Getting the hood parts made tonight for the hood hings. The hood will be display'ed with out the hood on but will have full detail to where it can be bolted up at any time.

This is the inner fender boss that will hold the hood hings in place.

Put the hood pads on tonight so I can put the bolts in place and start putting the hinges on.

This part here is how small the hood hinge tabe that bolts on to the hood.

And every thing has to fit in this little hole, When it is done i'm not sure if it will be a full working part or in the up right spot so you can see the detail or not. The hood will not be on the parts but will have every thing in place to be bolted on if I elect to.

Showing the mufflers and center frame section is now bolted in place and the rear exhaust pipes are also connected in place. Showing every thing lit up under a flash, This show's how diffrent each color of the blacks are and the weathering on the exhaust pipes and the areas. Front end going together, Custom front shock and spring put in place. This is a kit from R&B Motion with a lot of changes to it so it was screwed in at the bottom of the strut and will have a cap over that section.

Rear swaybar arm getting put in. And the front swaybar arm connected. This is a true look at of also todays style (Nascar swaybar system
Also it's a replica of the DSE system you can see on a lot of the high end custom cars of today that compete at the Goodguys Autocross and the Optima Street Car Challange.

This is the boss plate that the hinges will be bolted to under the fender. You can see the boss has one bolt already in place and in the other side it will be bolted with the hydrolic rod hook up at.

Here is the hood with the hinge plate bolted in. There will be another one on the full hinge arms that will be on the body. I'm doing this as to show the detail is not left off the hood as the hood will not be on the body for show.

Here are the hood hinges bolted together and ready to go in and have the top plate bolted on it. I have to wait to put this in first before bolting on the plate as it has to go up from under the fender. Now i'm putting in the little detail bolts to hold the fender to the inner fender. They will be painted black after I get them all in. This is just the little detail that you will see in person more then in a photo.
