The hardener for the topcoat is OMNI MH202 HG. The topcoat is an MAE acrylic enamel from Omni. The OEM code is FLEET & Brand Code 71282. It's called Flambeau Red. The ratio was 4 paint to 1 MR Reducer(thinner) to 1 Hardener(MH202). The Primer is OMNI MP181 1K Primer Surfacer.
The rims were OMNI Diamond Silvermetalic. OEM code L97A,Z4-Brand Code 2803. All the mixing instructions were pretty clear on the paperwork. Ron got the paint at Harry's Auto Supply.
I can get more info from Ron if you would like more details.

Me too! We better not get together, some beer would be gone. Like most kids I was ADD and would spend a half our on each fender, a half hour in the seat, a half hour standing up and repeat it for 12-14 hrs a day. For a while I'd take a rifle with me and try to shoot coyotes. They would lay on the hillside sunning themselves 100 yds away. If you stopped they would run so I'd shoot from the tractor while moving. Never hit one. Good memories.
Thanks

It is. WWI. Came with the tractor when Dad bought it in 67. The guy who owned it was 84 when he sold it. The box was pretty dryrotted and I refinished it 2 months ago. Lot's of coats to seal it up. I looked WWI ammo boxes up on the internet and bought harness leather and replaced the handle. Used the tools and rivits from Grandpa's leather working tools we found in the tool shed.

I darn near replaced it. The ammo box finished up nice enough that I think I'll leave it for now. It's probably been on there 50 yrs. Case tool boxes are hard to find. I'm thinking I should buy one just in case. Do you know what it might go for?
Thanks

It's a WWI oak ammo box for feeding machine guns. It was on there when Dad bought in 1967. It finished up ok, so I'll leave it for now. There was 2 things we looked for when we found the tractor after being gone for 19 yrs. The air intake and the ammo box! Don't have the heart to replace it right now. The air intake was like that too in 67. Someone had too much time on their hands. The fellow we got it from retired from farming & bought the LA for custom field work in 49 new. He sold to us when he was 84.
Thanks for the compliments.
Steve
