    Ok so we all know the elfman swears by the stuff so I'm here helping truck 21 get a couple painted. This paint is great either rattle can or from a spray gun it produces a great shine. However if your going to use a paint gun do not mix it the way the can says!! I mixed the green at a 4:1:1, four parts paint, one part reducer,an one part hardener. If you were to mix it there way you might as well put food coloring in water. An the rattle cans an gallons are a dead match which will help if touch ups are needed. I'll post the comparison picture of them side by side.

    This is what I've gotten it'll need a little work the back edge has the typical push in and bend from backing into stuff. The foot boards have some rust. It's not as bad as the Blacksheep's was when it came home.

    That's doable Kyle however it is not correct for 1975, but maybe you knew that.

    Nope I'm a little ignorant and not ashamed to say 200 series are still a learning curve for me. What's different on them?

    Maybe I'll end up trying to repair the old one.

    Yes I sent you a reply. Thank
    You very much. Looks like they do not use the cheap black plastic shifter cover on the 200 either. Looks like it may be a tough one to replace. May be some metal work involved and repair the old one.

    No it does not get a cover, and the 75/76 uses a rubber mount under the deck whereas the 77 and up doesn't.
    I have the deck that belongs with the tractor if you are going to fix one maybe you want to do the original.
