Thanks fellas. I just got pics of the completed hood. Between Dave and Norm this is what they came up with. I gave them both carte blanche to do whatever they wanted so I had no idea what the finished product would look like. I must say this isnt what I expected....its better. Fantastic job Dave and Norm! As usual. I cant wait to see what it looks like on the car.

Thanks! I just got tired of owning horse power I couldnt use without fear of breaking something. I want to be able to drive to the strip, make some solid passes and drive it home.
