Hood scoop is finally on and looking pretty decent if I don't say so myself :lol:
Only one little issue, but it's my own fault :redface:
I didn't have the hood scoop made up before I started the turbo conversion, so I had to guess where the intercooler would sit.
Turns out the intercooler is 45mm too far forward and I designed the hood scoop to sit on the edge of the raised section on the bonnet.
So there's a small gap along the leading edge, but I'll put in a profile rubber to fill in the gap :thumbup:

Dustin, so nice to see your Patrol changing into a one of a kind.
Thanks Michael.
It's really satisfying to do the work yourself and see the project take shape. It almost makes up for the long hours and headaches :lol:

Wait until you see what I've got planned for the bar work ! :wink:
The front bar must go, because "chrome won't get you home".
I'm still playing with designs, but it's going to be something interesting.
Now I just need some finances and a pipe bender :thumbup:
