One of the items Im still working on are the front frame horns.Alot of the cars I have been looking at have frame horns sticking out past the grille.Im just trying to make mine a little more finished looking so they basically look like they belong.

I did the same thing to the other side of the hood.Im pretty happy with the basic results.I am going to have to cut the center panel loose form the inner support due to the fact it twisted when I cut the sides loose,I will be able to center everything back up that way,before I weld everything back up.I needed to start mocking up the radiator mount also,that way I can make sure the hood is exactly where I want it.I figured out the basic headlight location too.

Pulling the sides inward does create some alignment problems that I will have to adrees at some point in the process.....
In the 3rd picture you can see how much narrower the hood is at the lead edge.

I ran a piece of 2" tape right along the rasied center part of the hood as a cut line.I ran 2 more lines for reference marks.I traced the tape with a sharpie and pulled up the tape leaving the lines.
I cut the entire length of the hood along the inside line,then pulle the hood inward until the outer most line touched the cut line.

Even since I started this build,I was planning on narrowing the front sheet metal.I though it looks a bit bulky without the fenders,and mounting head light adds to the problem.Also,I think the hood is too long,so I planned to shorten it too.I decided to cut the rounded lead edge off,and shorten it behind that point.
