Thanks man

I'm real glad it's all over with.

I'll pay somebody to do that next time, but it was very rewarding to see something I can do with my hands that I have little skill in.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of before and after. I wish I had taken more pics of it before I started, but I didn't really like looking at it.

If you want some advice, I think it would be better to have you and your helper in the same truck. There's less chance for adverse liability of having two vehicles on the road. I'll leave guys on the job, no problem, but unless I work with somebody a long time and really know them, I'd never send them out alone.

Not trying to tell you what to do, but that's just another side of the equation.
Oh allright my dealer only sells some snapper but I like snapper I use to have a OLd commerical 21 that lasted forever it seemed. I I think I would be better off with one truck and a leaf box more now that I think about it anyways, however i would trust my helper enough to drive alone. I have been close friends to him since we were 4 years old.

I used brand XO Rust, which my local hardware store sells. But yes, I brushed and rolled it on. Thanks for the compliments. I don't ever want to do that again, but it's very rewarding to look at what I did.
