My Cub Cadet has the plastic engine covers, hood and grill. The PO fixed the side covers by running 1/4" bolts through the snap-together points at the hood and side cover junction, etc.
However, the grill frame is broken at the bottom, and the whole thing will (fairly soon) break off and leave me with the "rat rod" look for my GT. It will also leave the engine exposed to the weather, etc.
Has anyone replaced these items with a hood, panels, grill, etc. from another machine? I'm willing to do that, even with "some fabrication and assembly required". I just don't know what is close...
I wonder if something from the 682/782/882 series or the 1800 series would work??? Any advice would be appreciated.
I've attached a picture of a similar machine to my CC1862.
