I made this thread to show that you can take something that does not look that good and make it look like new. I also have a couple of broken attachments that I repaired.

The first is a Woods RB60 Blade. I showed pictures of this one in another thread.

These are the only before pictures I have of it.





To clean it up I used a wire wheel on an angle grinder and paint stripper.

After:





Here is my Version 1 imatch.



I used sand paper to remove rust and feather out the scratches.


After: (it already has a battle scar from use)



Version 2 imatch. It was just green and needed to be Orange.



I just scuffed the paint with a scotchbright pad.

After:



Woods LR72 Rake







It was really bad looking a couple years ago, I repainted it Woods burnt orange. I just scuffed the frame work and shot it orange. For the bolts I used galvanized paint, IDK how it will hold up. I brushed the tines gray.

After:









Disk for garden tractor:

I forgot to get a picture of the whole thing before I started.







I had too much weight on it and broke it with the Cub Cadet 2206. I had to straighten and weld the tongue. Straighten one of the axles and build new wood blocks (is it called boxing) for the axles to run in. I cleaned everything thing up with a wire wheel. I am going to get rid of this disk since I have no use for it.

After:

Are you sandblasting? How are you prepping for paint?

Thanks. Everything but the disk was sprayed. The disk was brushed, the but the disk blades were sprayed. I used genuine Kubota paint, the only thing I can find that matches the tractors. The disk, rake tines, and cutting edge on the blade I used rustoleum paint. The blade I used a Devilbis Finsihline to paint it and everything else that was sprayed I used $8 Harbor freight HVLP gun. I like the size of the harbor freight gun for tractor implements and I don't have to clean it up real good.

Nice work. :thumbsup:

Thanks
