I have a small speedex I pieced together from scrounged parts. with the wrong hood, but I love that little thing, it's was a lot of fun to build. (I'll post pictures later - I'm at work)

anyway, I have the opportunity to get a S24... cheap. it has a blown trasns, but it just so happens I have an extra sitt'n in the barn.

the tractor is rough, and not all original or all there... the question is; would it be sacrilegious to paint it a different color? this will be a working tractor, I need a brushhog. My plan is a sicle bar, or maybe a deck with duels and wide fronts to mow around the ponds... I'll post pics if this all comes together, I was just trying to get some ideas... I'd appreciate anything you have to tell me... thanks

:wave: MSG Hall Welcome to GTTalk! Great to have you with us!

the question is; would it be sacrilegious to paint it a different color?


I would say that it's yours, paint it however it suits you! People paint their tractors different than original colors for many reasons. Whatever your reason is, I'm sure it's a good one.

...the tractor is rough, and not all original or all there...


We're all about saving the ones we can, and most of us use at least a couple of ours for everyday chores around the house or property! I think the best way to preserve the heritage of our machines is to show the world what they're capable of!

Thanks for signing up! Hope to see some pictures of your stuff soon!

I think you will find pretty open minded members here. Sure some would rather see them restored to original but for the most part we also understand that it is your tractor and your money and you have every right to do what you want with it. These tractors were originally built to be used. Welcome to GTtalk.
