LOL! A true diehard would set it aside for winter, buy another, and never miss a beat mowing.

But then, there's always the stark reality of budgets, wives, building permits, etc.

On my big ten i welded it on the inside, and added gussets to reinforce it. Can tell it was ever broken from the outside.

      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!😁
