Wow, What a great paint job, mirror finish. What did you use for paint and did the hood require a lot of filling, or was it in nice shape?

Thanks, the paint I used is all over the can, but i wrote it down out in the shop,I just have to find it.The hood was pretty rusty and pitted, but nothing that time and elbow grease did'nt fix. Hope I can find another one to do.I would like to take an empty trailor to that wheelhorse show in June and see if I can buy some stuff there,plus I would like to meet some of you garden tractor fanatics I've never been to a wheelhorse show

They seem to always be for sale, just a matter of how much the pocket book wants to pay. If you are willing to come down this way you should come to the Eastern Extravaganza that will be in Dover, PA this year. Going to be a lot of fun.

It is going to be everything. I wanna say it is in September. The dates are in the events forum. There is also the Wheel Horse show in Ardentsville, PA. I can't remember the date for that one.

I should add that for the Dover show we are going to try and have our first GTtalk reunion and then make it a yearly thing. I am hoping by next year I should be able to travel to more shows in other states. This year there is just too much going on to make that happen.
