    Well, It was gettin rusty and sun faded, and light rusty brown just wasnt lookin veryood with a red mower. SOOOOO, I got out a random orbit sander, attached it to a shop vac, put some 60 grit on, and sanded away. Got all the rust and scraches nice and smooth, then went out and bought a couple cans of red medium-gloss spray paint. Heres the Before pic:

    looks great. A little bit of paint goes a long way for appearance
