I repainted my 131 the other day. I used enamel tractor paint. I'm estimating paint, hardener and reducer was around $25 US. Since you always have to buy more than you need.

When you buy tractor paint, you can't be too selective when it comes to colors. If you want green you have to go with either John Deere or Oliver. In my case I went with Massey Furgeson gray.

Now it's onto the interior. Anyone know of a source for new 131 carpet? There are none here in the United States.

The carpet is not all that bad but no all that good either. It's really faded so I was planning on mixing up some RIT die and water or alcohol and put it in a cheap paint sprayer and spray the carpet.

I'm thinking about doing the headliner too. I wish someone sold new restoration parts for this car. I got lucky and found a new automatic shift cover. NOS but that's about it.
