CUSTOM HOOD FABRICATION
#1
Ok started working on the custom hood tonight..Got 1 side cut out...& the 68 shelby air extractor vent fitted..I need to do trimming of the bottom frame work for the vent to fit from the underside..I was pretty amazed to see NO PRIMER or edp coating at all on the inside of the inner frame work..

No primer on the framework? Something to keep an eye on, especially because you are putting the vents in.

Definitely a custom look, I've always loved the NASA hood, and I think your look here looks better than the Shelby style.

LOL - no... really?! Big Grin

I can't wait to see how it turns out. I'm sure it'll be awesome just like your other work. I'm anxious to hear how well it works.

Are you planning on running Ram-Air as well? I might be interested in doing something like that, considering it's over 90 about 5 months out of the year 'round these parts.

Eric...I had this same setup on my prior hood...It works very well !!! Most likely I'm going to run a ram air setup but nothing like stock..What I'm planning to do is pull air from UNDER the bumper (space between valance & bumper) With a custom made intake scoop branching off to the air cleaner housing..Not sure if I'm doing two tubes or one..Need to get the engine in first ..I have this type of setup on my 350z..much cooler air than at the height of the hood scoops...Just a hint (Thin wall PVC works very nice plus it's paintable)
