I did a little prep work on the carcass of the tractor sitting in the barn.
The area where the fuel tank sits (at the very front of the frame) is always a mess when I remove the tank. I decided to use the small amount of Herculiner, DIY truck bed liner, instead of repainting it. The only known substance that dissolves Herculiner is xylene. Pretty tough stuff. I used it on the tractor foot rests. Remarkable stuff. Like rhino-hide in a can.
The battery tray looked terrible, but two coats of Herculiner later and the it looks better than new.
