    1979 pace car hood. Functional cowl induction. It's heavy but looks so good. I do need to seal the air cleaner better to it.

    What mods did you have to do to make it fit?

    Edit- No need to explain... I have an idea of what was done...

    Interior/dash is out. I know some of purists on the site may not be too excited about stripping out a nice stock interior but this car was staring to fall apart at the seams and needed to be tied together. Really, the only thing stock left was the interior anyway.

    Floor prepped. Some cracks and a little rust will be repaired.

    Just a thought on the hood- i used the original air cleaner base, and extended it with sheet steel until it was 1/4 inch off of the hood. (Easy to do with a hole in the center!) and then used a really good butyl door gasket as a seal. It worked out well.

    Thats a great idea. .... I see there was quite a bit of mods to get the blower in there.
