08-08-2010 10:36 AM Shrinking the hood
I was told the hood was actually in a field and cows were walking on it when the original owner found it.He warped it up when he welded on it,and I did it no favors by cutting it into 6+ pieces.If you look close at the prior posts,you can see how warped up the hood had become by this point. I have only tried to heat shrink metal a couple of times,but have only had it work right once,that was on the tailgate of this truck.So,needless to say,shrinking the hood was going to be an adventure.........

08-08-2010 10:25 AM Repeaking the hood
The original owner peaked the hood using brake line.After all the grinding and and out side exposure,the brake line was very thin in alot of areas,and starting to rust from the inside.I had also removed part of it when I cut up the hood.I simply ground off the brake line and tack welds,and welded on a solid steel 3/16" rod to repeak the hood.
