Looks great! I guess the hood hinges work good too.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Thanks guys. I will see how the new hinges work tomorrow. I forgot to mark where the holes go for the door mirror on the driver's side.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Time for some updated pictures of my panel. I got the new hood hinges installed. I like the looks, but they are entirely too stiff closing the hood about the last 12 inches. If you let the hood go when you have it all the way down, it would jump up and hit you in the chin! Going to call Eddie Motorsports tomorrow and get them to send me lighter struts. Did a little more fussing with the gaps and tightened them up a bit.. Overall pretty happy at this point.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Lines and gaps are looking great. It would suck to get knocked out by a hood...

Hinges will compliment the build well! Good choice.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Yes, we installed the actuator and linkage earlier. It was always the plan to shave the handle.

Nice wok on the panel truck. I really like the gate and split doors.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

It's been a while since I posted some progress pics of my Panel. I have a lot on my plate with our new products coming out, parts sales, new product development and trying to squeeze in some Panel love time... That's why it is such a set back when you get a product that doesn't function as it should. I am of coarse talking about the Eddie Motorsports hood hinges I purchased for my Panel. They didn't work as I felt they should with either the heavy or light duty struts so I sent them back. After doing a lot of research and watching a few videos I decided to try American Billet hinges. Wow what a difference!! The hood opens up all the way and stays open! Doesn't drop a bit. Matter of fact it seems to have a detente to keep it open. It closes nice without having to force it!! I will be looking into carrying their line of hinges for a new product to offer. Anyway here are a few pictures to show you how it's coming along. WES

Thanks guys. I do have high expectations, I am that way about everything it would seem... That has proven more than once to be good for my customers, but hard on the wallet.. WES

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

We made a little more progress. We decided not to use the red hood because it had some hidden issues that would cause us way more headaches. Back to the old hood. We managed to fix the oil can effect so I settled with it. Good news part was it fit better than the red hood, so that was a bonus. We also got the grill fitted. First time in over 15 years that I have seen it with a grill! I fell back in love with it... These are exciting times for me, it will be sad to see it blown apart to start the priming and painting. I think I am going to pull it off it's chassis and have it powder coated while it is apart. I can also fit the engine and transmission easier that way. WES
