    Looks like a fun project. I agree with Mike though, not sure about a bolt-on hood for a street car. Usually bolt on cowls are 5+" tall, and in my opinion, anyone with a 5" cowl better have a 408 or larger sitting under the hood to validate the need for such a huge cowl.

    I probably shouldn't have bought my GT.
    I got so many ideas, so few dollars!

    I almost shed a tear when I traded my stock hood for that awful cowl hood a couple weeks ago. It's so hard to see around!!!

    That leads us to how did you "fill" the holes that the hood hinges used to occupy?
    If that is a fiberglass cover or riveted then covered in a skim of bondo,.......easy to un-do.
    You'll have a bunch of work to restore the functionality, but you'll thank yourself for sweating it out the next time you're all alone, it's raining,the wind is blowing...and you need under there for some reason.

    If you welded plate over the holes.................................:suicide:

    If you have to keep it as it is now,...you and stock 2v can just kick each other every now and then.:banana:

    Ah, you don't need the hinges. Fab up so the entire front end tilts forward and you'll never have to lift the hood ever anyway.:D

    Like this.

    Or put the hinges up front like this.
