is welcome!!!
