'32 Ford Custom Hood Construction, con't.

Hood top and grill shell.

Shaping of the hood and grill shell need to be done at the same time to make sure that all the lines are blended properly.

With the hood top formed and cut to the proper length, it is time to start working on the support structure.

To keep the engine cool under the hood, some louvering would be nice to vent the air. Or, we could do louvers one better. How about some vents that resemble the exhaust ports you'd find on the engine nacelle of a WWII fighter?

Inside or out? These Deuce Steel '39 Ford taillight recesses are just right for the job.
