    The 4" cowl Harwood hood I bought years ago fit horrible. I'm looking for a flat stock hood, bolt on, not lift off.

    OMG, they make a Chevette hood! I wouldn't have thought there would be a lot of demand for that ..

    Unlimited Racing Fiberglass http://up22.com has some awesome fiberglass hoods , front ends and complete bodies now . Watch the Discovery channel show "No Prep Kings" , all the race cars use fiberglass parts from Unlimited

    The new and current owner of Unlimited has changed how the hoods are made and now is a very profitable business . He has a semi truck full of fiberglass parts that goes to alot of NHRA races and racers buy from him right off the truck at the track

    I have used Harwood bolt-on hoods on several Camaros with no fitment issues. The Glasstek hood on my '67 Skylark is one of the best fitting I have ever seen. I'm going to purchase a 2" cowl hood for my Futura from them.

    I have a 6" Glasstek hood on my 1979 Z-28 Camaro. It took a little bit of work (they all do" but it turned out quite well.
