Sovereign with fresh paint

Recommended Posts


Hello, I got this Sovereign in 2011  with blown triad.  I repowered it with a Briggs 16 hp  vanguard twin, that i documented before . The tractor had sat outside unused , for 5 yrs before I got it  .

I tried rubbing compound  , lite sanding  & power buffing  , But the paint still looked fade  so I recently  repainted the  Hood fenders and running boards . I taped off the decals since they looked good 

I am happy with how it turned out. 

Thanks Ken in Mi

Looks great, you got lucky that the decals were that intact considering it was outside. Maybe you can cut some vinyl decals or something to put on the seat pan so the springs don't rub the paint off

Hello, So you noticed my shop towel, protecting the paint?  The simplicity decal on the back was new,  and I applied it  and The (P) didn't stick!!   so it  went on crooked LOL


Thanks for the comments

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
