Good evening! I have been blowin' up this forum with post recently and want to say I really appreciate all the advice. I hope I haven't posted too much stuff. A lot of this boils down to being springtime- and this year it has been very wet- so I have had a lot of down time tinkering in the garage!
What I am looking for is a set of the original side panel springs (or a clever redneck engineering solution) to keep the side panels in place on the LGT/Jacobsen closed sided tractors. As one can clearly see- a bungee strap wrapped around the gas tank is not ideal. I ask the question because I am thinking of repainting the tractor- and posted a painting thread tonight in the general garden tractor section- but then remembered- I really need a way to get these panels lined up and secured before I spend too much time refinishing them, As always- advice and tips welcomed!
(better yet- A lead on some original springs!)
