1)some 80 grit sandpaper, and Cats Eye Gold scag paint would work wonders on the machine.
2)use the cubcadet to tow your 5x8 around with the scag on it. yes, it works, very well actually. they sell a hitch post at lowes called "Hitchin Post" or something similar made just for this
3)slow and steady with the scag until you get used to it. its obviously real wet in the spring, and your gonna tear your yards up if you turn to fast for your abilities.
other than that, everything looks pretty good. looking forward to some work pictures in the spring....
