New again

I just finished painting my 108, it was disassembled to the frame, every piece separately painted. I still need the IH decal for the rear.
Here are some photos:

Yes, I still have the mule drive and deck to do, the deck needs a little repair, as soon as I find some 1/8 inch plate steel to fix a couple of rust spots I will weld them in and make the deck look as good as the tractor.
BTW, it is not orangy like the photo's, I guess the color balance is off on my camera.

Really nice job on that 108 :!: That is a classy little lawn tractor. Very few of the other makes could come close to the clean lines and look of the IH Cub Cadets. Nice Job :!: :D

Dave, BEAUTIFUL!!!! I had one just like that, but not as perfect! :wink: But we sold it for a snowmobile.. (IT cut the lawn way better than the 129 we now have..) (The gear drive was flawless just like most IH transmissions.)

That looks really nice.

I have been trying to find a cadet to redo all summer. All I can find have plastic hoods :cry:
