Well, I decided to paint my simplicity 7016, mower deck and tiller. I got this whole set up free from my cousin a couple weeks ago, I was just going to use it the way it was till I realized how bad the rust was. The mower deck is terribly pitted and the tiller wasn't far behind. I figured since I'm painting the mower deck and tiller, I might as well paint the garden tractor while I'm at it.
I used a rust stop on everything, then primed and painted. I'm even using a paint gun not rattle cans. Although this isn't going to be a super nice restore paint job, this garden tractor is going to be used for all mowing and tilling.
I already got the dash, fenders, tiller and mower painted. Hoping to do the frame and hood of the GT tomorrow morning.
After the pictures, I'm going to put new rings in the engine but that's after I get a little more cash up.
