If any car ever deserved the term "Gangster". I think it is this one.

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.

Ah good! The rising up in the rear was what I was worried about. I was thinking if the hinges would allow some forward movement then they might allow rise also...beautiful work!
Definately need the fedora and violin case....

Quickly, back to your exhaust... can you reverse the tubes you have? Left for right and therefore, forward facing? Or simply inverted? Block huggers, perhaps?

Just thinking out loud. I understand you'd have to cut and flip the flanges... and the car gets skinny up front... and, and, and....

Clearly, your builds force me to think some (and not that it matters to this build) but I've often thought the hardware from one of these Buicks might serve (the right project) well..

Are these hinges the ones you made from the pic with the rule under it?

Fantastic work. I'm such a hack compared to your work it kinda makes
me ill or jealous or some dang thing.
When do we get to hear the exhaust? You are going to share the moment
with us right?

The plan is to split the exhaust at the collector - forward thru an electric 3" cutout and up to the 'lakes pipes", the main exhaust will run to the rear thru 2 1/2" pipes. I have a plan.....:cool:
Those hinges look interesting, I'll put it it my mental toolbox....

I'll share the sounds but you'll have to be patient, I don't expect to have it running 'till next summer :(

I decided to go back a couple steps and install the radiator before going any farther with the hood frame and latch. As usual, what seems easy isn't... I had to completely cut apart and reshape the core support to fit it in. While the grille was out, also made the filer pieces in front of the rad to direct air coming in the grille to go through it.
Naturally, everything seems to want to fit into in the same spot - hood frame, latch, cowl struts, rad filler - need to make a new mount to the top of the core support to tie all these things together....

Good grief... I'm not on for a couple days and you have 4 pages of updates since then. Love the progress, so I wasn't too far off saying vents in you hood sides. They are kind of a vent.... Looks amazing!
