    73 hood

    I finally got my hood back after 4 months. I knew there was a hole in it from what I thought was a hood ornament but realized it was to far back to be one. Found out there were 2 holds. As you can see they are not down the center of the hood. What do you think they are from. You can't get your hand under there to put a nut on it.

    It was metal patched. The hood has all ready been painted. The guy did a excellent job on matching the color. When the car was painted in 1978 the first guy didn't check to see if the color was correct. The car was darker then B26.
    I now have the colors on paper to mix more.

    O, and that it one sweet icon you have W451973
