Pics of how I cut thicker metal. I found this nibblin' machine for cheap years ago. No plasma cutter so I just make a template from thin wood that I can cut with snips and smooth into shape on my belt sander. Clamp the thin wood to the sheet and it rides on the nibbler punch and traces it exactly. Well, not exactly, just needs some smoothing on the belt sander. I can cut 1/8" thick sheet with it. Sweet.


This is 14 ga in the pics.

How to screw up a perfectly (not so) good hood:












Finding the pivot point. (Too far back here)

Those of you with a keen idea would have noticed the round corners at the bottom of the hood by now to clear the fenders.


Cowl/hood/fender intersection is a very bad place to be in the hot rod building process and has had me stalled for a while. That and getting a new DD, installing hitches and stuff.....all take time. But mostly getting my head around this intersection....

I needed an offset patch with a curve to match the hood. Well, the hood can match the patch later easily enough.


I used my hydraulic knockout punch with inverted punch into an oversized die to press the step. This could be done in a vise using a socket and a short piece of thick walled tube. (I'm pretty sure anyways)

Those of you with a keen eye would have noticed the radius did not blend properly in the last pic where it transitioned from cowl to hood corner.
No problem, just a short weld extra.....

Won't be any car related work getting done here until next summer. New place has no heat and once I get all my "stuff" moved, no room to work either.
I DID drive the Camaro 50 ft to load on the trailer and bring to the new place last week, the ONE day it didn't rain. Off loaded here, drove it in the shop, onto the lift and pulled the battery.
New pole shed has already been pushed back to the end of October and that's IF IT EVER stops friggen raining NOW... We are 11" over normal for rain for this time of year. If it keeps raining, it may not get built this year...
If it gets cold early, with no snow, the frost will go down fast and deep, with the soil so saturated. I'm on sandy ground here, but the builder doesn't work in cold weather, which I agree with. Too many issues later with expansion of wood that was nailed together in a frozen state.

Thanks Jordan. Welcome aboard.



Nice looking project. You should start a build thread. Lot's of us here love to follow along and "hang out" in your garage with you.

I had to do some major banging in at the top of the new patch at the pointy part to get the required offset for the hood to clear. I then needed a wiggly patch to match to weld onto the fender as a new flange piece at the top.
