Got some more done this weekend. Fabricated some nerf bars Friday night and then tossed them and started over Saturday morning. Got the main parts made.





They are not welded to the frame yet. Still have to make some more supports. Put them 1" in from the sidewalls.

Nerf Bars look nice. Are you going to do deck halves too? I decided to go with nerf bars from BMI because once I bought the metal and had it bent I'd have as much in them as the BMI one's cost. I also bought a BMI front bumper to put on but I'm not sure how I'm going to do that yet as it won't fit over my hood as the L series Deere hoods are wider than the Scotts / Sabre hoods. Also If you plan to use a front bumper do you plan to keep the factory hood hinge or go with Dzus fasteners to hold the hood on?

Its looking really good Glenn, coming along pretty fast too.
Justin, I usually have to spread the front bumpers a lot to make them fit around the hood, I use a little heat on them. Because everything is tight for room the Dzus fasteners are a light, simple and cheap way of mounting the hood.
I was going to try to put a deck on my new outlaw machine this year as well, trying to make it look like as much of a lawnmower as I can.

Justin, I plan on making this hood lift off. The front hinge points are already gone off the frame and with the cutting of the hood to clear the front axle I will lose all the supports there anyway. Front bumper is going to intregal to the frame so no way to tilt the hood. And, yes I am going to put decks on also. Didn't like how high my knees were when I sit in it so had to find some room. Ended up lowering the front of the foot boards. Made a huge difference.





Makes the footboards level with no kickup. Much more comfortable now.

Justin, I got it off my shelf. LOL  I have no idea where it came from, but it worked. Rooster and GRUBDIGGER may be right.

I noticed it when you first posted it. It is the same tank that came off my mower, I have 3 or 4 of them.

I'm trying to order DZUS fasteners for my hood but there are a ton of different ones. What works best on the plastic hoods like the deere I have? It is about 1/8 thick or a little less. I have no idea what size and length to get.

i believe the 5/8 DZUS will work justin depending on how this of material you use to mount the spring dont need much but i would reccomend the little premade spring plates that moroso sells and make brackets to hold them but really if they arent just right you can bend the spring to set the tension so really you could get just about any length you want
There's somethin' in the works...

Do yourself a favor and if you use the dzus tabs and they are in a tight spot, use the butterfly ones. It will make your life a lot simplier in a rush.
