    I think it is good to try and keep things looking good even if they are older machines.

    Give the company a better image,even if it doesn't make the machine run better and when you start working them they will get scratched and dirty again :cry:

    I see you have 200 LC decals on it:confused:

    Good job:usflag:

    That looks nice. I always feel that keeping good paint on a machine makes the company stand out as a company that cares about it's machines and cares about the job. Scratches are going to happen and they add character to a machine but when rust starts to take over then it is time to re paint.

    Not bad. Good choice in colors, I personally like the new paint job on the C models a lot so that's neat that you did that with yours even though it's a tad older. ;)

    Man makes me want to paint my 690. How many hours you got on it ? Our has 12900 hrs and the motor or pumps haven't been touched yet. The pumps could use a tune up though. Hope the new machine will work as good as the old 690

    I like the paint, not feeling the 200CLC decals on a 690 though.

    X2, I think it just doesn't quite work since it looks nothing like a 200C LC...looks like a 690. ;)
