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:laugh:

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.

All the posts about not painting them and that isn't even an option in the poll.......

Mine are painted green but that is because they are from before the days of KBOH and are weld hooks (raw material).

I figured the "don't paint the plated hooks" option was the "Get a life Tom" option.:laugh:

X2 but didn't want to select it.
X3, I went back and forth on the poll and looking at the results, couldn't pull the trigger on the "Get a life" option.

I remember waiting for clevis to be zinc plated before ordering my sets. IIRC Kenny had the hooks available in zinc before he had the clevis done. I left my "au naturale" as a little bit of gold bling on both ends of my tractor.

If I had to vote (or if I had to paint) I'd match the surface I mounted them on, green for the FEL and black for the BH bucket. So I still can't vote yet :laugh:

Just my 2 cents.

I updated the poll to include the option to leave your hook be the way they came so you fellas can participate.:thumbup1gif:

Once the poll closes, we'll tally them up with the "get a life" option. :lol:

Jason,

Thanks for adding the "leave 'em the way they came" option. I thought about that after but I didn't see the edit button to update.

:yahoo::bigthumb: THANK YOU JASON. Now that I have voted, the world is back to normal, and I'll be able to get some sleep tonight instead of having to decide whether to vote green, or black or yellow.:laugh:
I just couldn't not vote on another GTT poll now could I?:nunu:

I still have a complaint to the poll bureau that after voting I can no longer see who voted what... why does that happen?:dunno:

How in the world are you going to paint them if Gizmo's got all the paint? You would have to use JD paint and Gizmo has it all.
Guess that leaves me in the no paint column. Didn't want to mark the get a life column. :lolol:
