    Hey mltdwn 12, this is Skydawg, aka Mike Morgan, I’ve been off line for a bit. I just wanted to let you know I still want to be on your list. I am on there about halfway down. Let me know when it’s my turn, thank you

    List updated, two more hoods shipped recently.
    First 70 front bumper completed. Ran into some issues getting it out of the mold that will necessitate some mold mods. Working on some other parts as well. I’m going to order some vacuum bagging equipment next week to allow continued experimentation with carbon fiber.

    Just for the fun of it, let's throw my name on the list. I know it'll be quite awhile.

    Just a reminder that I’d like to be on the list for the front bumper.

    Brian, I modified the bumper mold a little bit to make it easier to remove the finished piece. I'll be laying one of those up as well this month.

    I promise to take pictures of unboxing and fitting it at least! Might be a while before I can get mine painted.

    My car had an SP1 intake with a Holley carb and a 1” spacer, there is ~4.25” from the hole in the carb where the air cleaner stud goes to the underside of the hood

    Okay here are some pictures of several of my fiberglass hoods installed on my car and several other customers. Now technically Briz's Riv doesn't have one of my complete hoods, I sold him a center section and he bonded it to his steel hood. I included it because it came out so good! I do need to soon stop by his house on my way back from one of my Florida trips and pick up an extra steel hood he has and see if I can make a mold to make a whole glass hood for the Riv!

    Craig, are you still in need of the trim piece below the grille? I have a ok one we painted to see if the paint was correct.Has a little defect but can be used.
