    Default Very tip of the hood (repair)

    Hi all. Can someone please post a couple of pictures of the very tip of the nose on the hood to show how much of a defined point it comes to, and whether the point ends at a crease that then travels down the front lip of the hood? I hope this makes sense. Id like to see pictures of the very tip of the hood from the top, front, and underside to see how the metal was supposed to be folded over. My body shop is fixing a dimple at the tip of the hood and I want to make sure everything is bent back and creased properly.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Here are some pictures from my car (70 240Z). I realized after I took them that you might want pictures from a lighter colored car as mine is nearly black on that part of the car. My car has at least three different colors on it, not counting the cartoon characters pebbles and bam bam.

    Hi Mike. Thank!. Hmmm. So your second picture it looks like everything comes to a pretty defined point, but is that just the reflections? The rest of the pictures seem to look like it's more rounded off. I can't really tell. Below are pictures of my hood after there repair (right now they are blocking down a coat of rust-defender before it goes in for primer). I think I will feel better about the repair after I see the car in a uniform color but I don't know. I seem to remember the hood from my old 75' came more to a point.

    Here are some more pictures. I tried to duplicate the angle of your picture. I noticed looking at the hood point that to me the bottom seems to have more of a point on it than the top does on my car. To me looking at your picture your hood looks like that too.

    It's a rounded point - for sure.

    You can see the definition pretty well in the black, green and white Z cars from the pictures I posted here: Caffeine and Octane March 2013 | Fiddling With Z Cars. Be sure to let your browser zoom in.

    Dang'it Guy, every time I see your cars, I second guess paining my spook. Seriously you should open a museum. One day I hope the paint on my old gal looks as great as your 901 silver baby

    Ok so my conclusion is that it looks to be more rounded off on the vertical edge rather then coming to a straight crease.

    Diseazd you have no idea how many times I've referred to your flickr gallery the last couple of months when I need reference photos for my restoration. Your collection is truly magnificent.
