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:

Nice Dave! Are you doing the deck as well?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

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.

Dave:

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.)

Dave when it was new it probably didn't look that good. Super job.

That looks really nice.

I have been trying to find a cadet to redo all summer. All I can find have plastic hoods :cry:
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.
