View Full Version : 2500M hood



10-21-2007, 02:19 PM
Ok, so I went and bought a new toy - a 74 2500M.
I'll have it as soon as I can make space for it. Right now it's a big jigsaw puzzle...

The PO has made a new hood mount, using the old one as a pattern. It needs to be glassed into the hood, and it also needs some angle iron welding on to allow the bumpers to be mounted.

I need pics so I don't mess it up.

Can anyone help me out here?

I'm working on the same thing...except I still need to fabricate a new hood frame. I'd appreciate any measurements you might be able to share. Below is a pic I came across somewhere (maybe ebay). of the frame glassed in the bonnet.

Cheers,
Steve

I'll send you pictures of the mount that comes with the car when I get the car. It's free standing right now (the mount that is) and supposedly an exact copy of what was on there - minus rust of course - so if I put a tape across it you'll get all you need.

Thank you!

Also, this site has another photo with a hood hinge modification to allow the bonnet to open 90 degrees.
