    Update

    started making the hood, using aluminum.

    I’ll bring the sides and top to my pal @this old hot rod shop to louver it.

    Jumped on the drives side panel, I had to make a cut out for the pitman arm...think I’ll do a blister later.

    Hoods fitted, DZUS fasteners installed, latches installed and some mock up louvers.

    I used .090 aluminum for the hood, I would normally use .048 but messed up when buying it, so I just used it.
    It was a real pain in the ass to bend and roll

    The louver press kind of removed the shape from the hood so I had to re bend it as best I could....I think it looks pretty rad. 3F5624C3-726B-4C9B-ADC5-CD5036E113ED.jpeg CEBB5991-A130-4292-B520-BED9F4DA4352.jpeg 1FC9CE82-0C5E-44D6-8CC9-331DF3C75DC5.jpeg E212347C-67A4-4E31-AD13-90BD14641D36.jpeg
