Hi guys, been busy with personal issues and been helping dad some with refresh of the GT6000 we will be selling. Dad stripped it down and repainted the machine. We had issues finding the proper Gray paint. I had idea to do a custom repaint to freshen it up and made it look quite good in my opinion! We also will be adding some custom touchs. Frame needs to be painted ,forgot to do it when he removed engine to fix a horrible crank seal leak. Hope you think the color is nice, adding stripes to fender and foot steps.

Looking good. Is that a craftsman II? Any attachments with it? & how much are y'all asking for it when finished?

Thanks guys! What little help I can be to dad with my back sure makes day go by faster! Countryboo I think it might be by decal on hood?! We only have the deck for this one. Had a snow plow given to us but for older model and all the mounts are wrong. Not sure how much we will ask for it yet. The 50" deck and gear drive should make it a good reseller up here.

Was busy with issues and forgot to update you all. We got the stripe on and of course the only gray we found was off some. The factory Gray is the same shade thought, wish we found it sooner. Dad did not want to re shoot the hood so we got idea to add a stripe to tie in the stripe on fender to hood and foot rests. Think it works out and is subtle way to do it! Dad painted the chassis as well as rear wheels. Now to do the front wheels and if dad wants to install some goods!

Well other than the deck it is done ! Dad finished painting the front wheels and we got the fender and foot rests on. Mounted the seat we had on the snow blower tractor. Works better on here! I am happy with it, not a pro job by no means but we enjoyed doing it!

Dad painted the deck with bed liner and top coat of gray to suite the color scheme. I got the blower machine up so dad could swap the left front tire out and install a tube in it. I compared the two. Both look good compared to when we got them.

I detailed the GT today and let it sit in sun. Dad was complimented on it by a neighbor walking past! Was nice to hear that!
