Re: slammed 57

Finally found a good hood , so after I got it on, here is the issue I had and after talking with other forum members heres what i came up to fix it, so I will share in case any others run into this situation thanks to mp&C ,big glass and others for I used a combination of everyones ideas


after putting it on the truck I noticed the outer round edge meets the cowl on the cab would not match up. after talkng with other we all agreed that the hood brace/hood settled int the middle... you can see here



heres what i fabricated to help me reshape the hood brace a bit. it bolts to where the factory hinge would be



after ,I placed a floor jack with a piece of 2x4 to prevent metal to metal contact and marring the hood brace , starting in the center and every 6" or so move out towards the passenger side . return to the center and then move out
toward the driver side



I measured before and after to prevent of over stretching and it also prevents of taking the hood on and of several times down to maybe 2-3 times. For my application it needed to be moved up about a 1/4" or so. at the ends where the hood ends meet the fenders , you can put them outwards by hand to match the cab cowl gaps


and the end result

Re: slammed 57

Wow great work. I'm putting this in my build book just in case.
What's the plan for stopping this from happening over time?

Re: slammed 57

not sure what caused it.... so it would be hard to figure out how to keep it from happening again.. not really sure.... the hood was in perfect shape... do dings or dents
