My tractor was in a garage where a car caught fire. The heat completely melted my rear bonnet and gauge cluster. Other that the dash, rear lights and switches the machine is completely fine. Wondering if someone will give me the measurements of the rear bonnet so I can just make my own out of sheet metal instead of paying the high price of the plastic one. Thinking of making my own gauge cluster instead of paying $1200 for only the gauges…advice or insight is appreciated.

What sort of homeowner contents insurance coverage do you have?
I carry full replacement value coverage on my home contents, and if that tractor had been in my garage, it would be home content!

Also, the automobile insurance may cover the costs of repairs on the tractor if it caused the fire.

A family member passed away and the homeowners insurance and car insurance had lapsed. The tractor was left to me. So unfortunately there was no coverage.
