Solid would compliment the B-ville look. And no louver sanding....
Got any hood sides from a 37 Chevy truck?
Only 2 Louvers to sand
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.
Hot rod ingenuity at it best!
I can't seem to finish anything from good parts let alone "junk".............................
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
You can do it!
Why do I hear rob Schneider’s voice when you say that?
Chevy hood sides!
Those look pretty good.
Very primitive mock-up hood side, with louvers. I think I like it.
awesome looks. Very talented.
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.
... 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.
That looks bad ass. Do you have a front view?
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.
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.
Here is a pic of the front view. I’m thinking of changing the grill area a little. We will see.
That things badass, i wanna drive it
Me too! I’m hoping to drive it to work every day in the summer.
Go Jim Go!!!
That's almost depressing lol, work- summer I'm ready for summer...
I am thinking of ditching the front grill work, maybe going with a Chrisman brothers front, but with a small air scoop in it.
Would like to see that with a Packard(ish) grill center
