Anyway, looking awesome as always. Can you tell us posers how you get the sharp lines between the banana and the cream? I’ve heard of and used the 1/4 inch green tape before but wondering how it’s actually done. Assuming you paint the piece all one of the colors then mask off and use the other? Do you sand the area at all of the color underneath so the other color will stick to it? If so what grit? Lots of questions but inquiring minds want to know.

Edit: just realized how ironic is it that these are somewhat cub cadet colors. Be honest buddy you're the owner aren't you?
I use 3m blue fine line tape. It make nice lines and isn't super sticky so it won't pull the paint off. I sprayed the white basecoat and let it flash for 30min and then taped it off, then I sprayed on the yellow. Basecoat can sit for 72hrs before sanding is necessary to put on more base or clear.

No, the cars not mine. I'd rather have a 57 Bel Air.

Well as a kid in high school with a '57 blue BelAir convert and 300 hp, I seemed to survive quite nice.
I put my heart and soul into building that car/engine.
Looking back,
wished I could re live it like "Groundhog day"
Best memories of my life.
Dirty air, clean sex, real hot rods and rock & roll music.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
