Got my Unico 15 out today & gave her a cleaning.  Been a lot of dust accumulate on her.  I had her out a few weeks ago, but too cold to wash it then.  She has some scratches, but still looks pretty good I think.

Wow that is awesome Daniel! If you posted about this one in the past I must have missed it?

 

Is that the same as a MTD 990? And that front bumper looks like a master piece that you must have built?

 

Looks great and thanks for the pictures :thumbs:

Yes Chris, an MTD 990, and yes, I built the bumper, copied after what Massey used back in the 60's & 70's.  

 Brian, no, I didn't even bid, but I did save it in "my ebay", and dang....only brought $51 !!!!!!!

Greg, here is where I entered in in our monthly contest way back:  http://gardentractor...12/#entry176181

CR...I wanted it as close to OE as possible....but it was a hard thing to do!  LOL

Actually, I mixed gloss black with Massey "Silver Mist to create the frame color.

That mix looks great! It sure looks like Flint gray to me :thumbs: I think doing the chassis like that instead of black looks so much better IMO. It just seems to blend and show off the details better (hard to describe in words) other than It looks great :D :thumbs:

Just the 42" mowing deck, in ready to use condition.  Just put a new deck belt on a few weeks ago.  It's shaft drive to the deck.
