  • Paint colors on a Ford 600
  • My Quartine project- Painting my Ford 600. Not sure of different item colors/ Need picture or text. Bought Ford dealer old can of "authentic Ford Red", rust restore, Primer, paint thinner, paint sprayer.
    Believe black items are starter and seat,(spring red) doing brush application now in shop, warm up-paint outside with sprayer.
    . Have Ferguson jack and floor jack for front.
    Suggestions accepted

  • The general rule of thumb for Ford Tractors is: cast iron = M-2822, Vermillion (red) enamel, and sheet metal = Ford Medium Grey, M-13243, and Black is Ford M-2824 , a semi-gloss enamel. Seat and spring, radiator, rad cap, steering wheel spokes, are black. Radiator shroud and fan blades are red. Starter and generator were red but black is OK too.
    The TISCO brands come real close to the OEM. Use the IHC TP-110 for red; it comes closest to OEM Vermillion. TISCO sells other Ford Reds that are supposedly correct for the Hundred Series with more orange in them but I donít care for them personally. Check with JUST8Ns for their inventory if you canít find locally. CNH sells the Iron Gard brand and will be OK too. You can get it in Red, Med Grey, and Black. There are others too, Iím just saying what has worked best for me. Your tractor, paint it any colour you like.
    For hat rims and wheel nuts I use the Case/IH Silver Argent wheel paint. For throttle and plate, gas tank, and acorn nut and washer I use Eastwood Silver Cad.

  • Thank you. Thank you.
    You answer was right on plans and need. I have basically bought what you recommend, except the local CWH had old gallon of New Holland Ford Red and gray from 2N project, I bought primer from Ace Hwd. I bought some TSC spray cans of red. I disassemble , scape, sand, apply rust restore, brush primer and red (around under battery)all inside overhead propane heater (door open). On Fergy 1939 family jack.
    Have bought airless sprayer and plan on moving it outside now as weather permits and spray. Small parts on clothline.
    Plan on a complete rewire using operators manual as guide, except small alternator with machined V- pully Cell phone picture of wire hookup).
    Fitted DC case wheel weights to rims (same angle) Lights are 12 volt from scrapped JD-45 combine.
    Oil line is in back of HYD pump and inaccessible. Tractor all ready has a splice in line. new water temp unscrews.
    Should heat shield between muffler and gas tank special paint (heat resistant?

  • Starter is same color as tractor chassis, so for your 600 should be red. You see alot of black ones because starter rebuilds generally come back painted black, but not correct for Ford tractors.

  • Years ago I had an 8N in the shop and removed its fuel tank from the hood. On top of the tank was a sheet of the original "gray" paint that had peeled off the underside of the hood. Anyway, the hue and shade perfectly match Rustoleum Fossil. Fossil is a satin finish paint however, so if a showroom better than original shine is desired then clear gloss would need to top coat it.
