not bad being 25-30 year old mower, The bottom was done with under body coating....as for the top it doesnt look the greatest due to the pitting from the rust and such but it was all cleaned before primer and paint, still have 1 o 2 more coats of red till the deck is done...then its onto the engine...heres some pics...

That underside looks really good! What brand of undercoating did you use on it?

the craftsman mower was started but junked after finding extremely bad rust, it wasnt worth fixing really, but thanks for the comment on the garden power!!
