Default 149 rebuild

Finally got to work on my 149 project. Painted the hood and a few more parts. Hood came out pretty nice. Getting ready to put the light assembly together. I have started the tractor a couple times. Have not recharged the battery so the charging system seems to be working OK. Question to the members that have done this. Do you put decals on hood before installing hood or after installing hood? After 4 years, I hope to finish this project this summer if nothing more happens. Could not have gotten this far with out the help of fellow members. Appreciated so much. Attaching a few pictures. Have a great day.
Bob

I install the decals once the tractor is all together so I can be sure the decal on the dash lines up perfect with the decal on the hood and also incase the hood were to get scratched during installation. This also gives the paint more time to dry, I recommend waiting at least two weeks before installing decals to avoid them bubbling up because of the fumes coming from the paint as it dries.

I, too, wait for decals until everything else is done.

I apply them wet--using a spray bottle of water with a couple drops of dish detergent. Wet the hood and the back of the decal. When you apply, the decal can slide a bit to get it perfectly aligned, and then squeegee out the water with a soft rubber squeegee to adhere the decal to the hood. Let dry overnight.

You can apply them dry by taping them in place with blue painter's tape, lifting the decal up on the "hinge" of tape, remove the backing and smooth out. It's tough to do this without getting small air bubbles under the decal, so that's why I use the wet method.

Thanks SawdustDad for the tip on installing the decals. When I am ready, I will try the water method. Have a great day.

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.
