Mocking up Jim’s hood peak turning a 3 pc hood into a peaked one piece hood.
We also narrowed it about one inch at the front base, two and a half inches at the peak and pushed the peak of the nose back almost two inches. The peak insert was made by giving a strip of 4″ x5″ 18 gauge some compound shape with a planishing hammer, then adding a peak in the brake with two reverse breaks coming to a point about 4/5 th of the way towards the rear of the hood. Fine tuning with a shrinker/stretcher to achieve a slightly higher crown than needed. This was done to allow some shrinkage during welding. More videos to come as we cut, trim, tack and weld after Jim says that he likes it =D[su_youtube_advanced url=”http://youtu.be/dCWExCdEb48″ modestbranding=”yes”]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQtBJmtQXgQ[/su_youtube_advanced]
