    JD black?

    Hi guys -
    I was wondering if anyone can definitively tell me what the black is on the ROPS and frame of my 2320? I made a toolbox bracket to attach to the ROPS of my 2320 and I used the JD "blitz black" that the dealer gave me but it seems as if it is too flat to match...is it maybe the semigloss black that is used instead? I got the impression that the dealer was not entirely sure when they sold the "blitz black" to me.
    thanks in advance
    -JDfun

    I have had very good luck with gloss or high gloss black. Here are the light guards I made that are a high gloss black power coat. I find it matches real well.

    I believe the ROPS are medium gloss. JD has 4 or 5 blacks.

    Randy - Noticed your clock looked familiar. No, it's not hiding any warning lights. Those are blank positions used for things like turn signal indicators on the European version tractors.

    Boy, sure looks like the same one. I really do not like wearing jewlery and I am not one that feels the need for a cell phone. I tried the pocket watch thing also, no go. And with the way we are today with clocks all over the place, I find I do just fine without one. However, I was missing one on the tractors and it seemed like this was a good location. Those clocks are certainly cheap enough.
