I have done 2 of my model trains that I take to shows up in custom paint/decals for Autism Awareness and thought it was time to do some custom touches to a GT since I attend many shows/plowing events. The tractor will be my newly aquired 212 with hyd lift. The original green hood will be retained for normal mowing duties. I am looking for a second hood in really good shape, ie no damage to the fiberglass but the paint can be cruddy. The plan will to have it wrapped in a decal with the rainbow puzzle pieces and Autism Awareness on both sides above where the normal hood decals go. I would reinstall new hood correct hood decals once the wrap is done. If anybody here does this custom decal/vehicle wrapping, that would be awsome. I might also do up some "magnet" decals to put on the rear of the seat pan. I would put the hood on for any special events I attend. More info to follow. Mike

That's a great idea to have a second hood! You could have as many hoods and causes as you wish.

Well, I dont want to risk the special hood when I mow as I tend to get the nose into bushes ect. Right now I am trying to locate a second hood for a cheap price. I do this for the kids and the adults like myself, you never grow out of it, maybe cope better, but your always autistic. I have days where I pass more as high functioning autistic than someone with Asperger's. But either way, both are under the ASD diagnosis. I am ASD level 1.5 to 2 depending on the day, atleast that is what my therapist tells me. I think it will be really sharp and I haven't seen anything like it yet. I have seen a few pink tractors for breast cancer over the years. Mike

I've read a couple of books written from the view point of the main character who has Asbergers. I found them to be very interesting/ unique individuals..
