    I ordered my hood from tamraz, good quality but it took a while to get it.

    That's good too know. It'll be awhile before I can afford a hood. I've got other things too spend money on first, LOL.

    You could also , since you can't afford the cowl hood yet , is to make your own "wide" cowl hood :

    Take the lines on each side of hood , cut along lines , lift up , and weld in filler strips , thus creating a stock steel "wide" cowl hood :thinking:

    I'm not going too mess with the stock hood. Don't have any of the tools that I'd need, and I'm really in no big hurry. I'm just saying I like this fiberglass hood, and I think it'd be kewl too add some flappers from a early 70's Chevelle, or maybe the hood loovers from a 66 Chevelle, or 68 Camaro.

    It would look cool the way you want . I just remember Car Craft doing it in the 90's with a stock hood , looked pretty sweet and the cowl was 2/3rds the width of the hood .

    I have seen some tall fiberglass cowl hoods here on Friday nite drags , and those look sweet as hell on your body style :D

    I might need it too clear the breather I want. I like tall filters.
