Hi all got started on the mower attachment. Whilst starting to rub down the hood I found the remains of the original transfer so I set to on rubbing down and doing my best to repaint the transfer so I can get it reproduced and it did nt come up to bad for me.

Yep, it won't look as good as yours though, I'm not entirely happy with the paintwork yet...

looking good Steve. Lucky with the transfer
 
Surely it would have been easier to remove the wheels & gearbox from the deck before you pained itConfused

There is a little method in my madness chris I wanted to tidy it up for kingsfold as not happy taking it out in its present condition .I also want to get a copy of transfer done from titch . But at least I know the gearbox is good and no apparent rot in the lower drive . So have no fear during the winter the complete mark one will be stripped restored and running with mower for the new year .
