Decided to try and make the 2003 mustang scoop style hood I've always thought would look goon on our cars. Here's a few pics of what I've done so far. Lots more work and somehow I need to learn to use a dolly and hammer.

When you are done with the filler, set it out in the sun for 3 weeks, then look it over for shrinkage.
Trust me!

There, fixed it for you :drums:

This is a bad ass looking hood. It reminds me of the late 70's Z28 hoods.

Still working it. I bought a corner gauge from Home Depot and marked every 2 inches along both sides so i can get the contours as close as possible to each other. I have a little more to go. I need to treat the inside of the hood with a rust converting paint before I weld it up. I also need to find a source for some clean sheet metal. Pretty sure Alro metals will have it so I'll call this week. Also need to get enough sheet metal to practice with the tig before I hit the real thing. I don't know if I'll have the patience to leave it in primer!
