Introducing the new and improved 73vertproject
#1
Sorry for the crappy pic, but I just got the new NASA/NACA hood and hinges installed and wanted to let you guys see the transformation that is taking place. Kinda miss the look of the old hood with the stripes, so I'm looking around for cool hood treatments for NASA hoods on 'verts. Lots of work ahead. Undecided

By the way, I think the hood looks great, awesome quality. Thanks to Don at OMS!

Very nice Doc, they are quite a bit different looking from the drivers seat as well!

Cool! It's going to look like a different car without those stripes.

Thanks! Yep, you got that right. Felt like I was parking with Braille as I put her in the garage. Tongue

Thanks! The functional is tempting, and may be in the plans for the future....

I know, right? Anyone have pics of a convertible with NASA hood with stripes? I don't recall ever seeing one.

Thanks. Once I get the scoop inserts and the scoop "inserts" (don't know what they're called) installed, I'll take some better pics and start getting serious about the looks.
