Hey guys,
As some of you know I have been working hard restoring my Beaver, over the winter I did a lot of primer work and prep for paint I sanded and worked for many hours getting it ready for paint. I have started work on the chassis and all of the Blue parts, and the mostly all the white parts are ready for a coat of paint.

What I have done so far.
-Painted front and rear wheels
-Checked gears and clutch (they were fine and I didnt replace)
-Sanded down mostly all the white parts and primed them removed all dents and they are primed and ready for paint.
-Blue parts are all done and are slowly being put back on.
-Replaced fan belt and all fluids.
-I have ordered new Satoh Beaver hood decals of Ebay.

Thanks for looking!
Nick

Before Paint


Only Picture I have of it after paint, the inside of the front wheels have to be repainted, and I am going to get the paint of the covers and light wires.


More Pictures to come later, I took this at 10:00 lastnight.

Beaverboy,
Were did you get the paint for your beaver. I am putting together a random axle dump trailer and I want to paint it the same color as my buck.

This is I'm assuming the buck and beaver are both the same color. I have a buck and a beaver but they are faded so I can't really tale.

I got the paint from my local home improvement store (home depot lowes). It wasnt a direct match but really close to it. Its rustolem sail blue

I loved my MT372, but, lost it to a stuck clutch.

Keep that beautiful machine's clutch pedal blocked down when not in use!!

I have the pin for it, but after 35 years of not blocking it down or using the pin it never got stuck? I will start doing that though just for the well being! Better being safe then sorry!
