Made my 560 pulling tractor purdy


Recommended Posts

I did pretty good with the 560 the 1st and only year I pulled, 2019. By the time I learned alot and figured out alotnof the problems all the tractor pulls got canceled.  Well no excuse this summer I had all of 2020 to work on it. I painted it myself. Not the best job but enough to get the missis excited.  I want to get some ih branding iron decals for the hood also20190727_144304.thumb.jpg.73572d96b5118854fb79eaa6ebe9becf.jpg20210612_183831.thumb.jpg.6d895f10d891639372ddd28ed19676fe.jpg20210612_183842.thumb.jpg.4a1fc440f2c4ac0aed96575c90bd51e0.jpg20210612_194303.thumb.jpg.f06b1f3091b1d8a9b4dfbc64d47fd4a3.jpg20210613_142913.thumb.jpg.1a9ab5d7f690b2523eb9104bc7e5e3fa.jpg20210613_113008.thumb.jpg.158691c75c8a8eb72efd473bfbda156b.jpg20210613_145216.thumb.jpg.14ff4925a84e4a7de1ca880be896b6ea.jpg20210613_145223.thumb.jpg.4000fa678099f79e7e88b6720c28a720.jpg20210613_184307.thumb.jpg.ce7acf3a64937553e97ecbbf5da83cb8.jpg20210613_184334.thumb.jpg.c2c72bc71e4d813d3e63b7f50dc8f2d5.jpg20210614_192549.thumb.jpg.5162037277ceb4a8c3cf5acf01d31679.jpg20210616_191343.thumb.jpg.df6ef5110d055735740cf1b5da88879e.jpg20210616_191402.thumb.jpg.f6d02bd0d5ab6452c700eea242fb1cf1.jpg20210616_191348.thumb.jpg.3dfa83d698a8397c96fd84bd3f88893a.jpg20210616_205840.thumb.jpg.522c9aecf80897f33eafbe68ffc77315.jpg

Looks good Rusty. I notice you still took your time with some attention to detail. I like it when guys mask off things, and remove hoses etc, that dont need to be painted. You can be the worst painter in the world but as long as you give a rat's a$$ you can make it look good in my opinion. Much better than when guys blast everything red and overspray everything else. Drives me crazy. Good job

I`ve painted a few myself but not show quality.

It`s a LOT of tedious work.

And the guys who critiqued mine never painted a tractor.

Looks great Rusty!

I like the boy`s weight box.

So, you say, all I need to do to get my wife excited is paint a tractor?

Who`d of thought!

Ether that or kill a large animal in front of her with your bare hands, 9 months before my first son was born my wife seen me tackle a buck and I slit its throat. 100 percent true story.

We always said AC/DC gained you 15hp in the mud so maybe you need to crank that radio up ?

The radio is empty and I use it as a glove compartment , and  I know I'm going to get alot of flack for this but I am not an ac DC fan.

No but the extra 8lbs of paint does put him over into the next weight class so he has to run one less set of wheel weights.
