Okay, then getting a blower kit from an aftermarket source or the wanted section here is job one. Make sure of course that it's suited to whatever engine you are using. Most of the late sixties and seventies style kits came with a scoring on the underside to cut it out for a hood scoop, blower, twin air filters, what have you. Is yours and AMT or Jo-Han? At any rate if it doesn't have a cutout you can mock up the built engine in the assembled chassis. Then dry set the body over it and get your measurements to cut open the hood. I always cut a little small, then sand outward from there with emery boards and constant test fittings. That way you wind up with a hood cutout that clears your blower setup realistically, depending wether you want it to appear hinged or lift-off style.

P.S. Depending on the engine choice I may have a blower setup for you. I personally never use them preferring my MOPAR Rompers to be sleeper style. :D

Pretty much. By the way, welcome to the board Coshocton. Let me check my stash tonight, I might have a blower setup for you. What engine are you using? I need to know who made your kit so I can get one together that's going to work for you.
