Looks great!  It's a mud mower, it doesn't have to be a perfect paint job.

since this hood as turned out so well i think when im doing my touch ups on it im also going to take my fenders off and give them a similar job, but less acruate, just stars and stripes that look like they wold meet in the space of the old shifter making a V on the fenders. i think it wold go with the hood really well.

not shure weather to keep the stars the same size, or use really big stars (more work) and have 3-5 per stripe

Nice work on the fenders.

You've brought up the points as to why I hate painting.  Especially in the winter.  If I were you I'd invest in another pop up shelter or build a shed from pallets and tarps.

cool I had the same tractor not too long ago, it was a great mowing machine. The plastic hood was weak, but everything else was pretty nice.. People talk crap on the black deck version but I had no issues with it.

this one is mostly for double cross ranch, i know it aint an accurate speed test. but in this video im still being what i call gentle on the motor and on the second pass i start moving faster than traffic.

some day i will buy a GPS so i can measure the speed for real, when that time comes i might even let my motor run over governor for 5-10 seconds witch i dont think i have done yet on this motor.(i was alot harder on my 18hp oppy because it was the least impressive of my 3 oppys, i did more than floor it for a second or two.)

That is quite fast, but I can't believe that you are getting 40+ MPH on just above a 1-1 ratio.  CarsandCameras had to have a 1-3 ratio to get it to go that fast.

Well, if you have a friend with a smartphone, you can just download one of many free speedometer apps and find out.
