thoughts on aftermarked nasa hood
In my opinion they are flimsy junk..... had all kinds of problems with one on a mustang I did a couple years ago. But....... its all we have to work with so you make it work. Definitely pre-fit before paint. Get the arch where you want it. Weld the seam underneath. Everything everyone has said so far is spot on. I just think they are much more flimsy than a factory hood. Lighter sheetmetal. I know I will be repairing my original when I repaint mine in a few years. Another thing I noticed is that it seemed to be a touch narrower than factory. I would like to see the hood to fender gap just a touch smaller. But the only way to get that would be to weld a 1/8" rod down both sides of the hood and grind to fit perfect. They can be made to look very nice, just takes some work.
