53 2 Ton
Preservation Paint

Decided we needed to throw a coat of "preservation paint" on the 2 Ton as some of the rusty spots were not looking too good and I won't be taking the time to do any of the body work it really needs done anytime soon. When we started the plan was to just scuff up the existing paint, do some body work that had to be done, and shoot it. Once we got started the old paint (could have been house paint brushed on) started coming off in big chunks, and soon we were taking several sections down to bare metal. Total cost ended up coming out to just over $100 and 2 days of work. About $80 in primer and thinner and $22 for Valspar Massey-Ferguson red paint from tractor suppy. Also while stripping the paint off the doors we found lettering from a previous owner.
