my suburban redo

here are a few pics of my sears suburban that i picked up this summer. a little info about it:
i bought the tractor, 3 point hitch, front blade, rear blade, and manuals for 250 bucks. the tractor ran, but need some tlc.
i stripped it down to the frame, painted all the pieces with ppg base coat/clear coat (i do bodywork for a living), replaced brake pad, all new fuel lines and filter, plug, clutch spring upgrade, and countless other things! now i am in the process of assembly. all in all, it is turning out pretty good.
i did not paint the transaxle, because i am going to replace it. i will be painting the wheels this weekend.
i still have some work to do, but it is coming along nice. it does fire up and run good. i had the wheels on it and it does move. the clutch spring upgrade is nice!!
anyway, hope you all like this. this site is where i got all of my info for this tractor! before i bought this tractor, i didnt even know that sears made a tractor in the 1960's!!!(no lie).
