I backed the car out of the garage long enough to show you guys a couple pics of the new hood. It fit pretty good, had to do a little shimming to get the body lines to match up. Made my own screens for the openings. I'll get some better pics if we ever get rid of this @$#%& snow.

yeah, it does but I went ahead and bought the house because I got it $75k below appraised value. The area is rapidly growing. I plan on keeping the house a couple of years and selling for a nice profit.

Emay gave me the idea of bolting them in from the back. There was enough meat in the back of the openings to fasten the screens in with small phillips head screws and washers. It turned out really nice. When I open the hood it still has a nice finished look.

Looks great! When you get a chance, I'd love to see some pics of the underside of that hood. That's the Cervini's Type IV hood, right?

Yes this hood is fiberglass. I drilled a small hole in the back side just big enough to get my screws started. Epoxy or glassing it in may be your only option. Surely theres someone on here thats installed screens in their fascia.

Anybody???????

Sooner, my experience is that your going to need to epoxy or glass them, there is not enough meat without doing so. Cut it a tad large and lay your glass over the edges for a good bond.. It'll come out fine..

Muscle, nice work man, glad everything worked out for you. Came out real nice..
