    Hah no. I don't care what it looks like. I just want a stock hood because I hate having to look over/around a cowl. All the parts I would like to use have been in use on 9 sec and faster combos that are very reliable, and that's what I'm worried about.

    And besides, the narrowed rear end and roll cage give away the secret hahaha

    If I can fit a flat stock hood on mine then you should have no trouble at all.. I can't find a flat fiberglass hood for my 84 otherwise it would be on my car. I can't in good faith keep the steel hood. The stock flat hood look is where it's at IMO!

    Reason hath prevailed. Spent this month's engine budget money on a Wolfe Racecraft 8 to 10 point cage conversion. Now I can tie the front end to the cage and call the chassis work done.

    I wont have the cam for a couple of weeks anyway, so may as well keep things rolling (pun?) while the engine collects dust. May try my hand at a light port/ polish job on the heads if I get bored.

    Hoping to be home this weekend. This is day 22 of a 10-14 day trip. FML.

    Because its a BP project. BP does not stand for "Brilliant Planning" or "Bright People." We've wasted an easy 4 days just waiting on instructions of what to do. I could go on, but the main reason is lack of organization and planning. And for a boat that is ~$100k a day to charter, its a bit ridiculous. I'm done with offshore work. They can have it.

    Hahah wellll....

    My project will likely be in a sloooow if not pause mode after this next round home. Going to Puerto Rico in July with the girlfriend and hope that she will return as my fiance. I mean, she's already told me she'll marry me, but I still gotta do the whole "one knee" thing.

    With that said, a vacation and the ring have been hoovering all of my spare cash. Buying that cam and cage was dumb, but I have to have something to play with when I get home right??? I've even thought about selling the engine and trans and just keeping the roller for a while, but then I slapped myself.

    Please don't let me sell the engine.

    I do have an intake and cam/springs from my 408 build that I'd like to part with. Anybody willing to help finance my engagement will be doing me a HUGE favor :hail:

    Pictures of the girlfriend are required. We can make a skilled decision as to you keeping her or the car after that. I say you stay with one or the other ;)
