New R/T Hood.
I have been wanting to get a new Carbon Fiber SRT10 hood for my truck. I thought it would look good on the black truck.
So anyway I like to be different from everybody else. So I desided to build my own hood. I started with this.
It's a 1970 Super Bee R/T hood. A friend of mine bought it about 10 years ago at a swap meet for $700. Then put it onto of his shed and forgot about it. Anyway the bottom frame rotted away.
So I bought it for $50.
I then proceded to cut it up.
Then I took a ride to Lake George and picked up my donar hood from Dicksgotahemi.
I did lots of trimming and fitting. The scoop is a bit long for the short hood. So I had to do some mods to make it fit.
Once I had the scoop fitting where I wanted I cut out the hole in the hood.
I then went through and got it all welded in place.
Then right now I'm up to the first coat of marsglass. Then tomorrow night I have to flip it over and make the under hood braces the will hold the scoops in.
So thats it for now. I can post up more pics as I go if you guys want to see them.
