Crites hood.....finally!!
« on: July 06, 2022, 05:23:47 PM »
It has been 7 months, but they called a week ago and asked if I was still interested in it?  Um, ya.  I took a few extra days off over the holiday so the better half and I took a drive to Columbus area and picked it up yesterday.

I got ambitious and have it bolted on, drilled for hood pins and hole cut already!  Just need to finesse it a touch before delivering to friend for paint.

Did I really need a hood?  No.  But it will look a bit more "finished" with it.

Yes, hood is the way to go.  It'll just make it a little more bad-ass.  Finishing touch bad-ass.

Oops, sorry guess I never did report back. 

So far, no real ET or mph improvement.  Nothing noticable for the most part.  Maybe I haven't had the perfect weather either because it took a few TnT to get the carbs dialed in.  Now its just 90* all the time.
