Updated shots of hood repairs done 3/10/2012


Back to main SSR Page

I was paid to fly out to Las Vegas, where the truck is now located, to repair the hood once again. This time, the repairs were due to the previous shop that put a 70 Chevelle cowl induction scoop on the stock hood. The welding and plastic work they did was not up to par, although the hood looked nice. There were underlying problems. Even the underside of the hood had issues. The front bumper was also chipped, so it was pulled off and repaired as well:

This was just one of the problems that was found. No wonder the plastic work chipped and cracked so easily:

This was all that was needed in the same spot:

Just a thin coating of plastic, instead of the gallons they packed in:
