    Those look really good also. I'll be leaning more towards the 18s. Your car looks great and I'm sure you'll be excited once you narrow down your wheels an get them ordered. :bowtie:

    This is the hood. I finally put it on the car with hinges and a light spring. The gaps are pure ass because it is so poorly made but, the overall design is cool. I guess I should have test fitted and added fiberglass before painting it. Oh well, it covers the engine.

    I agree. I think it's very cool and something different. Sort of like a cross between an L88 and a cowl hood. Thanks for the pic. :bowtie:

    Hey Dave, did you move the hood around? Gaps look different.

    I got it closer by putting body shims on the passenger side hinge.
    There is still about 1/8" I can move forward then I will fit the AeroCatch pins.
    The gaps are still pretty bad. You can stick your pinky finger in them.

    I used to joke with customers that I'd have to get out the left-handed door stretcher. They didn't know if I was serious or not. Looks like that's what you need

    Some people never get work related humor.
    We used to send the new guy to the truck to get the wire stretcher. If he went out there three times, we knew he would never last.
