Once the hood is placed along with the shell, its time to start cutting/fitting.

Pretty typical hood fit.  When the hood top is brought up to the height on the cowl, the beltline is not even close.  Like this on both sides.
 

 

 Here weve added the strip needed.  A lot of welding here....
 

 

 

Sanded and done. 

 

 

Now on to fitting the hood side.  Once it is fit to the cowl, a strip is welded for a nicer, finished look.

 

Close up of the welded edge.
Finish sanded. 
 

 

This hood side is done.  Weve made a hood latch setup that allows George to run without hood sides and no hood latch showing from the side.

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

The look without hood sides.  The hood top is latched
All fitted around shell. 
Should be a good look when painted and detailed.
