    I saw a nice looking hood for my 67 Barracuda on VFN fiberglass website. I have to replace my hood anyway and am looking for a good replacement.I am looking for any input of people who have used their hoods before I buy one.
    Thanks

    What is your expectation for fit?

    My past experience is it required a lot of fit and fishing to fit and look at good as stock steel.

        Someone on here is doing a hemi swap on his barracuda and has one. I will try and find it. I believe he painted the car gold

              Unless you get extremely lucky, plan on doing a lot of fitment with any fiberglass panel. I've only had one or two pieces fit without sanding on them to make them fit properly.
