What is/was the original mower deck color  on a 65 Bolens 900. yesterday I sandblasted off red over green? On the underside of the belt cover I saw only green.

Paint it red or black or similar.   That Green is the ugliest color ever put on a Name Brand tractor I believe. Think they got a Bargain price on barrels of paint no one else wanted and used it long time! :( :poke: :shoot2:

Glad you decided to make it original as your tractor restoration is original.
