For those that have added a little material to extend the hood under the hood scoop (did I say that right?) how far are you going in? I have built up the area to extend the hood in about two inches and am ready to do the final shaping and not sure if it is enough or too much. On my 68 Mustang the hood material is overlapped by the hood scoop by a lot and this would not look right..

Any ideas?

thanks a bunch

I added about 2-3/4" and I think it looks about right. Although at 2" it starts getting difficult to sand properly. Another thing you might want to think about is how you are going to start/stop the stripes and how it will look from the inside and out side of the hood.

Dan/Ken,

Something only someone who has been there could have mentioned.. I did not even think about the spraying and final taping of stripes..

Thanks another reason this forum is sooooo essential to a build..
