Got it all back together today. I sprayed two coats of flood penetrol on the underside after cleaning it up a cup brush and one coat of flood on the top, then two coats of JD on the top.This isn't resto quality, just a good paint job. Ordered a new center spindle shaft and pulley and installed all new brgs. AFAIK it's ready to mow!! I guess I'll have to wait for the 14" of snow to melt, maybe in a month,LOL!!
