it weighs nothing ..almost
looks like a 70's chrome three hole spoke with foam rim with an average diameter close to our cars

I think it just might be for something like a formula 3000 race car

bolts on with any typical 70's three bolt steering wheel adapter horn switch cover combo you can find

weighs what feels like a pound .. maybe two , max

add the adapter horn bits and it would probably be double that at 3-4
Oh trust me, that's already been gutted as well. my car weighs 1950 without me in it

hopefully some rectangular headlight stickers isn't below their pay grade lol:

clear headlight covers and some chrome tape to draw the chrome light bezel edge line found on the non turbo z cars and no one would even notice the entire front end if you don't want 'em to

fake the lamps
fake the trim too

YEA !!!

an underside of the hood pic would be interesting..

my question is how did it ship and how was it packaged??

and how long between ordering it and receiving it - or at least knowing it was ready to ship ??

(I want the charger front end , hood , back bumper and the daytona dash)
Sorry it took so long. here's a picture of the hood underneath.

ahhh .. I am so frustratingly encouraged now .. thanks for the update on your project !!



and I'm really looking forward to seeing it go together



not sure how you would think of attaching your front clip but I've figured I'd skin my fenders while still on the car



take the nose off and cut the tops , leaving enough to fit inside the top of the fiberglass fender

leave the inner support for the dogleg and very bottom of fender where it mounts to the rocker , for now

and cut down along the front corner where the nose bolts on , leaving for now the edge the nose bolted to



this keeps everything still enclosed from the rad cradle sides to the insides of each fender skin in the front corners

- and leaves a strong support knowing the fender's eventually gonna get leaned on , hard



two top strips , the brace drilled like cheese and the front inner fender "pans" can't weigh much and might get a lot done , well



and if your front end is on straight now it should help get the new one on straight even if you only end up using the fender bits for alignment as you work



now I'm thinking I could maybe actually get my hood project done while it's still nice and warm - outside , in the backyard away from everything of value



I found an exaggerated cowl scoop for a new style vette with some serious ventilation for the rad area at the front - big enough to almost be an entirely new center section of the charger hood



it's stupidly tall but I only want the top surface and part of the top most rise of the "cowl" shape to make a double layer center that I can then add my 3" mini old style pro stock dodge snorkel scoop on top of .. and make it feed to the original filter location at the end of the head - instead of the typical effort to put a big cone filter on the inner fender and get a huge pipe from it to the turbo



so think panel filter and tube more or less down from the hood to the turbo



-have a brand new discontinued accell foam filter that is almost zero resistance

bonus - I don't have to make room for the filter in my little L body if I put it up on top of the hood , sorta

I know it won't be light but better than the dead weight do nothing shelby hood



lol , yeah I did say snorkel scoop .. but it's a cute little "to scale" one for my car

(ha and after I posted last night I found a T/A scoop for a new challenger , a real mopar one , dirt cheep to boot - so forget little "prostock" scoop
That's a whole lot of words, we just simple folk here, LOL

a straight rigid , one piece airdam for your shelby charger .. priceless - and possibly marketable
being they're into limited production odd ball stuff something with a small market group is what they cater to - if they know it's there I'd presume
No problem. give them a call you'd be surprised what a phone call can do!

I have one of the hairyglass hoods for Charger/O24. It is extremely light and rigid for thin glass.

Yeah I put better gears in it too. 9's shouldn't be a problem now once I get it back up and going.

Yeah, I was actually talking to the driver they said they're doing away with their storage places because it's so ridiculously expensive. that's why they just get stuff immediately delivered.

Regular fiberglass, the stuff is super sturdy too
