I know there have been some questions about doing this in the past.....

Not being willing to pay for a new hood and not being crazy about the cowl size of the aftermarket stuff I found, I decided to make my own. After much procrastination I finially decided to start on my hood this weekend. My last attempt yeilded a warped mess which I was not able to correct without alot of filler. This time I got some .023 MIG wire and took my time. It turned out much better and had no warpage at all.

Here is a pick of the inserts and rear graft. I could only go about 4 1/2 inches without destorting the center rib.

No problem. You can go ahead and forward me the first $10K Monday morning. The second half will be due on delivery in late July. ;)

Well actually it does have an overhang. If you look closely in the picks you will see a tan strip along the back of the cowl. This is a 2" piece from the rear of the hood that I cut and grafted from the first hood I butchered. Then I made tapered fillers for the sides. It made for a really subtle, yet nice touch...if I do say so myself.
