You have made alot of progress in a short time.My sequence of pictures stops at the pile of parts in the garage.

So this is the progress on the hood hinges and supporting framework, just tacked together so far, changes may happen [S. In case anyone thinks I know what I'm doing here, forget that, I'm just making it up as I go along :confused:. It took a lot of tweaking and running changes to the hinges to get them to move the hood up and forward properly, more fine tuning needed yet, but it does basically work..... I need to hit the boneyard and find a suitable hood latch with a release cable and spring that pops it up when released.

It looks real good so far.

For somebody that's just making it up as you go...you sure have a good eye!!! Tell me something tho. When those hinges fold to the down position, do you have some sort of indexers on rear section of your hood frame or will the front hood latch suffice in keeping the hood down???

Good question. As far as locating it from side to side, the way the hood wraps around the cowl will take care of that, some 1/4" snubbers will be needed between the hood sides and top plus there will be a welting strip that attaches to the rear of the cowl. Though the hinges look like they would lift straight up, they can't, so the rear of the hood isn't going to pop up when latched.
