Nice looking work Ray, First time I have noticed your "holder" for hardware to be painted, I like that, beats poking the stuff thru a sheet of cardboard!!!:thumbs: Next time I have a good sized bit in the drill press I will have to create something like that.

That holder does come in handy for painting.
There are several sets of holes that will hold from 1/4 to 1/2 inch bolts.

Yup .. I'm getting tired of painting green myself.
Looks like the next one is going to be red.

Looking good, Ray. Hope your sprocket works out for you. So the red is a hint of what's coming next? Hopefully, I won't have withdrawal symptoms between builds.:bigrofl:

Ray, that looks great. What type/brand of green paint are you using on the Ridemaster? I'm just curious as I'll be painting my Power Ho in the spring. I've read that Oliver Green and ol CAT Yellow are reasonable matches for the original colors.

This is the Valspar paint from TSC.
The Oliver green and Old Caterpillar yellow are the colors that I started out with.
Some times the Old Cat yellow is hard to find and I've found that the new Cub Cadet yellow is an exact match for the Old Cat yellow.

The new muffler just came today.
It's the same diameter and the same design as the muffler I had on it for the test drive but this muffler is three times longer.

I'm thinking that it should be quieter than the other muffler.
