I just finished up with a 1991 John deere 316 build. I Picked it up for $50.00 and discovered that it only had 349.2 Hours on it's hour meter. It spent most of it's Life In Stuart, Florida very close to the ocean with heavy salt air so when it's Power coat paint failed it rusted the whole tractor badly. It was a Long six week project but it came out nice and my son in law uses it weekly now to mow his lawn with. Regards, Hammerdown
Here is how it looked the day I brought it home
Power coat removed, Hour's & Hour's of sanding and body work preparing it for it's Paint job
Finished after stripping it down to the rolling Chassis re-painting the entire frame, four wheel's metal panels and mowing deck.Total cost $632.00
