first time grille and hood have been back on in 12 yrs my buddies want me to clear it as is. Finished for me will be all satin black,kind of like the sheen on the hood, with some red pinstriping. Oh yeah, and A/C! [IMG][/IMG]

Fan shroud

Made some vent holes in shroud. It was running up to 200 degrees cruising at 70 mph at approx. 2400 rpms. This modification should help at speed

Update: same speed and rpm, but after the vents with rubber flaps were added, it stayed about 185! lesson learned
