I picked up this little 100 lawn tractor in the spring of '13:  HPIM2778.JPG  

 

I didn't get a lot done with it last winter because of my rotator cuff surgery, but did get some of the parts I could take off easily painted:  HPIM2853.JPG  And refurbished the deck:  HPIM2928.JPG

 

Yesterday, I brought it into the shop & removed some of the parts I'd previously refinished.  Today, it went on the rack:  HPIM1470.JPG  HPIM1469.JPG

Peeled a few more parts off yesterday:  HPIM1479.JPG   HPIM1478.JPG  

 

I'll pull the engine, lift mechanism & a few more parts off before cleaning & fresh paint.

Thanks for the pics!  It gives me hope for my projects to see others happen as mine have stalled out right now.

I need to get me a stand like that.  That looks like it would make things so much easier.  I'd like to do something like that to my 68' 110.  But now that I have a 212.  I'm being told I don't need the 110 anymore and need to sell it. :mad2:

Got a bit more done on the 100 lately, removed, cleaned & painted the drawbar/rear plate:  HPIM1497.JPG

 

Next came the engine shields/battery tray:  HPIM1498.JPG  After cleaning, sanding & priming, the battery tray got several coats of spray  "truck bed liner", the rest was coated with JD "Blitz Black".  HPIM1499.JPG

 

Today it was time for the muffler shields,"high heat" paint on them.

Nice little 100 you have there. Can't wait to see it done, so I'll be following along for sure.

Battery tray covered with bedlinen = PURE GENIUS!!! 

 

I know what I will be doing on my 312 worker before the engine goes back in.

Looking good! But what I really like is your saw horses made our of old iron fence posts, at least that's what they look like. I pounded in more than my share of them back in my youth on the Iowa farm where I grew up.
