1. wrap the hood in some plastic cloth or some transparent nylon x3 or 4
This is weary important because if the resin gets to your hood it will wrinkle immediately



2. Spray the nylon with some wax or some grease




3.Take 1 piece of cloth (not like this :pinch:) and cover it over the hood



4.Mix the Resin / Hardener



5. Tap that over the cloth



6. Put fiberglass cloth for the 2 layer and tap it with resin

8. Let it dry for a day or more...

9. Make some paper model over the real hood and trim the edges

THat looks good.. i wish i was good with fibrglass like that.. my only concern is attachment.. how are you going to secure it with the latch? if at all.. i'd hate to see a hood coming flying into my windshield running down the strip.

we already drilled the holes at oem brackets. Were just gonna use longer struts and bolt it down (that's 4 bolts on each side near windshield) and pins in front...

It should be enough...anyway its gonna be tested this week....

nice! i bet the garage smelt goooooooooood :)
I slept like a baby :fruit:

The piece we trimmed for the intake is soft, it depends on the cloth you use...

SO cloth is maybe good as 1 layer but no more...

the material we used on the scoop(old shirt) turned out too soft...

So its better to use more Fiberglas cloth(comes in the set) and net ....we need to add 1 extra layer ...

And for the record this is our first try with this, its interesting and easy....

What kind of "net" are you talkin about??

I got two hoods already, but I'm re-painting the car as soon as its warm enough so this would be sweet to do in the mean time!! :bigok: awesome job!
