What? Say it isn't so! I'd have to try it out once, for sure.

Ditto on the other compliments, fantastic job.

Funny, the disparity between the EK, Simplicity Sunrunner, the JD 500 series, and their larger decked brethren. Any of these smaller units, in my area, can be had reasonably priced. Go up in size to units that have 60" decks or larger? The price almost quadruples. Age difference aside, it is interesting.

Looking forward to pics with the decals, and everything back together.
