67 SS hood photos needed
« on: October 08, 2021, 09:09:48 PM »
Ok I am putting this out there so we can try to get a CRG report on SS hoods finished up. What do we need?

67 SS396 hood (top and bottom views)

67 SS350 hood (bottom view) needs to be as early in the year as possible.

Thanks in advance!

 Aside from the 67 having no drain holes, there is another round hole that wasn't stamped where the hinge is bolted to the hood. I can take pictures from my 04B 67 when I get home next week.

Thanks Mike.

Yes there are several subtle differences.

I'm asking if there is a difference between 350 and 396. That's how I was reading the post.

Do you still want photos if the factory insulation is still in place?

Yes there is.

Need photos of top without inserts in place, and underside without insulation in place. The SS hood on my L35/M40 does not seem to be original or I would use that.

Do we have to wait for the report to find out ? :-) Under hood lamp location ?

What I should have said was Iíd say thatíd be one difference from early vs mid-late 67 SS hoods.

Well we canít for sure log all of the differences without pics. Under hood light - YES - that is one. But there are other differences under the hood.

There are a bunch of people that have spent a lot of time trying to log and document. The report was started and stalled maybe at least 5-6 times. Ed, I and others are trying to revive and complete it.

The easiest way is to show with pics. I had some but canít find them. Another CRG member had some on an old PC but has not been able to retrieve so far.
