I know I should have a steel framed hood... but I don't. What I do have appears to be an original all fiberglass hood.

I'm looking for some good detailed photos of the latch area and particularly the transition from 'glass to the latch. The attached photo shows the area of interest and as one can see, it's pretty rough and delaminating from the latch. I'd like to make this detail as correct as I can.

Photos of the complete hood can be found here: http://saacforum.com/index.php?topic=33126.0.

Any/all assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks -

DGSOH

Here are some pictures of my car when it still had an original full fiberglass hood (off another '67 Shelby).  It's since been replaced by an original metal backed hood.

Doug, I think there is typically a irregular edge of the fiberglass to the metal latch and that over time there can be some separation and a visible gap.  If this is the case  you may want to remove any paint from the area, both materials fiberglass and metal, rough the metal a bit and apply some new (additional) fiberglass and resin to the area.  Don't add too much.

Also, and you may already know, the under side of the hood would not be body color but would have body color overspray around the perimeter and through the scoop inlet openings.  You may want to paint the underside a dark (Hot Rod) gray primer.

Thanks JD. Great photo. Between this and the one's from Brian I think I have a good direction now.

As to my call-out above, I thought they were supposed to be black on the underside? Or is the gray so dark it looks black most of the time, like a charcoal?

Thanks -

Doug
