Wow! Great body parts on that site-thanks, I bookmarked it in case I ever want to look at some first class fenders.

Did you get a heavy or light duty hood?

only thing i did was some light sanding and cut out the center for the carbs and air cleaners...
i sold the steel hood and chose the glass because i would not cut the NASA hood

Sean,
Does the 'glas hood have the NASA scoops? I's sure like to see a photo of it if possible.

they are indented to look like the scoops and i measured them and it looks like you can cut them out and use original inserts...

Sean,
Make sure you let us know how it fits. I have been thinking about buying one from them also. Really worried about all of the horror stories about poor fitting fiberglas part from many of the vendors... Keep us updated.

Glenn,
the hood fits PERFECT....
the hood came slightly wider so if it isnt a perfect fit you can sand down the sides so the gaps are exact
YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED
