Toro 5800 radiator access 2015

I noticed on our Toro 5800 sprayer has a panel that was originally spot welded in place where the radiator is . Not a real big problem for me to clean the rad from the under side on the lift . But made more sense to chisel out the spot welds and get a piano hinge from the hardware store . I welded one side on the flip up panel through the holes . the other end was pop riveted to seat panel . No our irrigation tech can blow it out easily after use .

Looks ok

Took a while to figure out a simple solution to keep panel in place

Ended up sliding a washer under this tab I made and used a nylock nut to give it a little tension .
Works great .
