  • Need help finding somethings
  • I need to find a little bit of touch up paint for our Naa, I need the slightly tan on the hood and fenders, local ford dealer doesn't have it. I had a whole gallon of it to paint every thing, a friend volunteered to spray every thing for me.I ask him to save me a small amount but he forgot. That was over a year ago and as you all know when things lay around in a shop and during installation things happen. Beth is going to free hand the red raised ford script on the hood and fenders,she does really nice work. I would also like to find decals for our wagner front end loader. This whole project is coming together very nicely, I'm only waiting for a couple of hydraulic parts to show up and I'm done!!! Thanks in advance and God Bless,Beth and Allen.

  • Paint is no problem to locate. I buy my TISCO stuff at a few local tractor yards or the CNH IRONGARED stuff at my local CNH dealer OR Just8Ns sells the TISCO stuff as well. Repop ID Tags can be found at George Bradish in Latrobe, PA -see LINK. Call George & Brenda and talk. If they don't have your tag George might make one if you send him the original.

    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.

  • Re :Back to Tim Daley, Mich
  • I don't need the spray, I need a small bottle of touch up with the little brush in it. The whole tractor is already completely repainted, but the sheet metal got a couple of chips in the paint while it was in my shop for a year during my health issues and another chip when the f.e.l. was being mounted,it got away from us for a second and bracket for hyd. line touched right dog leg. When my friend painted the sheet metal I think he used a little too much hardner, it looks great but I think the paint is a little too brittle. At least paint job was free. As for the decals I don't have an original to go by, only a picture in the manual. Thanks, God Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • Both my 120 and 130 wagner loaders just had tags on them. Maybe the decals fell off years ago. I think the decal will be hard to find. You could probably have it custom done but the cost would way too much.

  • Re: Thanks Kirk Nj
  • I was hoping someone would know of a company that does repops of old decals that would do them. Every company I found does every thing but Wagner. But I actually need the touch up paint more than the decals. Thanks, God Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • Repop decals
  • There are a lot of home hobbyists doing custom decals and consequently plenty of DIY tutorials available through video hosting sites like YouTube.

    What is basically involved is using photo editing program like Photoshop, scanning and importing from equipment manual whatever decal you have pictured you're wanting to reproduce, then printing decal.

    You're going to need purchase decal paper specific for type of printer you're using, & decal paper that's suitable for your particular decal (transparent, white, tinted, etc).

    Print out your decal, cut it out, apply decal, then cover with a couple of light coats of clear to preserve decal.

    Search will be your friend in finding tutorials, but that's "custom decals" in a nutshell.

    If you can't find somebody in a group (like a FB group, where members email images they want decals made from) that will custom make decals for you, it's possible to DIY, if you're willing to learn and apply new skills.
