Got the first coat of paint on today :dancingbanana:

Its just my luck that the Japanese beetles decided to come to the area today and sit on the paint :mad2::shoot2:


What is it with bugs and fresh paint? Maybe we could start getting our paint mixed with DEET.

Color looks great Brian. As always, great job!

Brian

I seem to remember that you said something about not knowing where to put some decals on the mower desk?

I don't know for sure if this will help or not since it's an LK, but here is a thread with some pics on another forum that may help.

Picked up a nice original articulating '69 Lawn Keeper - MyTractorForum.com - The Friendliest Tractor Forum and Best Place for Tractor Information
