Thanks, now I don't have to squint :)

I have to finish up the mods to the front fenders so they mate up to the firewall, then I'll start on the hood sides. Got the right one done today and started on the left side. I had to split the fender all along the edge where it mates to the bottom of the hood side to re-align it, then extend the flange and fill the hole. I clamped a piece of 1x1" to the flange to keep it straight while welding it back together [;) All this extra fab is due to the fenders being mounted 5" forward from stock.

Nice work! The way you did it looks factory!

Getting started on the first hood side fab. I don't have the tooling to create the reveal to match up to the one on the body side so I cheated and used a piece of 1x1" for the top and sanded the edges down so they match up to the reveal on the cowl, tacked the side panel up to it with a 3/16" recess. On the lower edge I backed it with 3/4x3/4" tube to keep it straight - all welding will be done on the backside. Hard to see, but I brought the 1" top piece to a point at the front similar to the factory side panel. The sides will be fixed and the hood top will open at the front - that's a big blank side but I have some ideas how to deal with that.....

Looking good! Assume you made a template first but what did you use to cut out the panel? Anxious to see what you do with the blank area. [P[P[P

Kool idea! I guess the car is wide enough to be able to work on the engine ,with the sides fixed.

Would you like to come to the states for a working visit?

Yes, I made a cardboard template, just cut the sheet (18ga.) with a jigsaw. Yep somethin' fancy to go in the hood sides.

Yeh, there is enough room for engine work, besides, I have long arms.

With both hood sides made and mounted, I marked an approximate outline for openings to be cut.
