Default Jerry's Bird Hood

Here's a couple of "rough" templates of what I did to Jerry's Firebird hood.

I tried to re-size them for dial up folks..

Though the actual hood scoop looks different, this gives an idea of what I did.

The actual hood looks even better.
I changed the openings..
So that they more closer resemble the grilles on our 69 birds

That reminds me of the hood I had a long, long time ago that had an L-88 hood scoop blended in. Very cool!

Now that you mention it..
It does kinda look like an L-88 scoop..

Of course, it does look differently now that I changed the openings to more resemble a Firebird

Here's a pic of a L-88 hood scoop. This was many years ago, but when I had it on, it sort of created a 3-tiered visual affect with the hood -- the regular "beak" and then the two tiers on the scoop itself. Looked pretty cool.....

I used to do stuff like this all the time
Once grafted a 78 280 Z hood onto a 80 Datsun P.U.
Built a turbo T/A style scoop for a 76 Olds Omega.
Chopped tops, tilt front ends, flares,

And on and on.

Finally learned the real money was in Collsion repair, not custom work..

It seemed like everyone wanted their rig customized... but never really wanted to pay what it should cost.

Now I only do custom work.. when I feel like it.
And on my own terms

let's try this again..
Hopefully this time they're resized to fit.

As you can see.
The crown down the center, will flow through the front opening of the hood.

Once I've gotten the sheetmetal 'worked' where I want it.

Body filler will actually be very minimal, and mostly for blending in everything.

here's a few of the underside.
Still have some shrinking and stretching to do before welding the inner structure back in

I have some stretched metal aluminum that will be wrapped & bonded to the backsides of the opening's to act as a "leaf catcher"
