Bought me a Snapper 1650 w/snowblower.  Intend to paint it up some this spring.  Will paint as a MF 1650 like my dad bought new in 1978.  May have some questions as spruce it up and maintain it.Anybody know of any black adhesive to glue splits in the console?  Thanks in advance.

One of the things you might try is polyurethane windshield sealant on your cracks. Don't get the cheap stuff. It will probably take a couple of applications but it should work and it stays flexible.

:welcome: to GTTalk, nice looking snapper you found.
One of our members did a restoration on a 1200 dash, http://gardentractor...to/#entry170549
You might look into a process called Plastic Welding.

Good luck.

Welcome to GTtalk, if you could post a picture of the console area of concern that could help us some.

That is a solid looking tractor you have there, it will look real sharp once you redo it. 

If you can't find what you are looking for don't hestitate to ask, there is never a stupid question, sometimes stupid answers,

 

Dick
