Thanks Dale That is what I've been looking for is one that is close , But all I have found they are asking $350 or more for the hood then more for the dash . Not in a big hurry to get this done as I have another buggy project ahead of this one
so I will continue to look
I have a lead on another body so maybe that hood will work

Ok I picked up a real manx hood today great price , but it does not fit ether
This one is a bit bigger so it could be cut and sectioned I think, now the question is do I cut a real manx hood ?
I could maybe cut the body at the font and push it out so the hood drops down into place , it may need to go 1 inch
I will try and get some pictures of what I'm thinking for any help I can get

ok cutting the body did not work the manx hood still would not sit down in the between the fenders corretly
I just can't cut a real manx hood , I'm sure someone out there will need one
So I guess it will be the wire mesh form way of doing this
