    Default Me too

    I have searched the net for hours, posted here in acmoc and bought the russell grader archive book by P.A. Leterneu and still not sure. I have a 1925 super special that is going to the powder coat booth in a month. I have found pictures of russells on the net but they are the older styles before the "supers". As far as the supers go I have found a pic of a Super Mogul that shows it had a red frame with white wheels and blade. I find it hard to believe that they painted the blade and wheels white. Different people told me to scratch the grease off of the circle turn and look in the places that the sun did not hit. Well yeah that part is red but I would like to know what all the colors were. Unless something changes the Super Special will be painted IH red with IH white accents. I think I might change it to neon green and purple so that when someone tells me that is not the right color I can say prove it. Then, maybe I could find a color picture! Thanks for letting me vent!

    Sometimes you have to click twice to get to work right.

    I would like to say a big thank you to those who have shared their pictures.

    I am still in need of a few more pics if anyone could help me out!

    Motor Patrol No. 6
    Fifteen Motor Patrol
