This is a slow going project that i have been working on for close to three years off and on... The majority of the hold up in the beginning was how to construct the hood. Then i finally managed to cross that bridge and a couple months later i was in the hospital for 6 months...
Im back to working on it again and this is the route im taking... A lowered gas station tow truck...
This is just a rough mockup, but ill be updating when i can...

The hood was the biggest pain , I'll snap a pic of the underside so you can see how much glue and styrene was used to get it to look like this...
