    I was able to get a bit more work done today, it is now almost ready for filler and then to start its new life. After I get it all dialed in with the filler, I can start making a mold from it and then, a glass hood. I also had the first look of it, from a distance and was oddly satisfied with the look of it. I am still debating on cutting the center support out and taking maybe a 1/4" off of it, bringing the crown of the rear down a bit.

    I guess this means, it is officially summer. Needless to say, I lasted about 30 minutes in the garage before giving up.

    When you get tired of trying to fix the dents/warpage/how did I do that spots, with filler, you make a ghetto hammer and dolly setup. There will still be a good amount of filler used, obviously, there is no way around that unless you're a metal finishing prodigy. All though, there will be a lot less now.

    Well, it's no show piece and, I am not starting over so, I'll just have to live with its raggedness. Once I finish getting it smooth, it will be time to make a mold off of it. Putting primer down, really shows off all of the flaws in it.

    I don't think the flaws are terrible. I'd still be proud of it.

    So, I told myself I am going to accept it and just start making the mold but... I went back out and started to smooth the hood out some more.

    I guess, you really do need to learn when to call it a wrap. This thing won't get any better with out new, proper tools and more space that I do not have. So, it's time to make a mold off of this and call it a day.

    They say, Jason, if it's a street car you need a stock gas tank. To that I say, I don't trust zip ties and hose clamps holding a gas tank in the car.
