    No armor all at all. It was a showroom model, and had some minor scratches on the hood from the plastic thing that states the price setting on it for a while. So I got some turtle wax polish (swirl remover), and did that, then waxed it. I did this on all the red parts. Since then I use a leaf blower at the end of a mowing / aerating etc session. Then wipe off with a soft cloth.

    IT had an hour meter added after 3 hours, it it now reads 7.8 hours after this past weekend. I changed the oil after 2 hours per the Locally owned Sears store I bought it from. They sell appliances, garden equipemnt, tv and tools. Nice little store in a nice little town. Local owner was top notch, and answered all my questions. When I go back he shows me how to do something on the store model they have.

    14 years later. 2003 Sears DLT 3000 rolls on. probably use 35 - 40 hours a years, so probably getting close to 500 hours. had carb rebuilt twice. burning oil now on hills. tricky to start after sitting a few weeks, but overall been good. trying to keep it going rather than buy new.
