Hood and Grill are DONE!

Recommended Posts

Got the hood all welded up yesterday, grill panels cut out & painted. Got it all together today.  I'm am happy with the way it turned out! And I used steel that I had on hand, so no further layout of money! :)
Here is the old grill, beat up, bent side on the hood, hole in the grill for the muffler. I put a side outlet muffler on it.

New grill, same angle, straightened the side the best I could.  I went with the large expanded steel on the outside, and a small expanded flat steel on the inside. Welded at the bottom, zip ties on top and 2 in the center.

I REALLY like the looks of the flat front grill.

And am I the only one who, when working on an already scratched up hood, puts a plush towel under it so it doesn't get scratched more? sm00

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
