This morning I finished up the controller wiring, powered it up from my other GE tractor, tested it on jack stands and it seems to work.  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  

Now I want to take it for a drive but it needs the sheet metal painted and installed.

Pushed it outside for some pictures and test fitted some of the body panels.

Current state.

Today I worked on preparing and painting some more yellow parts, the red rear battery box is now yellow along with the cover and seat frame working on the rear fenders, they are off of another GE tractor that has a badly rusted out battery box. The box I'm using is a new one that is 1-1/2" taller, allows you to use the taller, larger capacity batteries.

Also worked on the front side covers, one has a small hole in it, will need some welding to patch.

Today was one of those days when it seems like you don't get much done.

Painted the rear fenders, don't like the way they turned out. gonna have to redo them.

Welded up the hole in the one front side cover, now it has a bow in it.

Ran out of yellow paint with 6 pieces left to finish.

Riveted the rear battery box to the frame, cover and seat frame on.

Prepared 1 rear rim for white paint, try to get them both painted tomorrow, dying to get the new rear tires I have for it on.

Project is still moving forward.

I had one of those today also.   Seems like I worked harder today and accomplished less.  I swapped the motor out of a cub 1810 into a cub 782.  I'd love to have a "personal chat" with a few cub cadet engineers!

 Hope tomorrow is better for both of us.     Rick

Today is a much better day, even though I'm not at PA Plowday :wallbanging:

I got all the yellow parts painted except for the hood, including painting the white rear rims. :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  

Pictures coming soon.

A picture is worth a thousand words.  You owe us 967 more words!  :D      or a picture.  

I had a better day also.   I worked on 3 different Cubs a J,D., and a Simplicity.  All minor things but feel like I accomplished quite a bit.  Now to start on my Electrak.         Rick

This morning I put the fenders and side covers on the tractor and another problem has surfaced.

2 different yellows, I bought paint 3 times for it and the last paint is a little different, all the paint was shaky can except for the last batch which is spray gun paint.

So what to do, live with it or fix or it?

I don't like it so I got to fix it, my own fault, I know enough to use the same paint from the same tin but I didn't do that.
