Default 1940 Tiger garden tractor

Just went for the first lap around the neighborhood on my new 1940 Tiger. Took all morning to make it back, man these need some gearing changes to speed it up some. I live in Huntington Beach California, not many areas to use a Tiger in but I dig this little monster. Only had to work on it a couple days to get her running good and tighten up a few things. Iam thinking about fabracating a hood for her???

I have a 1954 Tiger with a hood and there is actually a photo of it on the stack in the classifieds. I bought it off the gentleman selling the racks that the Tigers are shown on. I am not positive but yours my not of come out with a hood as I believe it is an earlier model than mine. I can provide some dimensions and better photos' when I get a chance to get it out.
