Nice use of John Deere Green. Honestly, nice use of colors.

One thing I noticed in ur blog is you said you didnt sand all the origional paint off before you layed the Green. Actually that is good as the origional paint is put on under ideal conditions and will bond to the case much better than we can do.
Once you strip panels to bare metal they are exposed to oxydation and all other types of bad things (like fingerprints) and for proper adheasion the metal needs to be washed and preped with other chemicals before being primered. That adds a lot more complexity and cost to the job.

Ya I bought some reflective yellow and some generic green at first, but it didn't cut it. It looked like crap compared to the paint that i got now.
