Haven't updated this thread for a while. Did some work in October of last year before putting this project away for the winter.

The bottom of the battery compartment was heavily pitting due to rust, so used some Rust-oleum Rubberized Undercoating Spray. Think it turned out good. Will also hold the battery in place while in use. Got the steering column rebuilt and installed.

Getting ready to pull this project out of the shed where it's been all winter, move it inside the garage and finish it up.

Got a Spring Sale flyer from Northern Tool in the mail about a month ago. One of the sale items was a John Deere tractor seat. Above the seat it read: "ALL TRACTOR SEATS 20% OFF". I need two seats, so thought this would be a good time to buy replacements. Went online to find the internet "Sale" price wasn't 20%, but more like 5% off (reg $79.99 on sale for $75.99). I hit the chat button and texted back and forth about the sale. Bottom line: the 20% Spring Sale was just for in-stock merchandise. Oh, ok.

Took another look at the sale flyer. Hmmm. Doesn't say anything anywhere about in-stock merchandise... :?

Drove to Northern Tool retail store near my work. Asked to speak to the manager. Showed him the Spring Sale flyer and the 20% off all tractor seats ad. I encouraged him to please find on the flyer where these sale prices only applied to in-stock merchandise. He couldn't. I said, "I'll take two." 8)

Oh, the Spring Sale flyer also had a coupon to get $20 off anything over $100. Had 'em shipped to their store for free. Picked them up last week. Paid just over $50 apiece including tax to have them sitting in my garage. :mrgreen:

This 782 had a busted dash corner when I bought it. Got the dash repaired. I had taken pics along the way, but they were accidently deleted.
002.jpg

Basic procedure: Had another 782 with upper right corner of dash intact. Pulled good dash and used non-shrinking modeling clay purchased at Hobby Lobby to form a mold. Let dry then placed molded clay in damaged corner of other 782 dash. Used a fiberglass repair kit from Walmart to build up layers in the corner. Removed clay and finished up with additional fiberglass and JB Weld then sanded smooth. Had a piece of plexiglass that I cut to form the lip at the outside corner.
Used VHT Vinyl Dye from O'Reilly's thinking it would penetrate the plastic with black dye rather than sit on the surface like paint. Time will tell. Used a Krylon silver leaf pen from Hobby Lobby to highlight the raised lettering and emblems. Turned out pretty good.

Sprayed it with Dupli-Color (O'Reilly's) clear engine enamel. Should be set. :)

I've used florist's styrofoam or similar material that's easy to shape for constructing a mold. A plastic shopping bag over the mold will keep the FG/resin from sticking to it so removal is a lot easier and more complete without distortion to the newly applied FG.

I'm just amazed at the skill it took to do that work while taking a photo at the same time! :D

Very nice work Stanton. I'm definitely taking notes about the dash repair and re-paint. I want to get my CC 1772 Diesel put back together and painted, but gosh finding an original hood has been about a 5 year task of weekly eBay/internet searches.

Had to make some gaskets for the taillights.

Got the wiring finished. I like taking the color-coded plastic off the end terminals and use shrink tubing. Just think it looks better.

Getting a new fuel shutoff valve in later this week, so will hook that up in the next week or so and see if this thing can move on it's own power.

Thanks for the compliments. Plan to get this thing running/moving, then pull the wheels and redo them. Jury's still out on whether to get tires or not. May wait 'til I've used it for a while. It did come with a 50C mower deck that needs a complete redo.
