Two of my tractors have no hood/grille on them and I want an idea to make a couple hoods for them without having to buy them or wait for the freebies again, I have plenty of scrap iron but dont want it to look crappy, anyone have pics of there homemade hoods?

I made my own hood out of an aluminum street sign. In my case I didn't really make a grill. You could make a grill by outlining the shape you want with either pipe or angle iron/whatever you have, then either put screen across the inside or weld bars across the front. Or some people weld a cage of pipe around the engine which looks kind of neat. Maybe something rounded might be different. Hood scoop perhaps.
