I bought this MTD rider almost 9 years ago. It's been a faithful and very reliable mower with little maintnence required over the years. Living on the Texas / Mexico border, it gets use 52 weeks per year. I store it in the dirt floor barn and it was beginning to show some rust, mostly under the rubber foot mats. I mowed everything late last week and the following day I began taking it apart to clean up the rust and repaint as needed. I still have the deck out and plan to clean it up and paint it too, but for now I have to re-install it and mow again! Also plan to paint the wheels white to go along with the Ford scheme. So it was a Huskee (I masked off the labels) and now it's sort of a Ford. I reckon I'll name it the Fordskee since it's probably a one of a kind. Laugh if you want, I've always been a firm believer in "if you own it, do what you want with it".
This is what it looked like on Sunday
Pan in primer after some serious sanding and wire brush work. Painted top and bottom.
The almost finsished product. Have not decided what color to paint the mower deck yet, any suggestions? Wheels will be the same white as the hood and seat back.
