Hood supports removed for cleaning and paint.
BTW - I got a very nice JD 10 cart for $75 this morning! Gotta get the 120 to go with it.

For $300.00, you're getting both the 140 and 120. You can sell the 140 easily for $500-$600, and the 120 for around $400.00. Can't go wrong with them numbers! You have to make the deal, and if the wife says no, show her the numbers I just listed, and see if that will change her mind!

A friend picked up Valspar yellow paint for the wheels. I hope to paint the inner surfaces this weekend and mount the tires so I can paint the outer surfaces.
Got the deck out and looked it over with a second pair of critial eyes who welds. His observation is what I was afraid of - it rusted very thin many areas. So thin that there is not enough solid metal to weld the new patches to. I am going the strip the good parts (spindles, wheels, springs, etc) from the shell and scrap the rest. I have a lead on two decks to replace it. One is in St Louis but might take some time to get it. It was sold in the 80's as a replacement deck for a 140 and has little use. I have another one that is closer that I will likely pick up too. It is off of a Kohler 316.
Once I have the 120 up and going the '66 110 will be looking for a new home.

Does anyone know the proper black for the grill and mule drive unit?

Several coats of muffler black prettied this up a bit.
Grill finished in Blitz black and don't really care if it is correct because I like the way it looks.
Buff primer and yellow finding their new home.
Paint on the inner surfaces.
