That's what I felt like after what I did.  My GT deck was getting dirty/rusty downunder.  So, I spent some quality time on it saturday, got it all cleaned up, took a wire wheel on my drill and scrub'd off all the loose rust scale and dirt, etc.  Primed and painted the bottom, mounted the freshly sharpened blades and left it sit belly up so the paint would cure/harden before putting it back on.  This morning I was walking by it with my wife on the way to the coop and my loving wife told me it did not look right.  Darn, she was right again.  I must have been very tired because I put all 3 blades on, up side down... LOL.  Sure would not have cut much grass that way for sure.

Then, you say "No, it's just that the deck is upside down".

I got a tractor in one where the person mowed all season with three blades on upside down.Almost completely wore the wings off the blades and the person said the cut looked so good that he never thought that there was anything wrong.
