We have to weld a cast front end on a John Deere. How can I get the paint
where I ground to match the rougher cast iron, hide the slick spot.
Thank you,
Charlie

Maybe sandblasting with coarse media and some hand re-working with various punches.

I have been told that the needle scaler is the way to go. Or a flat punch and a hammer.

There are a number of ways you can replace the texture. One is adding a little sand to the paint you are using. Another is to put some of the paint in an open container and allow it to thicken to almost a paste and then dab the paint on the spot with the end of a stiff paint brush. You could also add the dust from drywall mud or use the kind of drywall mud that comes in powder form. This would make a paste out of the paint.
