Hi Riggs74,

I'm looking to get the ACI L88 hood for my 1975. Was wondering do you know the height of the scoop from the top of the hood to the top of the scoop? Can you post or email me some pics of the hood? Also how was the install and fit?

Thanks

I haven't installed it yet, but I will get some photo as soon as I can for you. I've been busy with other things and haven't touched the car, I hope to soon.

Any one know of a good source to buy the straps from.

The rear geometry was designed that way. There is nothing wrong with your shafts or arms. The rear tires/half-shafts are not supposed to be rotated when "hanging down". The U-Joints are beyond their limit in this situation. That's the way it came from the factory.

If there's grass on the green, I gotta play the hole.

Hi RIGGS74,

Thank You for posting the pic of your new hood. Is there a chance I could ask if you could take some side pics of that gorgeous hood?


Thanks for all your help.
