I remember in the 50's seeing the sickle's bare with the end boards yellow, but restoring types have painted the stuff green. If I ever find one now to match to my old Deere tractors, I'll go with a flat black on the sickle and probably clear coat the end board.

The last swathboards I remember used on my father's #5 mower were all natural wood, and varnished, not painted. I believe that there was a JD logo on them and that the "stick" was painted yellow. I'd suggest green paint for the cutterbar. Ours was always to old and too faded to have paint, but I recall that whenocasionally it got a replacement knife gaurd, those were green. The knife sections themselves were aluminum colored (until they rusted). I still have a spare pitman and swathboard out in the garage somewhere and the last time I saw either, they were both varnished.
