I just found something cool about this old tiller. I already knew ME sold this to Bolens in 1954 and just changed the name to Mustang, but I just found this had a wheel kit to replace the tines and various attachments, I always wondered why the bar on the front (actually the frame) sticks out past the tines. I just figured I'd add this for all you Bolens fans LOL.

Your welcome, i meant to type ''you going to paint the tines black?" i forgot the e at the end of tins :wallbanging: spelling :wallbanging: stinks, anyways, if i remember correctly the tines were black oxie coated.
Lot's of red is good, makes painting easier lol, lol, it will pop and scream with the decals and all the highlights.
