Well done Michell :smile:
I think it would look very nice if painted in the original Industrial Yellow , true to its purpose and history and unlike most of the others in its class .

Hallo Hiawatha. Yes the yellow color is the original color to this industri model mf 65. And for me its wery difficould to do the decision about color . I have seen mf 65 from DENMARK and UK in Red and I Really like the red and grey with crome to the front. But I have allso looked industri model on you tube from uk from a tractor show and it allso looked Nice 😊😊😊 its so much difficould to me 😭😭
But later on I Will bye the full packige off crome to my 65 . There will be crome in the middle from down and all the way to the top off bonnet. And allso the MF Bird in to the top/front I Will put on to the bonnet .

Soon I am finich the hole rear . All is New to the back. New breakes New seal's New bearings all clean and funktion as New now . ....next is hudralick and clutch...then its time for sandblasting and paint...so Soon I can do What I have looked forward to for a long time ..sandblasting finally hahaha πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ‘

What color will you do ?

I think that I would paint it yellow, too, keeping to its origins. Many of the photos on the internet are of old, worn, faded yellow paint, but with a bright gloss finish and added chrome work it would look quite something, and there are not that many about, it would seem...

You must paint it the colour you want Michell .
I am sure that the Red chosen by Ferguson was done so because it is so appealing .
Using yellow paint will be difficult , it must have a white base coat if it is to cover properly or else you will need dozens of coats .
The Mk1 did have a Stoneleigh Grey chassis so that is easy .
Does the tractor have Multipower ? There are stickers on the bonnet for this if it does . The Mk1 stickers differ from the Mk2 though .

This one have no multi power . ITS a 1964 MRK 2 . So you Say that the MRK 2 have yellow to the hole body ?? If I understand you correct . The one one you tube . Its a movie from a tractor show and its wery beautyfull ..it have a grey body with yellow bonnet and for me it look's like its a MRK 2 with a Oil filter just up and down. Not 15 decree Angel ( 192 engine)
Can you Tell me how about collors to this tractor I have here . Thanks so much πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ‘

Just in passing, I came across this Ferguson paint colour chart, which you may find interesting/useful.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source= ... WU2SVwj3Me

It suggests that the early Mk1 MF65s had a different grey, but that the later ones and all the Mk2s used the Stoneleigh grey.

It also gives colours for implements.
