    For the engine bonnet hinge, I looked at Autpro and USMC butler build threads for some ideas, as well as some pictures of Murci-Me car.

    I cut the old rusted inch tubing out. I took an Audi A-4 hinge and modified it so it would mount in the holes in the OEM replica engine bonnet. The hinge set up works really well and the Bonnet goes up with out rubbing

    Not sure if I'm going to try to create a more OEM look like Auto pros but will wait until the bat wings go in to figure what to do

    happy Friday!

    The OEM engine bonnet is is about 2 2/16" to short.

    Time to cut and fiberglass! Multiple times!!

    Was up late last night fiber glassing. Got an early start today

    The top of the engine bonnet is 1/2 " wider at the top than the bottom. Added CSM to make the distance the same.

    Will need to cut the body to make the angle flow from the top of the engine bonnet to the body where the rear trunk is.

    The other issue is the angle on the body is some how different from side to side

    Had to increase the length of the OEM sized Replica bat wings.

    The bat wings that came with the REDO were pretty pitiful

    Laid out some string to check the lines from roof over the engine bonnet to the body in the rear.

    I was off by a 5/16 of an inch and finally figured out where. The two cut grooves in the body on the driver side are just 5/16 wider than the same two grooves on the passenger side. This made the engine hatch seem to narrow and wasn't lining up on the drivers side.

    Have to mull over my options

    Continued on the rear hatch. Made some adjustments to the hinge mounting

    Ground at least 1/4 of rage bondo that the PO applied and got the hatch to line up with the body on both sides

    The REDO's rear trunk lid needed a bit of cleaning up
