...is my new friend!

Painted my old partially-rusting Woods Dixie Cutter with the oxide paint and man does that look good! Now the next question is do I paint it equipment yellow, or Ford red.....

But what a difference a little paint makes!!

Here is one of 5:

OK, this is after the primer and painting is done. Hand painted it, did not treat anything, sand blast etc.... I have a blade connected to my tractor that is brand new (and needs some help already in the paint dept.), but the cutter looks better in this photo....

Here is #2 of 5:

Have a bit of work to do on this, but overall I could not be happier with the tractor once I get all of the bugs out of it (so to speak).... You can see the wires hanging just under the hood, that is one of my headlight wires.....

Here is #4 of 5:

Already bought the paint, going to have one of my daughters handpaint the "Ford" in red..... I like the contrast when that is on the tractor and it is what its suppsed to be....

And the last one:



Please note the other headlight wire (on the right hand side of the tractor), it was just cut as were the wires for the rear lights.....

I like my RED Dixie cutter.
It matches the tractor better!!

I must admit I SERIOUSLY contemplated leaving the cutter with just the red oxide on it, or painting it red, but my wife thought it would look better with the OEM on it....

The boss won out, but I like it too.... I also like the red..... It just all looked so much better than the rust that was going on.

Looks almost too nice to take out in the brush and get all scratched up. Nice tractor too. I guessing an late '49 or early 1950.
