B210 Hoods

Even if it is not stock, paint it up nice and just let everyone look at and ask questions about it. Gives onlookers something to do. Pretty soon you will have half the club researching this version of a hood. In other words, it will become a "conversation piece". I have a few "unique" variations on some of my tractors. Made a few new friends talking about them.

These are old pictures - It was painted almost 5 years ago when I restored my B210. You can see the hood now in my recent post from 12/19/04 titled Follow Up to Front Rim Width. The rolled edge around that oval opening appears to perfect to be done by a prior owner. I'll take some close-ups of it on the top and underside and attach some more photos. Appreciate the feedback :) Rob S

Here's some close-ups, it was hand-done to accomodate this tank. It's made a great beer holder all these years so I figured it was the optional Beer-Holder-Hood but I couldn't find that in the B-series pages so I guess not.... :D
