I wonder what possesed him to paint it that way. I'm shure the Bolens white paint is probably the same price as the Green he used LOL.
The thing that bother's me is, why go through all that trouble "Restoring" it And paint it the wrong color:wallbanging:

I can also guarantee ya it isn't a proper restore, if you look at the pic with the hood opened you can tell they didn't disassemble the dash tower completely and only removed the gauges and sprayed everything else and you can see where they didn't get some of it painted.
