We are officially off the jack stands. As usual, I have issues seating tires. Good thing too as I need them to replace the lower front control arms on my 95 Camry. Here are the three Show Machines. I'll get them all out tomorrow so I can set up to work on the 165's Deck. I have another donated mower coming in soon.

Started May 3rd, so 5-1/2 Months so far, Depending on the deck and funds I am on track to keep the restore at 7-8 months. With a full engine restore I average 9 months like on Old Girl.

Moved them all outside so I can clean up the shop. Here are some daylight pictures. For the 800' or so ride to the driveway it drove well. I think my Grandson is going to love it!

You need to build a big glass outdoor display case to park them in.

Deck time.... I was concerned that I would see corrosion under the grass and leaves, but after using the shop vac it looks good and the spindles spin free.
