Okay, still trying get all of the little details ironed out before the M goes for paint. I have new grill screen material with clips from Steiner's to put on the inside of the grill. My question is did the tractors come from the factory with the screen painted red or were they the natural silver color of the screen? If they were painted red I will install new screen material after grill is prepped for paint and paint it all in one shot. If it should be left the silver color I will have to carefully install it after painting. Thanks

They were red. If you are going to paint it, be mindful of drips and blobs on it. they can form quickly on that screen. I left mine silver, and it looks sharp that way to me.

Here's the silver, just so you can compare.

All the new farmalls I saw in the 40's and the new 1950 M I drove for neigbhor had the galvanized wire mesh just as the front and back wheel rims were galvanized. When these tractors were redone, it was just easier to paint grill red and paint wheel rims silver. Buck

Both my Farmall M tractors (1939 and 1947) have red paint on the mesh inside the grille. The 1939 mesh may have been replaced, but if so it was before 1944. The 1947 is original and the paint is covers all the mesh and inside of the grille. However, this may have been a paint scheme for Australia.
