    New Toy. . . .Take 2

    Different toy. . .Picked myself up an LS1 SS Hood up in Austin on Saturday for $200. . . . Had a minor crack on drivers side and some paint damage due to stress (from the impact which caused the crack) Relieved the stress from the crack by cutting it out. . .went about 2 inches into hood and about 8 or 9 inches down the side. . .All in all, with gas, and a new-found skill with fiberglass (never touched the stuff until Saturday afternoon), sand paper, bondo and elbow grease, I ended up spending about $250 TOTAL for the hood. . .needs painted now (since my car isn't white) but still a sight cheaper than alot of unpainted/wrong color hoods out there.





    Ended up using the drill here to hold down the steel plate I added to the hood for strength with the fiberglass.






















    So. . .Do I have a future in bodywork?

    Recently purchased 2001 Z28 (Black-6 Speed) - 3" Flowmasters and
    other misc stuff. This, bad traction (2.21 60') and missed 3-4 shift
    netted me 13.46 sec in the 1/4 mile. . .

    That was a good job. I don't think I could have done any better myself and that is what I do part time since I was a kid.
