I wire wheeled the fender pan today. Took forever. I need a sandblaster...or an electrolysis tank.  Anyway I got it all cleaned up and put the first coat of primer on it. I also redid the battery box while I had it off. I took a piece of steel out of an old chair and bent it in the shape of the box. I then cut out the old piece out and bolted the new one in because I don't own a welder. Should work fine though.

Looking good. I will tell you a welder is probably one of the most beneficial tools I've got. Well worth the $600 I invested in my little 140 w/gas. It ranks up there with good lighting and a concrete floor... it just changes your whole experience!

Almost done!!!! The dash panel arrived in the mail today so I got the throttle and choke cables hooked up,steering wheel bolted on, and the rubber grommet around the steering wheel in place. I also got the fender pan in place. I need to build or make footrests. Not sure what I am goingto do there. The deck undercarriage was dry enough to put back together, so I got that all together and mounted back on the tractor. The red parts hanging up are the very last ones I have to paint!!! I am goingto pick up the starter tomorrow and I hope to have it running tomorrow afternoon.

it looks great did you buy a complete decal kit for it or just the dash piece? as for the foot rest go to tracotr supply and pick up some alum. diamond plate and make your own foot rest

It lives!! I picked up the starter this morning and put on the parts that I painted last night. It turned right over but was making a terrible racket around the engine shield. It just turned out the flywheel was hitting on the cover. So I loosened up the bolts and moved it around till it wasen't hitting anymore. After that,it fired right up. So I took it out for a drive. It is almost rattle-free with the new ISO mounts(other than the makeshift muffler). I still need to do some other small things to it: muffler,foot rests,a good seat, and an amp meter.

It turned out really nice. I like the red. I love the first time I drive a tractor after a refurb.

Well....I guess it wouldn't really be considered a muffler. Straight pipe would be a better word.
