you wanna make a trip to columbus when my brother and dad finally get there act together and put one on the 80?biltogo said:I studied the various hood suppliers before buying. I believe that Ecklers (my supplier) produces the best hood.
His fits the original hood perimeter, whereas mine is the long style which eliminates the wiper door assembly.
I also learned many things while fitting mine. Had I to do it again it would be much easier to accomplish.
#1-file smooth and level the hinge attach areas on the inner fender line.
#2- make spacer shims for the hinges right away.
#3- work the flush fit first, then the margin gaps.
Other than that, piece of cake:cheers:
