Hey guys,

Just thought I would post some pics of my progress on the 67 Suburban 10. This is my first time working on a garden tractor besides oil changes and tune ups on the craftsman, so I'll probably make a lot of mistakes. I don't want to call it a restoration, as I am not doing a frame off, just trying to take the majority of visible metal down and give it a nice paint job. I found the problem with the motor was a stuck Valve, I was to try to repair it quickly and getting it running, but then I caught GT-80 selling a good running HH120 for 75, so had to jump on it. I rebuilt part of the starter to try to get the HH100 running, so I know the solenoid/starter work. Just gotta finish the spot sanding, move a fender from that ST-16 over to the Suburban 10, and if the carburetor and transaxle are good, then we are in business!

I'm sure its all amatuer stuff to you old pros, but for a first timer this is imtimidating!

Special thanks to GT-80 for all his advice on the phone and suggestions!

Hey it loosk good so far! Just don't leave that metal bare for long! Moist air will cause it to flash rust.

Hugh- actually, probably a better chance of me swinging by your area chasing down attachments haha. I am trying to justify a reason to go down to new haven and buy that rear grader blade from that guy on craigslist.

Definitely going white and orange. That and the blue they used on the supers were my favorite paint jobs. I will be restoring my rototiller with the same colors so they match. Not quite the tow behind I want, but got him down to 17 bucks on the side of the road, couldnt resist.

Best advice I could give you is to remember that paint doesn't cover up stuff.It only makes it jump out at you,dents look worst,scraches look deeper,etc.So do as good prep as you can and it will turn out fine.:trink40:
