I live in Providence Village in the Aubrey, TX area 76227. Let me know if something can be arranged. I will appreciate it greatly. I guess its time for me to test fit the motor and check clearances.

Bump for the California hoods. It sounded like we were waiting on the headlight filled version to be made a few weeks ago.

A headlight filled/block off hood would be much desired for my car as well !!! If this is an option then I am all about it!!!!!

The molded headlight version will be pulled next week for a final test fit on my car. I will take it on a drive at speed to make sure there are no issues with the outer front edges of the headlight covers since they have no direct support under them and just attached to the hood.

Now all I have to do is find a box big enough for these things or make a crate out of wood. Either way, i really hate shipping crap like this, but oh well. If it is the worst thing I have to deal with, then I am doing all right.

I am interested in results. What about adding support to the hood or inside the headlight bucket to put hood pins to? I would imagine that if support is designed in the hood to join the sections together well there shouldnt be a problem. Let us know.

I don't see it having a problem. I want to make sure though.

You going to keep making these to order in the future or is this going to be a one time shot deal? I'm think'n about getting one for the red car when we repaint it later this year (the stock hood is completely toast).

There should be no issues. I have my lids attached using some angle aluminum and rivets right now and they flex a little, but nothing major. If it were a stiffer mount it would be much better.

Be sure to take them with your cell phone in a poorly lit area so there's lots of noise and motion blur. Also, make sure only 25% of the hood is actually in the picture.

I'll have your boyfriend take them if I let him out of his cage. He said you were a pretty shitty Dom and that not only did you lack confidence, but you treated him poorly. You need to learn to respect your sub and be a benevolent dom, because us dom's do not appreciate undeserving doms like yourself.
