Good for you if it runs good great ! Why buy new it's all about money not what you spend BUT what you keep in your pocket.

You should post some pics after you paint it up! I'm sure it will look almost like a new mower. I'm not that handy myself, so I would never buy something like that. lol

I guess if it runs okay, thats what really matters. But to me, one that is that age and in that condition might not be the most reliable mower. If you are mechanically inclined you probably are in pretty good shape but if not I think this will always be something that you will dump money into.

You can always make a turd look pretty but in the end it will always be a turd.
