About this title


A trusted writer and instructor on the restoration of tractors--from Ford and Farmall to John Deere--Tharran Gaines provides a complete, clearly detailed, step-by-step guide to painting your tractor for that perfectly authentic look. It’s the finishing touch and the first thing anyone will see; the paint job is an essential step in tractor restoration, and the techniques can be a bit unfamiliar, a bit daunting. This easy-to-follow how-to book takes the guesswork and anxiety out of the process and assures you of getting just the look you want for your vintage farm machine.


Beginning with metal cleaning, preparation, and bodywork repair, Gaines covers primer and paint types; matching vintage paint colors; and painting equipment and techniques. He concludes with decal and emblem placement and application and finishing techniques.

From the Back Cover:

Whether it’s a lovingly restored classic or a trusty workhorse still doing daily chores, nothing makes your favorite tractor look better than a great paint job. In How To Paint Your Tractor, longtime agricultural writer Tharran E. Gaines offers all the tips you’ll need to give any tractor—be it a Farmall, Ford, John Deere, or Allis-Chalmers—a new, authentic look. With more than 250 photos and step-by-step instructions, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the metal cleaning, surface preparation, and bodywork repair that need to be done before applying the first coats of primer and paint. Also inside is information on matching vintage paint colors and the latest in painting equipment, as well as decal and emblem placement and finishing techniques to make your labor of love stand out from the rest.
