It's basically perfect. If maybe get the front tires away from the hood a little it doesn't look right. But whatever you like!

Tman suggested to do this on purpose, tho. Before you let it rust, either tape down a motif on the hood, like a tiger or whatever floats your boat. Then cut the picture "tiger" like trace it. Then shove it out in the rain. Or dip it in saltwater. Then let it rust for a month or two. Then peel of the remains from the picture "tiger". Then clear coat it. Then you would have a rusted painting on your hood, or mower.

Ya! You'd want to sand, or even better, sand blast the tractor first.

Yeah. What kind of exhaust do you think? I like big side pipes, but I saw this thru the hood that's cool too.
