Wow! Great paint job, it blends right in with the grass! Where is it in the pic?

 

I guess that additional attention to detail payed off   :smilewink:

 

Looking for action shots?  Next time out I will do some video work  :thumbs:

Here is the 120 working. Does the engine speed at WOT sound right to you?

Another update on the 120.  I picked up some early style hubcaps with the frosted area around the lettering a month ago.  They are in better shape than the caps on it so I cleaned them up yesterday and will swap them tonight.  The newer style caps currently on it are destined for the 312.  :smilewink:

All four after 0000 steel wool and a coat of Maguire's Cleaner Wax that I had in my auto cleaning stash.

The seats are really nice and that price is GREAT IMO.  Quality is tops and the vinyl is very flexible, even softer than the seat currently on it. I am still waiting on my welding lesson from a member of the church to fix my seat pans.

Another update on the "I rebuilt it so I could use it 120"

 

Used the 7 cart and moved 4 wagons full of gravel around the house.  The city took out a 30" diameter long-needle pine and the stump so I relocated the gravel from around the base tree.  I was on my list the city of CR sped up my timeline.  

 

Also, finally got the seatpan fixed! Now it's time to clean up the welds, touch up the primer, then paint the pan. I know the final product will look great withe the hapcoparts seat I have stashed in the basement. Then I will repurpose the seat currently on the 120 to the 312 when I get it here. I am pretty sure the Hapco seat is correct for it but that will have to wait.

good job on the seat pans.

they should last a long time

 

make should you warm up the new seat covers so that they fit better

I put extra clip on mine and it helped

I need to pick up some sandable primer for the pans before I go any further with them.  I did clean up the welds with the wire wheel on the grinder on Monday night.  I am getting excited to see the new seat on the 120.

I did not let it dry long enough and now I need to strip off some paint and reprime.  Getting way to excited about getting the new seat on it.

 

Also used the 120 and 7 cart to move some small pavers for the neighbor.  She thought it was a new machine.  :D  :D  :D  :D

Travis

you can make a hot box to dry fresh painted parts

what I did was get a 1" foil face insultion cut it to the size you need or will need

I made mine big enough to place a 47" mower deck in with 1' high sides

the other sheet I cut to fit tight 

I put the painted deck on the second sheet with spacer to hold the deck up

put a heat lamp on the sheet and covered it

and let the heat cure the paint

 

I have also put the deck in the piece with the sides and covered it with heavy clear plastic out in the sun

 

both ways help cure the paint faster
