Pat, how did you do this to the underside of the hood? It looks like a kit part!

Just some strips of styrene and covered the rough body work with embossing powder .I was trying to make it look like a fiberglass hood .

It looks great, I'm gonna steal that trick for myself! If you paint the textured area Black or Gray, it would look perfect as the underhood insulation!

I found some headlight from the Hot Rod version of the Beverly Hillbillies car today and have almost everything painted.
