Steve, did you pre-treat the aluminum with a chromium based product (chromiun chromate or chromium phosphate) before priming and painting? I've found that aluminum is just never cooperative without some sort of metal treatment first. We also had success with zinc chromate and zinc phosphate pre-treatments at my dads shops. Just wondering.................
I found a father and son team that have a small mill and when I drove into their yard I saw a good sized (top of hood was approx. 6') John Deere parked off to the side and I immediately thought of you. The dad still cuts and bales hay with it they told me and there were fresh bales of hay in the field right behind the mill to prove it.
Very nice looking tractors BTW!

My diet is working good. I'm down to needing just one chair now.
