Hey guys, as you can see im moding my stock hood in to a cowl that follows the stock body lines. its going to be completely made from sheet metel.

El Camino Update (Custom Cowl Hood) Day 1 211

As you can see here in this picture the cowl part is not curved yet, but my plans are to cut away the stock supports so I can shape the cowl with a curve. Looking at around a 4" cowl that follows the body lines, am going to build a new support to hold the custom hood together.


I need some input on this project?? let me know what you guys think! any suggestions ?

and yes Fisher am starting another project... wanna help bring 4 gal. of bondo and 100 bucks of sand paper. Laughing

It going to be bad ace though! cheers




By the way I talked to the guy today about building the stroker motor and it looks like Friday or Sat. He should be starting the machining process on the block. Am looking at around $1300 - $1400 for complete machine work and rotating assembly. bounce
