Cub Cadet 782 Mini-Makeover

Postby Stanton » Mon Nov 12, 2012 7:56 am

Bought a replacement grille at Cub-Arama and made a top hood ornament. The foot tread is is a rubber 12"x12" self-adhesive pad from Harbor Freight. Replaced the front tires, painted the hood, side panels, fenders and muledrive/deck. Bought and applied new decals. Seat has a small tear that needs to be fixed. Probably going to sell it (next Spring).

Lookin real good. I still remember when the red x82 series came out new, and my dad had a showroom full of them. I used to spend my Saturdays taking all of the tractors out of the showroom and "re-arranging" them for dad. Those red ones really stuck in my mind. Think I was in 4th grade.

Neat! I really like the red '82s. As you can tell in my sig line all Cub Cadet's should look like this!

I would love to own a 782 one day....

If I showed you a close-up pic, you'd see that I was not able to get the dent out totally. The major dent was removed by taking the hub cap out, laying it face down on my lap, and using my thumbs to pop it back out. The metal is very light gauge and can dent easily. Taking the major dent out helped with the overall appearance.

Hope this answers your question.

Sweet! I have one too, and I am working on a few things with it. They are really nice tractors and you did a good job on the make over. I am planning on putting a 450 snow blower on mine hopefully next year.
