12-27-2009 12:26 AM Bead Roller Build
I need to "tip" (bend) the bottom edge of the front panel in at the bottom before I can join it to the two fenders.

I need a bead roller to do this, I had to build one.
I could have bought a cheap one and added a motor to it but I like all the whistles and bells.
I decided to build a "deep throat" bead roller as you never know when that extra space could come in handy.

Decided to give the hood a more "forward" look.
I think it will look alot better this way.

12-20-2009 05:26 PM More Hood Mockup
I added a curved angle which I did on the shrinker to get the final shape at the nose.

This may or may not be the final shape. Lots of checking to be done.

12-20-2009 04:56 PM Hood Mockup
I started the hood mockup.

First thing was to tack a flat strip of 1/8" steel between the two hood halves and mark off a couple of cut lines to get some metal out of the way.

I then tacked a flat piece of metal to the front panel to accept a 1/2" x 1/2" angle. This represents the front of the hood.
