What all would this take and how would it be done?

This belongs in the body exsterior section, but Jon will move it later. You can build one from sheetmetal or fiberglass. Send me a PM on what your looking to do and I'll tell you how.

Steel will work good... I cut my camaro hood along the body lines (the onese coming from inside the headlights) and then I lifted it 3 inches in the back (not alot but works good cuz of the width) then I added another peice off another camaro hood so I had an overhang over my window... That is at least how you make a cowel hood on a 3rd gen camaro

If you have the patience for it, you could pound out a custom cowl using a sand bag and rubber mallet. Take a look at the Metalshapers.org web site.
