ever cut/ polish a lawn tractor?

I did mine a little earlier today.. just got looking at it and felt like doing it. it was really oxidized to the point of where it did not shine at all... I cut the oxidization with 2000 grit then rubbed in some scratch remover ( GTSA 25. it's a light compound. I have no idea where I got it ).. then it started to shine. finished it off with some KIT caranuba wax and it looks just about new

I am into the small tractors........belong to a few forums. Some of these guys are as nuts as us hot rodders........

To me, if they are running good and working good, a bit "O" rust won't hurt.......Guess I am a rat rodder tractor guy......

Wow that Massey Ferguson brings back memories. When we moved to the farm when I was 9 it was my job to mow the lawn with one my dad bought. The MF became my ride. I would drive down the gravel roads to the truck stop to buy junk food. It wasn't fast but it was fun.

One day the goats ate the seat so I had to use an old sofa cushion.

My grandfather has a '73 Cub Cadet 100.. friend of the family ( used to be my neighbor also ) bought it new, my grandfather bought it off him last year..


I only did this to see if I could save the paint.. the tractors not doing so good anymore mechanically having sloppy steering, a rigged up exhaust ( replacement muffler would have been $150 ) and it don't charge like it used to. it might last a few more years but it's past it's prime...
