    Bolt on hooks for bucket.

    I just ordered bolt on hooks for the bucket. I am excited to get them as I know how useful they are.
    I LOVE the painted look, I think it looks factor. So paint them or leave it alone and just bolt them on?
    Btw. I any scrape I get in the bucket that is too deep gets sanded and touched up. I am fussy

    My vote FWIW is leave them plated and not waste time and money painting them.

    I LOVE the painted look, I think it looks factory.
    Ponder this: Is the rest of the hardware on your tractor painted or plated?

    Fact: the coating on Ken's hooks will stay there forever. Any paint you add will eventually chip off.

    Sure, but even with some chips and wear they look better painted. Besides, if they weren't chipped, they wouldn't match the rest of the bucket!
