Depends on what you want and how deep your pockets are. Good paint can be expensive. The PREP work is what is important. A total dismantling of all parts like what John Smith and Marv Baumann did; blasting, priming, and painting is a huge job. When I did my 8N in 2003 I cleaned and removed the dirt and rust as best as I could, no primer, then painted all the cast iron with a can and brush, no thinner. After a few days in the booth drying I then went around and touched up with rattle cans all the spots where brush marks were and any weak or missed areas. I tool all the medium grey sheet metal to a local bump shop to be blasted and painted and it worked out well: they did a good job. Tractor has lasted now for 20 years...
