I'm using a mini bear claw latch set up that is normally used for a tail gate.They are set up inside little finished boxes that welded to the inner side panel supports.

07-25-2010 08:12 PM Keeping the hood shut.....
One area that has been giving me trouble,is how to keep the hood shut.I was trying to figure out a simple pinning system,but did not like the idea of them sticking out thru the hood sides. Found a dual handled release set up at a show a while back.It was designed for a hood and trunk set up,but it works for a dual hood latch set up.

If you are keeping score,the entire frame,rear suspension,gas tank,and underside of the cab are all painted.The front suspension will get color later,because some of the parts are getting powder coated and some are going to be painted.I try to get items i need at shows during the summer,and a pretty big one is coming up,so I needed to see if I was going to have enough sound deadener to finish the truck,which,I do not.Guess I will be getting some more...........
