I was sanding down my free Deere hood to play with some fiberglass today and found some interesting paint. Does anyone know if this was a factory paint setup like the "patio" series or was this some redneck thing?

Depending on how hard it is to fix, I would like to offer as a service.

what color is under the orange ?. It didn’t take long for John Deere’s Marketing Group to find out that customers buying John Deere garden tractors wanted a green tractor and not one of a different color. Sales of the Custom Color tractors were disappointing and in the 1971 model year, production of the custom color tractors ceased. Dealers repainted many of the tractors and hoods green to get them sold. Many of the seats were used to make parts counter stools, were given away, or they ended up laying around on dealer parts shelves for years waiting to be picked up by collectors. The yellow seats, of course, were used on the green tractors and the first to be used. Because of this, yellow is probably the hardest color of seat to find.
