I have been slowly accumulating the few missing parts for my 1969 110 Red Patio as I find them. I picked up a patio white pto cover I was missing and now need a red seat (hard as heck to find) and some of the John Deere chrome hubcaps. 12" ones for the rear seem to be out there but having a hard time finding any 8". Hopefully someone has these things. Mine is the first year white engine and even has a hydraulic lift so I really want to do a nice original restoration.

Might have to die a regular seat to get color. Orig color seats go for $1000 or even more, specially if found NOS. Real Crazy. Think most guy's now just coloring something else, not sure if need a yellow to start or can do black??

It isn't just the color of the vinyl. The patio series seats also had a special finish on the backside of the seat.

For show purposes since it will be sat on my plan was to dye a cover for the seat so it looks authentic but not ruining an original seat hauling and riding it at shows as I hear most that are left are very brittle. Would just be fun to have one day to make it absolutely authentic. I did manage to find a patio white pto cover and rear hubcaps just need the 8" fronts and if anyone happens to stumble over a red seat (probably as likely to win the lottery but a man's gotta dream!)
