Attachment Paint Color - Universal Mount

Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:31 pm

I've been reviewing a lot of web photos and forum posts for proper painting of implements. I've seen the Universal Mount IH Red. I've also seen it IH Blue. Since ALL the paint is totally gone on mine, I have no clue what is was originally. There is the obvious answer = "it's your paint it however you like" - My preference is to replicate it as close to original as possible.

So will the real color for the Universal Mount - Please Stand-UP? :big smile:

A few of the very early ones were blue and a few of the late ones were white. Most, including 1948, were red.
