Yeah, seem the only difference once the fenders and rad support are swapped is the panel on the bottom of the windshield with the heater intake vents is way taller, but I have a plan for that.

Might just rivet a piece of aluminum across to make a bit of a scoop, or cut a piece out of the other style hood and weld it on to make a scoop.

might go with the first option due to time then just redoe it legit and repaint the hood later on.

I have less then a month to get it painted so it's protected enough to store it outside. I'll be starting school soon. Legit job means finacial stability to redoe the cheap rush job I'm doing now, haha.

The only problem is the edge of the hood hitts the high part of the cowl, so the hood needs to be clearanced along the edge nearly a quarter inch or else the hood barely opens and would leave a very noticeable scrape in the fresh paint in the cowl.

The scoop would be very low and flat in profile aswell, it will hopefully NOT be obnoxious

I AM WIDE OPEN FOR IDEAS TOO

The bolts are lined up to the position that the stock hood was in and the edge of the hood looked fairly lined up to the tip of the fender, but I will try to adjust it further for sure.

Ok, tried your suggestion and adjusted the hood as far forward as possible, it still hits it, but if I elonggate the hinge hole a touch more, it should clear.
