A while back I took apart my little J.D. 70.  After a bunch of cleaning and prepping I got it painted and reassembled. I'm not real happy with some of the paint, but it will wait a few months and let it cure before I fix it.  I put a metal seat pan on it and used a cover from another machine. The wife is making a new cover as I sit here and type.  I drove it outside today and got some photos.  It is overcast and cloudy  but here are the requisite pictures.  I have the mower deck already done and hiding under a blanket under the steel rack.  It will go back on later this spring.  I intend to use this machine and my Wheel Horse 857 as my back up mowers.    I no longer care if my big mower wants to be cantankerous or not!   :D     ​Rick

What part aren't you happy with? The front nose piece doesn't look to have the same depth of shine, but it's probably the angle. I can't tell.......

Once you put decals on her, you'll be tickled pink with it.  Mine never look just right till I apply decals, then.... "POP" !!
