Hello,
Being new on here, and new to the world of refurbishing lawn tractors figured I would ask a couple of questions that have probably been asked hundreds of times on here. Oh yeah, I checked the search but maybe didn't use the right descriptions.

Where would one buy a replacement seat for a 1200 that has the mounting on the back for the arm rest brackets ? Also where's a good place that would have cans of matching spray paint for the cub colors, perhaps premixed.

Thanks, Joe

P.S. How do you think these tires and wheels look on here ?

Joe, your seat is original but no longer usable? (I see the cracks and understand 'wet behind syndrome')
Check with the site sponsors to see if any of them have one. If not, time to get creative.
Up here, I usually take my seats to a guy about 10 mile from here. He is into the Upholstery and Boat Seats, but he will do what ever pays. I would look for an upholster in your neck of the woods and see if any of them would be willing. You may have to make a couple concessions (solid instead of sculpted, vinyl instead of plastic) but someone should be able to do something with it.

Joe , you'll be hard pressed to find a cub lowback seat that has the armrest mounting holes . That seat with a good none cracked cushion would be a valuable find. They are what people restoring the rare cub 800 are looking for .

 

If that seat pans OK and you decide to go with a later model cub high back replacement seat , Id be interested in that seat pan even with the cracked vinyl cushion .

 Once in a blue moon I do occasionally come across a replacement cushion for the lowback seats .

If your just looking to replace the cushion, check your measurements and compare to this:

Can anyone tell me if the original seats have the foam rubber glued to the metal seat bucket? Trying to figure out if I could get this to work on my seat bottom using the foam and covering from this one http://www.ebay.com/...=item1e5cc9a730

I've got those seats piled up, unfortunately they look as bad, in not worst than yours. AS the others said, finding a good one or one with the back holes is nearly impossible. Even a blind squirrel finds a not every once and awhile.

Wheels and tires look ridicules. Keep the originals. You asked.

That is the highback seat Jlaws was talking about. Don't think you could make it work on your original pan.

Best place to get paint would be the CaseIH dealer. Federal yellow and 935 IH white. Cub looks great, but how about a picture of that car?

Nice Dodge. I had a 64 Polara 500, but it was only a 318. Great old car though! It had Bucket seats and floor shift (Auto). My brother had a 64 440 way back when. 383 w/ 440 Magnum heads, 4-speed, and 3.90 gears.
