    Putting some work into the hood. Welding up holes from the hood pins and crappy scoop, and power washed the bottom.

    Welding on the middle of a hood takes some balls!

    Not really, the hood is pretty banged up in the middle.

    Sounds like a good hood for a scoop!

    Sounds like it was a good hood for a scoop . . . a crappy one.

    Welding in the middle of hood takes about as much balls as cutting a hole in the middle of a perfectly good hood for a scoop! There was some hesitation.:eek:

    I know my limitations when it comes to body work. There will be a new scoop on the hood, but the old holes need to be gone first
