Eddy the paint swatches arrived. Wife sent me pictures. Yea I know the colors won't be true that way but better then nothing. I guess my thing would be getting something that is repeatable later and holds up to sunlight well and lasts a long time.  I am planning on repainting it piece by piece and working my way around it over time which isn't ideal but get the stuff painted while it is apart.  I need to put it to work when I get home next month so getting the tank and battery boxes done while it is apart makes sense along with any difficult to reach areas in the back then working my way on from there.  Truth is, I have a tough time picking.  I think the one that most closely resembles Caterpiller Highway Yellow, the older color is probably best.  Whatever I can get more of later should I need it.  Out in the future I will probably want to come up with some sort of Air Force blue for my Checker trailer.

How'd you make out with the plugs from the Cat store? I'm guessing I shouldn't have asked.

There were none of the 5/16ths bolts installed.  There was so much mouse house and trash even with the big plugs out they likely could hold water.  Sort of a remnant of gasket left which I have scrapped off.  Just going to use gasket maker on there to keep the water from coming in the top.  Might use some of the rubber sheeting I have around to make some sort of flap to keep the rain off the back housing.  The canopy does a pretty good job for most of it.  Going to order some brake rod boots to keep critters out of those compartments and I have the big plugs.  As long as I don't have a yet undiscovered problem with the left side finals, it should be about like new in there and be fine the rest of my life.
