    @SurrealOne Did you just get the material or did it come cut like the guy says he does. Also what are the decal options because that looks really awesome.

    As I understand it there are pre-cut options for OEM hoods. Since my hood is not OEM I bought a 6ft x 4ft panel of the material after taking some measurements and made my own liner. You should call Gonzalo ("Gonzo") rather than email him as he seems to be more responsive to calls. Ask him about decal options if you have something in mind. That's what I did ... and he happened to have the decal I wanted.

    • Used that pattern to cut a 6ft x 4ft piece of aircraft firewall material (from to fit my hood
    • Used 3M #80 spray adhesive to apply the material to the hood
    • Cut an opening for the port to hood's cowl
    • Removed overspray with Goo Gone Extreme
    • Applied an autobot decal
    • Used a heat gun to set the decal since the application was in three dimensions and the material to which it had to adhere was not solid
    • Reinstalled my hood
    • Found myself a bit surprised that this took all day

    Here's a photo of the finished product just prior to hood reinstallation:

    Ok @SurrealOne, I'll call him I was looking for the tahoe logo like it looks like on the moulding, a chevy bowtie and maybe Gm truck or Chevrolet all caps in 90's style.

    Today I ordered the following for my OBA project: rotolock fittings, an intake filter, an OEM York dipstick, an oil return kit, two 1/4" MPT universal couplers, and 2 rubber covers for those universal covers. I think that about does it for parts. (Finally!)

    Now I need to figure out what kind of rigid tubing to use and how much of it I'll need. I also need to find a place that makes flexible metal hose to specification, as I need it for three different locations in the project.
