Looking very nice! Man I love the looks of the 1886! The newer models don't look as good imo.

Question:  Is it a good idea to place something under the gas tank, since it sits directly on metal? I was thinking about cutting a piece of rubber from a old huge tractor tube, and placing it under the tank so its not metal on metal. Good or no?

Thanks

I would, but that is just my opinion. I got some black rubber mat/flooring cut offs from a flooring company for free. I put that stuff under my batteries, gas tanks, in between clamps and metal, basically between anything that is metal to metal that I don't want scratched or the paint damaged or worn through over time.

Thanks

I would put something under it.  On my 120, I used some self-adhesive foam rubber that goes on the bottom edge of pickup truck bed caps.  It has been in place for 4 years and had held up well on a machine that is used several times a week during the spring, summer, and fall.

Im curious on how good it works. Have you posted elsewhere about this? Seems like it would be a great idea.

I decided to just use and old tube with 3m adhesive. looks nice, seems functional. --CHEAP--- lol. Decided to do the gas tank white, and the strap and cap black.

I've been following this refresh/re-power for awhile and wanted to say it looks great.  I'm working on a refresh (still) on my 1886-02.  I'm curious: what paint did you use on the body?  Looks great, just curious.

<----see my avatar for the color I used on mine (IH White) - seemed to match the original paint pretty close.

 

Can't wait to see your final pics!
