Tacked the hood hinges under the hood sides. Welder son suggested I use a rod through both pivot points to make sure they sat square (my mother says the inheritance of my dad's mechanical and fabrications skills skipped a generation - thanks, son!)

Clamped the brackets that will bolt to the hood frame and let them swing vertical to check that they stay equidistant when swinging up and down - so far, so good.

Continued fabrication of the hood hinge, getting the spring attached to the two parts of the hinge. It's good to see the hinge operate as intended. The design will allow the hinge to be hidden within behind the liner of the engine compartment. The long vertical piece in the third and fourth photos will attach to the hood frame.

After three months of thinking about it, I finally started the welder and began fabricating the hood hinge. The thought behind the hinge has always to hide the spring and the tilt mechanism. I think I've finally got a design that will accomplish to objective. These photos show the pivot point of the passenger side. More to come, now that I have a clear path.

I worked this weekend to mock up the hood around the windshield wipers. I used my trusty Cheerios boxes to fashion a template. It's not a mainstream edge, but I am pleased with the result.

I had a message from a viewer who wanted to see the whole car instead of closeups, so I stuck the fenders on it as it stands today. These photos are taken as far away as I can get from the car; it's not mobile right now, so I'm constricted to the garage.
