I guess I'll have to buy the wife a Tarus...her Rav4 doesn't have a well shaped hood.

This might be too late for you JGK95, but here is what I use...the channel on one of the supports of my garage door. This pic shows me unrolling a length of aluminum tubing...but works well for just about anything. Second pic is a close up shot and the last pic shows what I end up with. Not perfectly straight but close enough that I can use my fasteners on the frame to keep it in line.

Always learning...and sharing what I've learned. The Scratch-Built Hot Rod.
