Kits with clear hoods

I have a vague recollection of seeing or maybe even at one time having a clear hood with the Ford teardrop bubble. MPC '67 or '68 Mustang, maybe? Or was that the clear hood in the AMT '68 Shelby? 

That would be the '67 Fairlane kit.

Huh! You're right! But I never had or even saw that kit as a kid, so the one I'm thinking of must have been from something else. :unsure:

ETA: Further research shows the original annual AMT '67 Mustang had a clear teardrop hood. The MPC '68 Mustang had a clear hood, but it wasn't teardrop, it was stock.

I always use Clearview 2000 when I need clear hood. Any of y’all heard of it?

Yes, I've got a case of 'em! I tried to spray them but nothing came out - probably dried up.

I did notice that the leaking cans disappeared!

Hmm, strange. :blink:

I have a can of this innovative product 😄 Any longtime or older readers of SAE should recognize this.
