Welcome to GTtalk, you are where you need to be for all the Bolens info you can handle. Tell your Dad, he did a great job restoring that Ride-Master and I can't wait to see a video of him driving it around !!

Do you know the Name/Brand of paint you used on this?

Here's the info regarding the paint that dad used:  came from Lowe's, Rust-Oleum; Specialty; For Farm Equipment; Original Equipment; Heavy Duty Enamel; Protects against the elements; Stops Rust.  I don't see a name of the colors on his notes though.  Hope this helps some.

Thanks Jack!  I did pass along your thanks to him.  We don't know much about them either, but thankfully we have found the right place to find info.  We are a little partial to this one.  :)

I'll move this to the Bolens forum.

Thanks for moving it for me.  I am very green to the forum thing.  Everyone has been so helpful thus far.

Thanks!  I will definitely be posting a pic or video when it is ready.  We already have some photo shoots planned for it.  :) :camera:
