If it was truely "Restored" that guy is taking a huge loss, The engine alone would need $1200 in rebuild parts if done correctly........

LOL restored. He painted rite over the old paint. Deck is unrestored so the tractor probably was not in bad shape to begin with.

 

He doesn't know how to mask off a decal very well. The shifter decal is $18 on clickitnadstickit

 

Also he did not pull the transaxle out of it. Other wise he would of cleaned all the dirt and junk. "There was no shortcuts in this project it was done right" YA OK what ever you say there buddy. lol.

He needs to go through larrybl Roper 20T 65 page build thread. Now That's how you restore a tractor.

I find that what one man thinks is a good job usually I find to be quite funny. When people want to sell things they think saying restored or gone through means it should fetch them twice the cash. I steer clear of most of those listings because most times it means the seller has to much attachment to his tractor and thinks his items are worth their weight in gold!

Chrome Silver is not a good choice of paint either!

Sadly half the "restored" stuff you see listed for sale is not really restored.

Theres really no money in restoring tractors ,funny thing is the guy would have been better off leaving it original , now the next guy has to work 2x as hard getting the extra layer of paint off to do it correctly. :wallbanging:

If it was FULLY restored you would think the steering wheel and engine would look new too. Engine decals can barely be read

Looks like it was power washed and painted
