Lug nuts, that is. Painted silver. Probably a waste of time but they will look nice for a little while. I touch up the impact socket damage with a tiny paint brush after I put them on.



Started painting the chassis and various red parts like foot boards and hitch parts, and mounting them back in place. Once all the red parts are back on, I'll go over it to sand out any runs or spot paint missed areas, then after a week to be sure it is dry the entire tractor will get another coat of paint with hardener in it to improve the shine.



Since my shop heats with wood, and I let the fire go out during the week, big paint work kind of depends on the weather. If it gets below zero I can't get it warm enough to paint. If it gets into the 20's I can get air temp up to 80 but the metal stays cold, so I fire the stove up on Friday and keep it loaded so I can have everything warmed up enough to paint Saturday night. Then load it up before I go to bed and first thing Sunday, by that afternoon it should be safe to let it cool off again.

I noticed the wear in the 3 point hardware. No wonder everything was so loose.



Probably just replace them if they are cheap. Haven't looked them up yet. Spent another $100 on misc paint stuff this week and haven't totaled up the rest. Kinda sorta on budget yet I think. You guys are easy, everyone else that stops by the shop to check on the project cleans out the beer fridge before they leave. But it wouldn't be fair to charge the project for that "overhead".

Looking at your paint table that looks like an early 8N right side footboard with the heat shield. Is it? I have one on the shelf of a basket case tractor in my garage.

Yes it has the heat shield. Probably asbestos. I've seen other right side foot boards without, I just figured they were after market copies. But did Ford drop that heat shield in later N's?

You got to love that weekend wood heat...
I have to do the same thing here, but i have a small electric heater set at 45*F to keep things thawed. But I build a fire every night just to keep the power bill down. Then on friday the stove gets cleaned and stoked all weekend long..

It looks good, nice to see progress.. keep it up

Yes, My '48 and '49 have asbestos but not my '51. Don't know the actual serial number when it was dropped.

Nice Job Doug. I enjoy your weekly updates. I see that gas container in the background with the goofy spout. I have one like that but got rid of the spout and put on an after market one that actually lets gas pour out, Shock!
