Ok guys here is what I'm 99.999 sure is a 30 cart.But how did it get this way sounds like a no brainer right,Well lets look at the facts hope my pics are good enuff  so you guys can see.

 

Well first you think a guy just painted it Red with Silver wheels {sounds good }until does not look John Deere Green under the Red paint more of a Gray.Well then someone just stripped it down and painted it that would make sence.{Right}

 

Hmmm but how are the John Deere and 30 decals still there if they stripped it{Hmm taped them up??} no signs of that no even a little bit.

 

Now add this in I took my knife and went under the decal it's John Deere Green under there.

 

There is no over spray on the frame it looks nice and factory Black, the Yellow shows from under the Silver on the wheels so all makes sence until I get to the tub

 

How could you leave the paint under the decals Green and take it off everywere else

 

Idea's ???

Mask the decals and blast it. Then paint. Decals were not easy to get 15+ years ago. You saved what you could. Good Luck, Rick

you can try using some paint remover to see if you can remove the red - if it does then you can try removing the paint on the decals

do not use paint stripper

 

good luck and take your time

Looks lik it was done up in MF colours by someone. The inside of the tub could have been repainted. It's a mystery you may never be able to solve. It's a very nice cart regardless of it's history.

Hmmm...

They may have been or matbe a Deere guy seen one of there and put a little twist on how they made it.So far have not seen another brand that looks just like

but there may be one out there

you can try wet sanding the decals with 320 to 500 grit 

I think should remove the paint from them

once you start to see the decals I would switch to 500 grit
