Talked my son into buying a D130 mower a couple years back. We went to a small dealer picked it up and have used it 3 years now. While getting it ready for spring I noticed the paint pealing in a couple spots. Removed the deck and notice a lot more flaking paint underneath. So I started stripping things down and began noticing paint pealing everywhere. In fact it is so bad I am ashamed I talked him to buying one of these green machines. I know we are not the only one to find this problem so my question is how did some of you others deal with the problem? It appears there is no primer anywhere or if there is any it did not bond to the metal. I just don't think there is any. Will I just be better to strip the entire body and repaint? (Checked around and decals don't seem to be available). I have considered coating the underside with bed liner coating. I have used that stuff on some old automobiles and it seem to stand up well but they don't mow grass either. I think this is the worst paint job I have ever seen on a piece of John Deere machinery. Then the deck is doing the same thing.
