Heres my Hot Rod Mower that I mow with. It is a 1988 MTD, 18hp briggs opposed twin II, 5 speed suicide shift, upgraded lights and 46'' tri blade deck. Its mostly stock other then the paint, custom push bar and moon hub caps. I bought it for $100 off of CL and all it needed was a coil. The previous owner took care of it and it has never see rain. Its a true work horse and it is used daily ether pulling/pushing some thing or mowing. Of course it has taken a toll on the paint but then again its not a trailer queen. Lol Heres it from start till now.

How it looked the day I got it

Great paint! What's the lug wrench tucked into the front bumper for?

I used masking tape and drew out the flames then used a razer blade to cut it out.

Thanks
