Good job nice. Where did you get that fire extinguisher mount or did you make it?

Congratulations!!!! You are to be commended for your passion in doing this project, as well as the skill in order to make it all happen. Was getting the donor machine the one thing instrumental in moving the project along, and making it possible? Yes, all those parts could have been bought across the counter. But, it may have made the entire project financially unreasonable.

Or, was that another single happening, or acquisition, that was very important?

I'm sure you enjoy the machine now even more than before the fire. Happy mowing!

Thanks Guys. Roger, finding the donor machine made it happen sooner. As you say, it would not have made sense to do the rebuild buying all new parts at retail across the counter. Would've been cheaper to just buy a new mower and part out what was left to recover some of the cost of the new mower. That was never my plan, however. I would've scoured ebay, craigslist, etc for replacement parts and it would've taken a lot longer that way but still be possible. Time was never a factor. I was prepared to work on this literally for years.
