    Another coat of THAT color, or something a little more fitting of Fisher? Admittedly, if it needed scraping, that's probably a great improvement!

    It's none of my buisnes but it would look so much better if the paint was closer to the Fisher color.

    The Dupont Ready to paint (Paintshop) paint yellow is pretty close. I just bought some of that with some of their black to tint it with until its just about right. Its a laquor (I can't spell) based paint so you just dump it into your spray gun and go. I cover it with an automotive clear coat with hardener. I'm hoping it holds up to plowing.

    Your plow looks good for a first coat!
