Another outstanding job. Looks like he just stepped out of the showroom. Looking forward to Little John.

Larry,
I started back thru and decided to just ask...
Did you fill the tires?
Might be a good idea to do so if you're going to use that back blade any.

No, I didn't fill the tires. When I use the blade it goes on Hulk II with the rear Ag tires. It does real well on him. BOH is just for show "for now". https://www.youtube....h?v=-m15uemFXHE I am actually mowing this area now.

Wasn't supposed to storm tonight so I moved all the GT's to the Wife's Pergola. We are doing a camp out in the shop tonight. I flipped all the seats up, guess they will get a rinse tonight.

The Second canopy came in today. Now for the $69.00 question. I will have to modify this to make it fit. Consists on drilling the mounting holes in the brackets larger to fit my spring bolt studs. The way it is supposed to go is with bolts down through the springs. Mine have the studs that come up. Should I modify it, or give up on the canopy for this?

What the heck, it's only $69.00. I drilled the holes and ran into another snag. I had to put the mounts through the bottom of the seat springs, little challenge to get the spring nut started. I had to locate two 1-1/2 bolts for the front seat bracket, the kit had the correct bushings for the front seat pivot.  Once the bottom bracket was tightened up it feels pretty stiff and makes a good grab bar. This is also the transport mode, Only 2 wing nuts hold the canopy on. I wish the canvas was Grey, Do I have any options there?

You'll need to know what material it is before searching for a fabric dye.
Make sure it's a dye that has a colorfast process. Natural fibers are easier. Salt water and vinegar will often do it.
Just double check.

Girl in HS dyed her shoes for prom... It rained... She had purple feet for a long time.

The manual says "Vinyl Canopy". Feels like canvas to me.

I needed to move them out of the shop tonight. The LED upgrade on BOH makes it the brightness of all of them. Yes I rode him around a while. If I decide to mow with him I can do mowing at 3 AM now.
