Started restoring a Simplicity 2012

Looks Beautiful!

Question 1:

What Brand/Color of paint did you choose?

Question 2:

I have a '67 2010 and my BGB and mounting plates are black.

Did they switch to body color on the BGBs & Plates in '68 with the 2012 or are you customizing it?

Keep up the great work!

Doug

My plate and gear box were orange so I kept it that way. As far as paint I,m using rustoleum automotive spray paint and color is Chevy red orange from menards. I probably should have used a spray gun but its my first restore and I'm happy with the results. I'm not making it showroom condition just making it look perrrrty.

How many people forget to put the belt on before bolting up the drive shaft. I do it everytime. Even did it here, at least its was easy to access.

Finally got the dash on, wiring hooked. Before I went any further i hooked up an external gas tank just to make sure the engine came to life. Everyone like my odd exhaust pipe. Don't really know what it gonna sound like when i atually get it started and running around the yard.

Damn you work quick!!! Your making me want to tear mine down before the end of the season!

I'll have tons of questions for you as I have a few "quirks" that I wonder if they are past owner mods or the original "charm"!

I actually don't work quick. The tractor is at my dads and when I am at work he worked on some sandblasting. I wouldn't let him paint, his painting is really bad, Run city

Very nice job. Sweet looking tractor! One thing I noticed and it's because it gave me problems on a 3416. The longer oil drain tube is nice but one the 3416 the tire rubbed on mine and eventually broke the threads out of the pan. So just make sure you have the clearance I wouldn't want you to have problems now after such a nice rebuild.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
