Well i see we changed the web sight around, I was just getting use to the old one lol. Here are some of the before and after shots of the 900 since I got the rims done now. Hope all comes thru on the post.
What happend to all the little charators you could add? Also when I click on insert image, it only ask for a URL. Is the only way to insert photos now with the attach files?

You did a fantastic restore on the Bolens 900. Thanks for posting the update.The new site will be something that we will have to adjust too. I am still trying to learn my way around also.

Looks good! If you click "more reply options" there is a attachment button under the text box, the new attachment setup is a roughly 600x easier then the old one.

Wow, that looks great !! I'm new here, how long did it take you between photos? Also to prove my ignorance on Bolens, are those lights an original option? I like the way they look :thumbs:

I have had the mower since thanksgiving, and yes the lights are a option you could get and some people located them on the side of the hood or in back. i like them in the back. Have noticed that they light up both sides of the mower so if you were to mow in the dark you can see your line of next cut. I must admit the restoration is not a frame off. i plan on using it to till the garden and spruced it up a bit, well maybe more then just a bit lol. i am working on the tiller this week. Thanks for the compliments
