I want to repaint to top of the hood (not the sides) and the top of the rear fenders. I know, not the correct way to repaint a tractor, but I plan to just sand and spray can the worst of it to preserve it, as I am not restoring it, and plan to use it. Just want it looking nicer. Tractor is 1967 model 102, Picture in next post .

You might be able to blend it on the edges of the hood and fenders. wet sand it and rub it out after you spray it.

If you just want to preserve the top of the hood and don't care much how it looks just mask the sides off and paint it,then hide the part line with some pin stripe tape-----------Thats kinda what some used car dealers do.

On the hood, it will be easier to take ten minutes and carefully mask off the decals, prep the surface, remove the hood and paint it. Then peel off the tape to show the decals again.
Casey, I know you well enough to know the new-old line will bug you and this isn't any harder than doing it half way.

As for the fenders, you won't be seeing them as you ride and the line should be less obvious. Watch where the overspray might go.

Casey that Cub looks like some of my stuff , you remember ?  You know how I would preserve the whole tractor ,,,,    mix some WD40 from the gl. container with some clean motor oil, in a spray bottle ,  does it all , stops rust , cleans and shines all in one lol

Just mask the decals off and paint the darn thing. :rocker2: :dancingbanana: :rolling: :bounce:



Warning :offtopic: stuffs below. :bigrofl:

It's a shame someone took the original Rubber seat off.I miss mine.They were unique and pretty comfy and they don't crack up in the winter.


The 102 didn't have a Seat base like the other Cub Cadet tractors 122 123 ect ect.


Here's a 102.Seat has a Metal base and the rubber is streched over it and suspended.Acts like a cushion without the foam filling.



Here's a 123 with the Flip up Seat base.



Here's a Seat base off of a 122,123,ect,ect on Ebay cheap.



I think Farmerall has a parts 125.Maybe he'll send you the seat base?
