In Topic: New AAR hood for the new Revell 1:25 scale Cuda kit

count me in. I would be interested in a hood. looks great!

 

I am just the messenger, but a I used to tool around in my buddy's AAR cuda back in the late 70's and his hood was perfectly aligned with the fenders. my other buddy's AAR was bowed about an inch (if memory serves me right). many a mopar nats later, we saw AAR's with and without this bowed hood syndrome. we came to the conclusion that they get bowed because they are fiberglass hoods bolted to hood hinges, even with a soft spring replacing the origional, after a while of pulling on the front of that hood bows it since they are only bolted in the rear of the hood. and why was my buddys straight? the original owner cracked his hood it the area you have described, bought another hood and had steel rods run up the inner support and glassed in to keep the hood straight. no joke, not saying this is the answer, just my experience. I will see if I can find pictures and scan them in.

I would take one.  Al is correct about the hood bow.  Plenty of Shelby Mustangs and the Chrysler 300 Hurst share a common bowing of the fibergalss parts.
