how to, "boser" hood, like u guy's call it...

since u all keep sending me pm's about where i bought my hood, or how did we make it, i thought why not just make a little how-to for all u edm-lovin-ricers...


First take the length and width dimensions of the part of the headlight u want to cover. then just take some sheetmetal, and cut out 2 pieces.





Then bend over one edge, so you'll get a nice clean side at the bottom in the end.




Next u just start bending it into shape so it wil fit your hood, and wont hit your headlight, and it'll line up right with the hood between the headlights.




Next u just start welding it, little by little so your hood wont bulge because of the heat.




We put a little piece of plate in the upper left corner of this pic, so when done it matches the stock shape of the bumper.




Then just grind it smooth.




Seal of the inside, so corrosion does not have a chance to appear.




Done, on it's way to the paintshop...




And the result in the end.... i think it looks very good if i may say so myself...
Notice the shape of the upstanding part of bumper between the headlights matches up with the hood... like it's oem...

Anything is possible, but i guess it won't be cheap sending those hoods overthere...


But with this howto u can just go to any metalworking dude, and let him fix it for about a 100$, takes about 4 hours work, if u do it nicely...
