This was my project last summer. Before I get to the modifications I want to tell the story of how I acquired the tractor and the origin of the name “The Hunk”.  

Well here goes. I bought it from a guy on Facebook marketplace, however I do not have a Facebook account (this is where it gets funny).  I asked my wife to message the guy with her Facebook and her response was something along the lines of “you don’t need another tractor”...I disagreed.  So I called my grandpop who has a Facebook and asked him to message the guy, which he did.  When I told my wife what I did and that I was going to look at it the next day she was less then happy, but I still proceeded to go and buy the tractor.  When I got it home she asked (With an angry tone) what I was going to do with another HUNK of junk, so to be even more spiteful I gave the word hunk a positive spin. And that is the story of The Hunk.

So now hunk has taken on a whole new meaning because it's a good looking tractor!  Lol. Love that blue,  looks similar to Viper Blue pearlcoat! I've been planning diamond plate running boards on my Mud Duck too (once I build the frames for them), looks good and provides gription!

I chose the blue to accent the blue Duromax engine. I was able to find a near match at my local Ace hardware in a rustoleum gloss deep blue. I’m very happy with how it turned out.
