No I didn't but it was not difficult. The hood is made of 4 pieces of brass.
In the photo above you will note a solder line at the break in contour. For the bottom section, I placed a piece of the brass in a small brake to put a sharp bend in it. I then cut the brass close to the sharp bend side. I did this for each side of the hood. Then I laid this curved piece down with the sharp bend edge just touching another flat piece of brass that I annealed to soften it. The two pieces were then soldered together.
In the photo above you can see where the curved bottom section overlaps the other piece. Then I used a piece of brass tubing as a form and bent the top piece of each side of the hood to finish the curve at the sides. I did this repeatedly until I had each side close to the bends I needed. Then and only then did I cut the two hood sides to fit the opening. Once this was done I soldered each half of the center hinge in place. The brass pin that holds the hinge together was replaced with a piece of stainless steel rod of the same size. The steel is stiffer and allowed the two hood sides to be taken apart repeatedly until the fit was as close as I could get it.
Filing the edges took some time. I drilled small holes in the cowl and radiator shell for two small slivers of brass sheet that had holes drilled in them to accept the steel rod. After the hood was put in place and the slivers dropped in each hole I put a small amount of superglue in the hole to secure them. Final fitting took place after this was done because now I had a secure way to align the hood each time.
The louvers on the hood sides are pieces of quarter round plastic rod. Latches are pieces of brass rod with an inside catch.
