so busy working on a few things for Zack ...
he asked me to install the hood skin I build .. and make it work .
some of you may know , we lost the underside of the actual mould in a fire about 12 years ago , and because of shipping costs .. (total cost delivered ~ $800.00 for the hood) I don't know to many people interested in an 800 dollar hood for there Toyota , so I never rebuilt the moulds .

anyway .. with the truck in my shop , I really wanted to satisfy his request .. I still don't know if it's going to work or not , but I'm gonna try

so started cutting the skin off










we'll see what happens .. as I told Zack , no promises on this part




Zack also wanted MAX protection , while we had it stripped , so floor completely scuffed , and ready for some POR 15 .




also , got the rears fit

so , just to let you know , the original hood needed to be replaced anyway . Zach wanted our FRP hood skin , so I said I would try . I knew there were a lot of variables to make it work , but I thought I would try .
It could still be done , but because time is money , and this is how I make my living , I had to "call it" ... this typically is how a production mould is made .. lots of trial and error , major amounts of time , until you get a perfect piece . I don't have the "billable" time on this , and I told Zack , if it didn't work I wouldn't charge the time ... anyway
new hood



also , doors cured , time to install and trim the gaps









also .. taking extra step and prepped the underside of the hood , and got it seam sealed

putting Zack's rig back together
I think Zack painted the black on the grill already , but because of his drive , lots of bugs , so I cleaned the carcases off + the argent part was not that nice , so I taped , sanded and painted it





lots more "little" things , but I'm not going to bore you with all those
Zack will have a CD of pics .. lots of pics .

doors going together
