In reality the best way to care for your lawn is to mulch every time you mow. Also best to get the correct mulching blade to get the maximum benefits. The clippings break down and become nutrients for the lawn. I try to keep the grass at a 3" to 4" to help keep the lawn weeds at bay. A funny store on myself last fall. We have several larger trees in the yard, Maple, Oaks, Sycamore, a Purple Ash, and a Crab Tree. The Cedars drop just a little and it all stays around their base. The leaves were several inches deep and I just kept going back and forth in the yard with the rider mower. Leaves were building up between the mower deck and the chassis and engine. I stopped for a drink of water when I started smelling something like a leaf fire. I was able to grab the garden hose and putout the flames before they destroyed the mower. Melted the air cleaner on the front of the engine and the plastic engine cover has a couple of "caricature " dips on the top from the heat. I would suggest keeping the mower deck clear at all times.
Great looking build. The wheels are period perfect for the early '70's. A note on the mirrors. The easiest way to know which side the mirrors should be mounted. The mirrors are offset to one side of the support arm. The greatest offset would be away from the car. What the designers were trying to do is to give the driver the greatest field of vision away from the sides of the vehicle, so they had the side of the mirror closest to the body would be the closest to the upright support.
Very creative engine and induction systems. With the dark green color you don't see the parting line for the roof to come off. Very nice looking interior. With the yellow frame you can see just how much you channeled the body. I like the wheels and especially the rear tires.
Look real close at the two different engines and see if one has a manual transmission and one a Power glide transmission. While not mentioned in the instructions they did the same thing on the Black Widow kits.
Good to know, as much as I like the show its self his actions are really hard to watch. I'm afraid what happens all to often in the automotive centric programs is that the director/writers want a lot of drama and for someone who watches because they enjoy automobiles in general it just gets frustrated the way they make the actors carry on for no good reason.
