if'n you need any custom sheet metal, all you have to do is ask. You can use the tools, or whatever.

easy.... get a spare hood from oleg, and let's go through a six pack...


personally, I like making reverse scoops more. for ventilation, or maybe a set of gauges externally on the hood with a shroud? How about some driving lights coming off the hood like the ole rallye cars?



maybe some naca ducts like my old turbo:

I want to dissipate heat from the engine compartment while still maintaining negative pressure behind the radiator. I am afraid that adding air into the engine compartment will reduce the amount of air flowing through the radiator. Wheeling with the 80s on the Rubicon was an eye opener. Nobody could run the A/C without overheating. And here I was thinking 80s were plush pimp mobiles. I hear 100 series can run their A/C.

Fixed it for you. Jeff and I were nice and cool.

Bringing this back up from page 5. Thinking about two tone charcoal/light grey with blue stitching. Tasteful or too much?
