Ok - I caved and painted it.

Does your paint retain the gloss, seems after several months mine is still real pretty but the super gloss has gone away

Yes, the cushion came with the trim necessary for the install.  I also saved the original trim off of both seats that I had.

My paint has retained the gloss well.  The hood, which received better prep (priming, sanding, painting) is glossier than the fender pan and the rest of the tractor.

Got some water drops on the pan while working on Saturday so I wet sanded it again but used 600 grit.

Other than one small piece of hair it is done and good enough for a worker.  I put it in the sun for two hours and all is well.  I hope to install the cushion tomorrow as the weatherman says we will be in the 80's so the cushion should be flexible.

if it did not warm up so that it stretches - you can use a hair dryer, to warm it up so that it stretches for you

Wrestled the cushion into place. Glad I put a towel on the workbench.  I have waited 2 years to get this wrapped up.  Now the deck looks really bad.

The 110 is looking quite sad, especially next to the 120. :watch_over_fence:

Just mowed half of the back yard and the seat is great.  The other seat is a bit more contoured to the lower back but this one looks great, is soft, and quite comfortable.
