      Not sure yet if my entry will be a show rod or just a best efforts kit but I have a question about the Pontiac engine. There is a feature just above the kit water outlet that looks to be the original real water outlet. Seems funny to leave this feature on the model if it is not in use. Can some of you rodders enlighten me as to whether there is something else this is used for before I glue this mess together.

    Wonder what you all think of these hinges - too big? I for sure would have to grind about 1/8" off the ends to really fit. Maybe grind a little down each side?

    They were availabe at www.hardwaresource.com for $4 each.

    Not sure if I will used a full hood on the final yet. The hood could not fit all the way down as I had the drag link mounted upside down causing interference which will not be the case on the final.

    Looks good Syd, I think I may have to mimic your exhaust on my build.

    As mentioned above:

    Is there any where on the site that it explains how to do the center section? The chrome strip will interfer with opening up. I don't think letting the hinge show painted chrome would be a solution. Help! Help!

    Dang, I didn't even see the link. That's what I get for using my computer without my glasses. Thanks Syd. I think the secret of the center section would be discovered if we looked at how the real thing was hinged. If we can't get a good solution, what about leaving the hood top uncut and putting the hinges only on the sides. Then the hood would open from one side only and the raised side flap will just rest against the open top just out of the way. :confused: Other than that, I'd have to do some thinking.

    If you get a chance to see the real thing - drop me a clue. I have tried every search I can think of and the nearest picture I could find looked like the hinge is exposed. Remember the center hinge has to open the oposit of the side hinges. This size hinge might be pretty ugly exposed down the ceter line of the hood.

    I have an idea that may be a direction towards the solution. It may take me a bit of time to figure it out but if my suspicions are correct, the solution is in hand.

    BINGO ! Hey Syd, I finally got the right answer for the hinge problem for the center line on the deuce hood. Originally, we thought the hood only had 3 hinges, one on each side and one in the middle. I had a chance today to see the real thing. The center part has two hinges, one on each side of the chrome strip. That's how it can fold out over the chrome strip without pinching it. Also, there are two clips that hold the hood in place. One is at the front between the grill shell and hood and the other is between the hood and the cowl. They're the only things holding the hood on. As soon as I can clean up the pics, I'll post them along with a drawing of some sort showing how it's done. Again, I've found the solution for a completely working hood. l: l: l:

    Here's some pics of my 1/1 Monogram 32 hood.Notice the curvature at the center of each hood [B]top[/B] section. The chrome moulding slides over each side of the curvature and holds the 2 tops together....Hope it helps........Mike.........I'll be happy to e-mail larger pictures to you if you'd like..... hemifarris@aol.com
