What look are you after for the hood? I like the way this one sits on there. It could come back to the glass a bit more but I like the look it gives the car. This is gonna look awesome Eric!!!!!!

Thanks Carl, I'm still not sure about the hood, I might just use a cowl hood with a hole towards the back...

Love the wheels and the rake of the body. Speaking of hoods, this reminds me of a slot body Sixx did (I think) with a late model camaro but with twin turbos popping out and a huge intercooler. Not that I'd want to take on the actual design and build of an engine to fit this setup, but if you can build like this and shoot such nice paint, you'd be a shoe-in for a turbo monster...
