I'm attending the Mow-In this year again. I plan on bring my 24G and my Gravely Custom. Also bringing a bunch of stuff for my friend, Al. Pretty fair ride, but well worth it.

I usually prime, apply a couple of brush coats, sand, finish with a spray coat. Not show quality but good enough for a working tractor.

I'm coming to the Mow-In from the Adirondacks in upstate NY, a two day ride but this is one Mow-In that I don't want to miss.

Ok, so I tried some "Majic" school bus yellow from tractor supply and not only did the color not match but the paint is total garbage! It "alagatored" something fierce and was still tacky 24hrs later, stay away my friends. However, I went to Home Depot today just to see what they had and took a chance on some Rustoleum painters touch 2X in what they call "Golden Sunset" & I think its a pretty darn close match, what do y'all think?

I have used the painters touch 2x already. I thought it sprays nice, much better than regular rustoleum paint. I think you have a close match.

Had to get rid of all the 'gatored paint so I figured I may as well strip down the front grill and rear mount assembly down to bare metal and start fresh.
