Nice job. I do think that you should paint over the seat label, its an insult to that fine Bolens to have a Crapsman label on it(LOL). I hope to get my Bolens looking that good. Good Luck and Merry Christmas.

If he were closer, I'd buy him a plain black seat for that one in trade!

Your tractor looks likes it's ready to plow!

Tractor looks great! Always liked the older Bolens.

 

Seat looks like the    :shoot2:  chickens were perched on it, dropping you-know-what! 

 

 

Gloss black Rustoleum will cover that "chicken stuff" up very nicely!  :wave:

Something has to be done!

I can't believe the comments I am reading about this seat! Maybe he hasn't found another for it? Folks, get over it!

The seat was found on Kijiji for $39 and it was new ! so i could not pass it up as high back seats sell (used) for upwards of $50 and new for around $200 is do have some paint and i was going to repaint it but i found a Toro seat (from a commercial Z turn) that i plan to mount the seat is (temporary) i did get my bolens seat covered so i Might remount it also here is a Video of the blower in Action

Also merry Christmas You should See what the Big fellow brought me :) lets just say L.E.D

If you were closer, I'd like to have that Craftsman seat. Got a GT 18 it would look real good on.

I think the Bolens looks right smart. The blower is a great fit and looks to move snow, bet the seat holds your behind off the ground... I think those both qualify as successes. :D

Did you have a build thread on the adapting the blower? If so, do you have a link?

Glad you're ready for the weather, it looks like we're gonna get some white stuff.
