I bought these two Bready tractors last July, a sort of birthday present to myself. I started on them, a then winter came, my shed isn't heated so… I had to wait. But as soon as the weather cleared up I was out there and got it done. And here are some comparative photos of before and after.

Definetly. The deck is in real good shape just needs cleaned real good, sanded, blades pelaced or sharpened and I think she go. But as of right now it still looks like it did in the before photos.

What green is that ? Looks like Dark Hunter green. And how did you apply it ?

It is Dark Hunter Green. It was spray painted on. I wish I had a spray gun or the money to have someone do it but if you take your time and put light coats on it, it isn't to bad. I do have to touch it up a little and then I'm going to put clear coat on it. Oh, and I still have to switch the front tires to trailer tires and take the wheelbarrow tires off.
