    Hiya,

    So my new H130 loader and 53" bucket will be in next week and I just ordered a pair of Bolt-On's for it. Now I have to decide what color I want to paint them. Since I have optional paralysis, what better excuse to have a poll. So have at it.

    I'll post pictures after it's done

    With Kenny's new Zinc Chromate Plating it is recommended to not paint them at all.

    And when you use them you will chip and wear your paint off, you don't want dinged up looking KBOGH's do you?

    That said I painted mine JD green

    I painted mine. The paint on the hooks wears off from use, so why paint them? Unless they're only for show!! Don't waste your time.

    Mine are JD yellow, but are also over three years old. If they were plated like the new ones, I would not have painted them.

    I forgot that the hooks are now plated and initially voted for green. Now that I'm reminded of that option I'd say mount them right out of the box.
