This is a white outdoor mower with a Tecumseh 18 hp v-twin OHV. I am planning to put a winch on it and i might put a lift on it im gonna put some bigger tires on the front if i can afford it and i have to rewire everything and get a new starter and solenoid and if i have time after that i might throw some paint and a custom bumper on to it.

Here is a list of things to do or put on:
-tires
-lift kit
-fix the play in the steerin
-fix brakes
-solenoid
-starter
-custom intake
-paint
-custom bumpers
-winch
-rewire everything
-new battery

Things to do if i have extra time or money
-lights
-better paint job
-better pipes

Ive gotten quite a bit of work done on the mud mower, the winch is mounted, new seat and seat mounts, belt tensioner upgrades,
better front wheels and tires. It is now painted matte black (pictures will be posted later). i have chopped the fenders off in hopes that i will be able to get the damn rust welded rims off the damned transaxle to put larger tires or modified rims. The seat is exactly the same as the one on my racemower, they are both out of the back of the S10 i used to have. The new starter i ordered is gonna be in on tuesday so i can actually start the damn thing (whats the use of havin the best engine ever if you cant start it??)I have been working on the throttle linkage also but its pretty much just hangin onto the engine till i can get a pedal and some connectors of some sort. Ill try to post pictures as much as possible, but it pretty difficult with a laptop with a half cracked screen.

"I am being told now that the White/Tecumseh team will be retiring from the build-off championship battle due to engine issues. The word is that chevy8988 will be back next year with a completely redesigned engine and drivetrain. Still anyones game with four full months left on the clock for the 2015 ATLTF build-off."
