I've had this tractor for about 2 years now. Its went through a few different transformations.

First build:
Mildly built briggs 8hp
locked rear
5in front pulley, 7 1/2 rear
18in rear tires
hand throttle
welded front end
pull start
upgraded steering

Second build:
22in rear tires
18in front tires
custom made clutch
8in front pulley
hood

I ran into a few problems with this phase. One being that the old 8hp just didnt have the power to turn the big tires. Another being that the clutch I made was great at holding the belt tight, but never really disengaged fully. That lead to hard shifting and stalling.

Third and hopefully the last build:
18in rear mud tires
stock fronts
stock clutch put back on
kawasaki 9hp
3 1/2 front pulley
wiring harness put back in
custom exhaust
front bumper
rear rack
traditional throttle put back on

Still to come:
snorkle
hood rack
winch

I cant remember exactly. I think I used a total of 3 cans on the whole tractor. But i always have to touch it up every couple months.

I use Painters Touch paint. It goes on really dark so I only usually need one or two coats. Thats the black paint I use. I think they had it in a similar green.
