Stan I like the way you think! I have an old picture (somewhere) of when my father just had it painted and it does look sharp.

I may just throw tradition to the wind and go with yellow. I have till summer to decide. Thanks for your input. You should get some pics of that poor little m-420 :lol:

You got it. I just called my local JD dealer and the only part he didnt have was the plate at the bottom. And they are not avalable anymore.
