    Question Renovating metal grille (4410)

    Hi y'all! First time poster here.

    Recently aquired a 4410 LCUT with 1600 hours on the clock. The market for these tractors here in Norway is huge, but there is really short supply. Was really lucky to get this one - it's well serviced, and mechanically very sound, but cosmetically it has some work to do.

    The hood and cowl on both sides have some cracks, mostly near the fastening lugs, so the fit is not as tight as it should be. These will eventually get replaced, but it's not high on the list. I want to do the less expensive repairs first, and do a full service (just to be sure).

    The metal grilles on the front and side panels look pretty sad. I want to do something about it, so figured I'd ask for your experiences here. First of all they'll need a good washdown to be completely clean, but how to proceed from there? Was thinking of maybe spray painting them black (just the metal grille, mind you), but than I'd need to be sure that the small holes doesn't get clogged up.

    The front of these tractors are REALLY exposed,,,
    I was amazed mine did not have more damage when I acquired it,,,



    The first thing I did was start to fabricate a grill guard,, but,
    I stopped by the JD dealer, and they were taking this guard off a tractor, because it had been damaged.



    I figured out how to adapt the guard,,, nothing gets near the grill, now!



    So, I recommend that you preserve what is left with a guard,,
    and hopefully some one else will stop by to help with repairs.
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!
