That's cool Michelle. Amazing what you can do with a camera.
Would love to see a bit more of that puppy.

It's just a hood sitting on a bare chassis. Thought it looked pretty cool. Certainly gives me an idea... now to convince Adam to stop leaving all his tractors "original"! (:

It would be pretty hard to get an engine under that hood. LOL Does look kinda neat!

I think it would be pretty cool to build a rat rod tractor. Adam should just be happy you are out in the garage tinkering :D

How about one of those tiny Power Products engine [2 stroke] mounted inverted, UNDER the frame? Then the hood could be that low. I like it already!!!

Nice camera shot. Thanks for posting and sharing. The fabricators among us are probably already designing some kind of rear engine adaptation.

Grabs your attention for sure. Now you have me wondering, how low will it go? :confuse:

Nice low to the ground look. Now put on a sport bike seat and a set of handlebars under the frame so you can lean way over and grab them!

If you invert the front axel, how much ground clearance would you have left? If that wouldnt work, make a straight axel. Drop it some anyways.
