I bought this Mule off a friend for a pretty good deal.

I don't have a lot of good before pics but it was in pretty bad shape.....Full of dirt, rust and faded.

The good thing was it ran really well. It's s 2007 with 700 hours.

I tore it down and gave it a good cleaning. I was able to get all the rust off the bed as well.

I helped a friend of mine spray it with bed liner and had the seats recovered.

I still need new tires, wheels, back fenders, e-brake boot and possibly bed line the front fenders and grill guard(not sure why I didn't do that with the other parts...got lazy)

I think it came out pretty good.

Nicely done! I'll be following your build-a-long as I just picked up the same thing in a 2006 model.

On the seats...did you do them yourself or have someone else do them? I'm in dire need to get mine redone.
Edit: sorry, I read a little closer...you had them done. What did that run you if you don't mind me asking.

I was going to do them myself but I found a guy that said he would do it for $250. I figured it would look better if I had a professional do it especially the seams.

I did take them off and I took apart the front seat, removed all staples and painted the plywood.

Did you use a Rustoleum type bed liner spray to cover the parts? I have seen that they sell one at Walmart..

No, we used two different air spray guns. We used one for the primer/glue and another with a large hopper for the bed liner. The brand was "SpeedLiner"

First coat was the primer/glue stuff (not sure what it was) The second coat was the liner and the third gave it the texture.

My friend had done it a lot before and I just helped.

That's not bad. I just didn't have a clue what it would run. Turned out great. up
