2007 Charger custom hood with Joker mural
This fiberglass hood needed some work to make it fit the car. This is typical of fiberglass hoods, but this one was pretty bad. I had to cut the end into strips, bend them down and clamp them in place while adding layers of fiberglass cloth. I dented the top of the fender from clamping the hood to it, but that was an easy fix. By the way, 2 paint sticks taped together are exactly 3/16" thick, which is the standard gap for car panels.
I also had to reshape the hood scoop opening. I glassed-in a piece of steel on the underside, as a support and I also re-shaped the scoop opening with a die grinder, then a sander.
