35terraplane I'm not running the bigger wheels as I'm having enough trouble turning mine with 14" wheels and tires. I'm in the middle of changing my control arms to ones that are 5/8 of an inch shorter which will bring my wheels in 1". I have already widen my fenders 2"'s to help me turn. I'm old school if you are going to run fenders you have to have them over the wheels, no gap between the top of the tire and the bottom of the fenders.

With seventeen inch wheels I don't think that you could get the hot rod look.

front wheel size

How wide of a wheel are you guys putting on the front?
I'm wanting to out a 17x9 in front and 18x10 in back. Anyone accomplished this?

Thx for the pics.
I do have all of the other hardware for the hood, just missing that 1x1 square tubing piece. Gonna have to fabricate that piece.

35terraplane I didn't go take pictures of mine, as both your cars are newer than mine and my tube is not the same on the rad. end. the end on the firwall looks the same, you can't see it but the back side has a taper.
