Boser Hood DIY?
 
I am going to be turning my stock hood into a boser hood tonight. :excited:

Any interest in seeing a DIY of this? If not I wont bother taking the time to shoot the pics, if yes, let me know and I will take photos of everything... Post up!

How are you going to do it in one night....doesn't this require quite a bit of metal fab?

I really wouldn't suggest just doing this as a DIY in your garage... i don't see how the finished product could possibly look good unless you really know what you're doing.

Just my two cents

I'm not doing it in one night, it will be over the entire weekend, just starting it tonight. Cardboard templates have already been made, and the metal bought as well as the paint, to repaint the entire hood.

I am doing this with help from a friend who has done body work for years. He has everything that a traditional shop would have.

So we'll see how it turns out, if it sucks then I just buy a new hood. O well...

Just thought I'd throw it out there

No one cares for your negativity. Thanks.

+1 Not everyone pays a shop to do all the work/modding.

Can't wait to see a DIY. Any type of DIY is a good DIY lol. Experiment for us, I think it will look good!

I'm tired of seeing "recommendations to go to a professional" for everything shy of pumping gas into the car.

:werd: to both.

Chase, not sure if it's just me, but you've been really negative lately. You're usually the one to help out members. :dunno:

To the OP:
I'm pretty excited to see how you do this! And if it turns out bad, who cares, you would still learn a lot! :thumbsup:

Stanc3 11-14-2008 05:30 PM

looking forward to it...:thumbsup:



I've always thought of molding kamei eyelids to a facelift hood for my sedan, but bodywork is not my forte, so I would've had to have a shop do it...

props for the DIY, keep us posted..

whoa whoa whoa... i can understand the comments about being more optimistic.... That said, if this was some 18 year old kid who was going to try and do something like this in their driveway, I think all of us would agree it would likely turn out with disastrous results. It was not until some time after my comments that the OP mentioned he was going to have a friend, who is a body shop professional, help him with the work.
