        I hope you don’t mind but I’m totally stealing some of your ideas for my 65 Valiant!

        Hood finally arrived. Had to do a little shaving here and there but overall nice fit. Been super busy at work moving into a new building but there finally some light at the end of the tunnel and should be able to paint this thing next week.

          That looks like the same one I am using on my '65 Barracuda. Is it from VFN?

          Okay, that's a division of Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle; they are building my Barracuda. The hood comes from VFN, just a few blocks down the street. Did you get the hinged or the pin-on version?

          Hinged. It was a little more expensive.

          Yeah, that's what I am going with. A little more expensive, and 11 pounds heavier, not counting the extra weight of the hinges and gas struts--but a little more convenient for solo maintenance.

                  Hmm. Boost gauge is going on the pillar but I think that's it.

                    I see now those two on top are also molded in
                    It looked like they were just sitting on there at first
