The last few days I've had some much-needed spare time to get several things done. Removed the rear tires/wheels off of the Cub 123 (still has the original Goodyear turf tires, in good shape), took them to my local tire shop to have some tubes put in them... will pick them up tomorrow.
Also, finally started some painting on my Speedex 1631. It's my favorite garden worker, so I'm not interested in a showroom finish, but it'll be a pretty good brush job. The original paint had faded and I wanted to give the metal some better protection than it had. It'll look pretty good when finished. I'm using some Valspar oil-based primer, then Valspar's IH
red. Sometime next spring or summer, I'll order a new set of decals for it. I'll try to remember to take the camera outside with me tomorrow and get some pictures. Then I'll post some before and after shots here. Also need to fit up the belly mower to it and see if it works.
Still on the list of things to get done: Get the GT6000's snow blade and see what's needed to put it on the PGT9000. I think all it needs is a different bracket for the front of the tractor (I think I can cobble one together out of stuff I have laying around).
