Default John Deere Blitz Black

I hear it's super rugged tractor paint and can be reapplied, but haven't heard too much about how it looks with age and wear.

I'm curious if it looks like rattle can **** after it oxidizes.

Anyone ever use this?

Second, the John Deere Blitz Black paint that many speak so very highly of online seems to be quite prone to chipping. That said, I like the appearance, it's extremely easy to touch up, and suspect that the durability will not be a huge issue once everything is together--I just have to be extra careful during the assembly process.

Blitz black was just their code for a low-gloss black. Because it isn't glossy it is easy to touch up without showing. You can do the same thing with others.
