    Paint???

    Just received my Ken's bolt on hooks and clevis bracket. My question is should I paint them or leave the original finish? I see other members have done it both ways.

    There are a few threads in the other (vendor) forum about this, even a poll posted: http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...ecisio-ns.html

    My vote is leave them o'natural but maybe I'm a bit biased

    Edit: Many of the painted pics you see on the website are from before they where plated and we only offered them primered.

    Painted mine

    I painted mine but the chain has knocked off some of the paint so natural is showing through. I doubt I will repaint them unless I just need to use up some paint.

    I'm going to go with Kenny's advice and leave them as is. I like the idea of them standing out and being noticed like adding chrome to my Harley. Besides who should know better than the man that makes these high quality products. Thanks Ken they are well made and I received them in three days. Great advice. If the wife allows me time this weekend I'll get them mounted and send pictures.

    Well I found some time today and added Ken's bolt on hooks and clevis bracket. I like the way they look naked. No paint here.
