    Solid would compliment the B-ville look. And no louver sanding....

  2. Got any hood sides from a 37 Chevy truck?
    Only 2 Louvers to sand :D:p

    I’m wondering if smooth sides will trap to much heat. I want to drive this thing around, and there’s not a lot of room for a radiator.

    Well, I’m going with the louvers,as much as I hate them, they are junk laying in the yard and that fits the build.

    I can't seem to finish anything from good parts let alone "junk".............................
     
  7. Some guys take a pile of perfectly good parts, then toss a bunch of new stuff in the mix and cannot build themselves anything but “JUNK”

    Wildman Sibley here does things a little different

    Why do I hear rob Schneider’s voice when you say that?

    412E4A25-D518-46C8-A8EB-4DD3FDBEF07F.jpeg Very primitive mock-up hood side, with louvers. I think I like it.

  14. Jim, not only do you have talent, but you also have imagination. I appreciate your ability to make silk purse out of many pigs ears.
     
  15. ... I like Jim Sibley's definitions of "primitive".

    Hood cut & fitted with body line.

    Mine would be cardboard with Sharpie stains on my face & fingers.

    Move grill up to line up with body line.

    Aboner, that’s exactly what I thought. I’m going to raise the grill line to match the top of the side vents.
     
  20. Hey Jim,
    How the hell are you getting him in there?

    Car looks like a bad ass
    That particular louver set up ain’t doing it for me though. Thought you were doing a 35 truck hood ? Those look too much like shutters or gym lockers.

    Sorry, my bad, 1936 ford truck hood sides, not 1935. Like I said they were just junk laying on the ground in my back yard.

    1935 truck would be nice, with the swoopy louvers, but I think they are to tall, and these were free, and in my pile already.

    07EC5F88-F8C0-46F1-A7EB-A9F59CD6BE4F.jpeg I am thinking of ditching the front grill work, maybe going with a Chrisman brothers front, but with a small air scoop in it.
