Thanks for the pics. My guess on the grill is that it was dinged at some point then straightened out and that left a weak spot without paint that rusted through.

I agree ,that would explain missing mesh behind the grill

I notice your nose piece has no white decals on it and the depressed area around the grill is not painted flat black. This leads me to believe its been repainted. As far as powder coating goes, because of the high heat needed to apply it, you can not use any body filler on the metal parts you are coating. So, the sheet metal parts must be perfect! Any small defect would be made more noticeable by the process.

I've had Both brands and the Horse will be much more fun to work on and drive!   My Ford was Smooth but hard to work on with all that metal and tight spots to find things.  Horses steer very nice and easy. I DO recommend putting on those U-shaped seat springs on the horse like some of their models had for better seat ride. I'm too old to stand the pounding of rigid seats anymore. Even Cub Cadet ones are about same.

I think sometimes the heat in the design of the muffler that close to the grill causes the metal to breakdown & become brittle. Those look like very nice projects. Keep us all updated & congrats.

Awesome projects,

there are expensive body filler systems that can be powder coated, but I haven't tried them.

On the powdercoating, member mike912e has powder coated some of his cub cadets and would be a good person to ask about the process and what he had to do.  His work is VERY nice.
