I wanted to finish the fabrication part of the hood before it goes into storage tomorrow. I won't be able to get back on it till next winter, so I thought I'd share some pics of it at this point.

Thanks Andy. I found that if you keep pounding on something long enough, eventually it becomes something else that you need.

There is something special about bare sheet metal pieces. It's nice to see the pictures before the paint goes on.
Thanks
Rich

You know Tom if you practice at that metal work long enough you could probably open a business doing that kind of work :-)

Very nice looking hood ... but I have to ask how do you hold your pants up when you use your belt to hold the hood on?

Very nice. Thank you for posting. That is a good looking racer/speedster.

Tom,

Please consider making that exhaust system available for purchase. I have two Rajos that would look great bolted those headers.

Dennis, no problem holding them up, as usually on jobs like this, I lose my pants....as well as my shirt!
