Update from today.....sorry dial-uppers.

I spent some time in the shop today. Here's what the induction fiberglass looks like...

As it would look on the engine without the hood in place. What purpose does it serve? It makes me happy! :D Also, it mates up to the front hole in the stinger hood and provides a source of cool outside air (not Ram Air).

After bonding to the underside of the hood. Battery used for one hour to ensure good bond.

Hey Bob.
Why is the innerside of the induction red and underside black??
And not the other way around.

Because I'm crazy. :D

The real reason is that I want to see the red insides peeking through the hole in the hood (black stripe) when the hood is closed, but when the hood is open, I want the black underside to contrast with the red of the hood.

This is what the induction piece looks like installed to the 1967 big block hood.

It was a Chevrolet across-the-counter racing part, for the 1967 big block hood, that I purchased sometime between 1968 and 1970.

Thanks, Richard. One of the best things I like about the finished car is the difficulty in noticing the new fender design.

From the side, the car looks completely stock. From the rear, there's a huge difference.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. I'm impressed by all the nice Corvettes in the Netherlands (Nederland, Holland). :wink:

I apologize for not participating more, but being unilingual is a handicap.

Cheers.
