That looks pretty good. What did you use for paint and what type of paint gun?

Farm implement John Deere yellow and flat black were the colors used. The plastics got a rough sanding and then primed with a prime specially made for extra adhesion to plastic. All the metal also got sanded and primed with a self etching primer. Rough sanding, primer, wet sand, primer, paint, wet sand, more paint, and last a couple coats of clear coat. Couple of flaws from putting it back together a little to soon but otherwise turned out really well.
