Little sneak peek with it on, I'll post more picks in a few days after I do the lettering on the grass board and when weather is nicer,

Looks good man. I personally love the rustoleum clear, I've used it on several parts on my trucks still holding up over the years.

Well this is it. Went with year and farmall cub on board since I usually park in front of house a lot and I always get asked what year she is, originaly I did lettering in red, but didn't really stand out, so went with black. But I might change it up some more.
Bracket that mounts to face of board that I assume is ment to hold board from splitting, I mounted to the back, to keep it clean looking. Will be flipping rear wheels back around probably next week, had them temporally turned out so I could play with plow, depth lever needed the clearance between fender when I had it on, guessing tires are wider than normal. Then might run sickle in field next month to scuff it up a bit :) (I'll post pics of that)

This is the angle I keep the mower at when parked out front, Lettering really stands out with sun on it. I was kind of thinking of the old cub ads when I decided the font. Also I think I'm going to get a section of drainage pipe and split it in the middle and put it over the teeth for safety purposes when not in use, unless someone has a better way that they use they could share.... Thanks

:Dito: Nice job on the lettering.
A long, narrow, folded piece of hardware cloth will also protect the sections but allow for more visibility of them.

Hi,
The mower looks really good in your pics. :)
If you want to make something, you could make the guard that goes under the flywheel on the mower.
It is in the Cub 22 mower owner's manual. It is held on with 2 bolts, they are 3/8" carriage bolts that go in from the front, and face rearward. They are about 1 1/4" long overall, with lock washers under the nuts.
The holes in the guard are square, so probably have to file those, with a square file, after drilling round holes. The rear of the guard goes on the front side of the bracket sticking down.

Here are measurements, mine is 8 1/2" wide, the rear is 3 5/8" high, the bottom is 3 5/8" long, the front is 5 3/8" long. The metal is .145" thick.
Below are pics from TM Tractor. :)

Actually Glen, thank you for pointing that out to me, I went out and checked, have the part and totally forgot about it, have it mixed in with the spare parts... I'll get that stripped down and installed... Thanks

Saw a Cub this weekend at a show with a piece of plexiglass about 9" wide attached to the guards and sticking an inch or two out in front of the points. I didn't take a picture of it but remember thinking that it looked better than a lot of guards I see.

The drain pipe is functional but to me it always looks like you speared the downspout. :lol:
