Kinda hard to do sanding and paint, well paint any how. I wet sanded this. Getting ready to install the rear LED's. Waiting on paint to dry. I'll mount the LEDS on the fender before I install it. I can use Hulk II to make sure I don't interfere with the gas tank. Won't be long till I am to the deck.

The lights will be nice to have when you need to mow at dusk or have to have some portable light for some reason.
Have you had a chance to test them yet?

Animal shelter won't take them, and we have free kitten adds all over.

The humane society will probably neuter them for free if they are strays.

Opinions please :wave: . I bought the new seat, but have an issue with the mounting. The seat pan uses the one center bolt and has raised rails to keep things from twisting, The matching attachment plate bolt holes don't line up with anything on the seat. I have another rusted seat that I was able to chase the threads and they seem fine. My thought is to cut out the bottom of this along the dark part and drill correct mount holes for the new seat. This should allow me to adjust it if needed with the center bolt. Thoughts?

If anyone besides you is going to drive it an adjustable seat is nice.

Yea, I am going for adjustable as the original was. If I just bolted it to the swivel plate then I have what I have. PS, I found a new jig saw metal blade. Made quick work on the old seat, and looks like a purrfect fit!

The R&D on the seat mount won't work so I am taking it back for a $60.00 refund. I checked Sears, for a OEM seat it is $169.48 :loosing_it:

 

Was shown a link here. http://www.ebay.com/...X:IT&rmvSB=true This looks like it will work.

The seat has been ordered, and after checking at Fred's, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, and Lowes. (An internet search found the anti skid treads I want) At Grainger.... Must have drove past there 3 times today.
