I have an older scag 32" It was my first mower in this bizz and im glad I bought it. I took it in the day before yesterday for repairs. The dealer has scag paint and I will also ask him these questions, but why not get several more tips from you guys. This mower looks bad I had a customer come out one time and ask me if it were a lawnmower. Its missing a belt cover searched eveywhere, but only have found ones for 36"s and those wont fit. I can buy one new for $150, but probably wont thats just to much. I know the dealer has to make his $50 but thats just too much. Ill have this mower back in two weeks and I need tips on how to paint it. Should I use spray or brush. I dont plan on detailing to the max, but decent should I just try to mask off what I can and go for it. My last question is what should I use to degrease and should I use some kind of primer. As soon as can afford it this mower will be a backup to an Exmark Viking 32"
