That one still hinges on the front, and opens to the front.  On the other ones, we bolted the grill to the frame, then attached a hinge at the rear, so it opens to the rear.  On yours, you would have to bolt grille, hinge at rear, then cut or unbolt the hood from the grille.

Or you could leave the roll over bar off.  It is there for two reasons, one is for rollover, other is for pushing another tractor, it overlaps the rear bumpers, which are higher than the front bumpers.

It is also very handy for pulling the tractor out by hand, or picking it up.

couldn't you also pin the hood, like a race car, to lift straight off once the keys were pulled? I may be doing that on the current build.... seems it'd work good

For my craftsman I made my bumper low enough that my hood could still piviot. It barely misses my bumper.

I haven't gotten around to cleanup/paint yet, but here's mine. Kept the factory latch in the back, and pinned the front to the hoop.Murray select bumper ideas  Bumper10
