First things first, I have the SAME Murray as Fearless, so can anybody see any way to open it like this tractor here.

Maybe some fenders for the front end, I have an idea for the rear end anyways, just not the front end. Like this one.

Lastly, which I dont have a picture for is my rims/wheels. I dont have a picture at the moment, but ill get one ASAP, Im refering to the front. They rub on the bracket for them, and its eating up the sidewalls, it's gotten so far its eating the rim. I've put a few pipes the fit snuggly in it but they get eaten up, but it keeps the wheels solid. SO maybe ball bearings? I just can find the correct sizes.

hmmmm for the front end maybe cut the hood and add a hinge type deal and bolt the grill down? as for the wheels i would have to see a picture to understand. sounds like the tires are too wide or maybe you need to add spacers? hope this helps!

For the opening hood setup, is your hood and grille separate pieces?

Youd have to modify the setup quite a bit - the grille would need support, id see about a donor MTD for those bars to the dash - the grille is plastic, so id suggest some sort of metal reinforcing for it inside - that way the hinges for the hood can be mounted to it, instead of the grille. The hood might need to be bent out just a bit to clear the grille - its designed to be bolted together, not hinge over it.


For the wheels, id suggest a hub setup or extend the spindles to place the wheels out further ( spacer mounted on the inside to hold wheel out) - if its a faster tractor- id go with a hub/bering setup - bushings will just be torn up and could lock up on you.
