First thing we did today was to lower the back of the hood.  If you compare this photo with the others look at the Wilson intake to see the difference.



After modifying Frankenstein, we got to play with some Poly Form.  This stuff has the small fiber fiberglass mix in for extra strength.  



Tomorrow we will take the screws out, fill where the screw were with the poly form and fiberglass over the poly form and start sanding the outside to the curvature that we want.   cool

  We should have posted a pic of the underside after we smoothed out the Poly Form and glassed it. Looks alot better than pic above tongue

LOVELY.

Of course you will be working on it until you drive down the driveway but it's looking promising.

Way to go, fellows.

We successfully put down two layers of resin and mat on the hood, it was a wait and dry type of day. cheers  Sunday we will do some sanding and then put down some filler to get this hood looking smooth.

You guys do such nice work! I really like the ducting to the supercharger. Any positive pressure you make here will help power as if you needed it! Lol!
I'm thinking this is going to be a great year for you.

We have lots to do this week!!  The car goes to the painter on Friday for two weeks!!  This will be a stressful  two weeks of waiting, when we get it back we only have about 4 days to get everything else completed. And loaded up.  Must be Bonneville time because we are always scrambling. evil

One more coat of bondo to fill the low spots and the painter can fix the rest.



The new smaller gas tank is secured and all the fuel lines connected.



Today we need to make about six holes in the hood, two for studs and four to let out the excess air from the blow off valves.  The painter gets this car today, so we need to have it ready for him.   Then it's two weeks of waiting. tongue

  Thanks Don...about the same color but not candy and no graphics for now, Were looking at a candy look alike
but a regular stock color for easy matching in case banners get in my way tongue

   Good news from painter, thinks he can have it done by next weekend, giving us another week to finish up.

Ya those damb banners have little legs and walk right out there, they have some nice candy's & pearl's now.

Looking forward to seeing it done & a record too.

I was there in 65' and Lee Van Pathero wen't 174 mph in his 57' Bel Air using a hilborn injected 327', and that was pretty fast in a stock body. Then he wen't 223 in a big block Camero, just amazing how it gets better with more power and aero stuff

This is how we will mount our headlight covers.  After the car is painted we will rivet them on these.



These are the holes we made in the hood so the excess air from our blow off valves doesn't push the hood up.
