So Wednesday evening was my first full length auto body class. Ended up taking the 1782 Super cub in to restore for my dad since he deserves something nice for a change :smilewink:

Its actually in pretty fair shape some of the paint is a little faded in some spots and a few rust spots here and there that's it. Seems the plastic hoods and side shields are expensive and a bit hard to get ahold of so I have a extra pair I found to replace. Feels great to be that far up off the ground :D and I love it.  Funny thing is when its parked next to ol red, its clear the red stands just a little taller with those 15 inch tires.

Really enjoying the class so far have a lot to learn and put some of my questions to rest. Cant wait to start painting it soon :dancingbanana: Gonna put the original cub colors on it for right now since itll be used for yard work again and when I can find a mower deck cheap enough for it. These have the 60inch haban decks on them and they sell for well over 400$

Mike a fellow at work has a Super Cub and he told me the he had a hech of a time getting deck belts because the shop he was trying to get the belts from  didn't believe he had a  Haban deck from the factory on lol   Guess a 60" deck was an option ?  Hope you post lots of pics on this project and I'll see if I can get the fellow he at work to join , I'm sure he would enjoy it and have some input , Al

I thought the title meant you were going to teach us. So disappointing.
