Straw yellow

Not that I am the Captain of the "Correct Police", but I sure hate to see a nice Massey Harris that the owner has spent lots of time and money on with wheels that look like MF, Cat or John Deere yellow.  I can't believe it is that hard to do your homework and get the correct formula for Straw Yellow.  My rant for the day.

RE:Straw yellow

Kurt, I couldn't agree with you more. Red is a little more forgiving, but the yellow sticks out like a sore thumb. Good post. See you in Baraboo

RE:Straw yellow

Kurt,

I too agree with you.  Over here we suffer from some appaling shades of grey on the old grey Fergusons and our "grey-gold" (gold belly) Ferguson 35s can be a sight for sore eyes with awful shades of the "gold".

I would go a step further and say why paint up any tractors that have a reasonable amount of original colour left in them?  Keep them as original as possible is my way of thinking and good originals are certainly commanding some premium prices.  Nothing easier than some T cut to clean them up then an oiling down will bring the old paint up a treat.  And remains of original decals are really priceless and can never be reproduced.

Even quite rusty ones come up a shiny treat with a few oilings down and get a shine to them.  It's so much easier, so much cheaper and they don't go off like the best of paint jobs inevitably do over time unless you have de-humidified storage = $$$$$$$$s!!!!!

But - I suppose it's everyone to their own taste ....................................

John
