  • Buttercup gets a hood.

    I've done so much rearranging of things around the radiator and hood hinge I had to put the hood on one more time to see if everything clears.

      All's fair in love and war and Streetrodding. LOL
      It's got to come back off tomorrow.
      Gonna make a panel to fill this gap between the hood latch plate and the top of the radiator core. I don't want any air going over or around the radiator. And I don't want any hot air coming from the engine side of the radiator back to the front side.Click image for larger version

      I'll bet I've had this hood off and back on close to a hundred times trying to get things to clear and line up.
      As tall as that radiator looks, there's still 1 1/2" clearance between the cap and hood. But there's only 1/8" clearance between the hinge cross bar and the top of the original radiator cradle and the same cross bar and the hood
