    Nice job, what brand and type of paint did you use, looks good. Have you seen the El Toro version that was shipped to South America, with the floater tire's.

    Thanks guys for kind words. We are in southeastern ohio. Its pretty rough ground down here. Me and my wife are planning on moving up to her dads farm in near future where its better ground to farm on. And my goal is to build new shop and do Ag repair and restoration with some fabrication work too. Plus farm.

    We just used valspar enamel paint from TSC. I prefer automtive paint instead. The enamel takes to long to harden. Yes have seen the El toro. The auction we went to get this oliver had a el toro with cab, along with bout 150 more tractors. The clover white for the wheels. We mixed green and white till we got a lil green tint when the light hits it right.
