Proto Type Rev. 1 IN HAND!

For those of you who didn't know, I've been working on a hood stack mounting system. It was put on the back burner for a while, due to other projects my managment needed me to do. Those are done, and it's back to the hood stacks. This is what's going on so far.

Well I have the first revision of the mounting plates in hand. These are just proto types, and not the material we will be using for finished product. This will give you an idea of what it will look like. Please feel free to leave any comments at all.

Bottom Mount Plate...there are already a few changes we will be making to this, but you get the idea.



Top Mount Plate...this is what everyone will see. Naturally we will make this a very eye pleasing piece.



Here they are side by side.



Here we have a sample flare sitting in the bottom mount. It's a nice fit, but we are wanting more of a lip. So a few minor changes are to be made here.



As you can see in this picture, we need to machine a few more thousands off of the Top Plate, so it will slide all the way down. The process of flaring made a slight egg shape. We are also looking at resizing the stack after the flare has been made.


So that's where we are at now. The next step is getting the body shop down the road here to cut us out a 12 X 12 piece of hood so we can add that into the fabricating process.

I also found out that the LONGEST piece of steel we can flare is 14". So the hood stacks we offer will not be any longer than that. We will probably offer a 14", and a 12" length.

As always PLEASE keep your comments and suggestions coming. This product is for you, so we want your feedback!
