ok, so, back to work... Dont know how well you can see it, I used sharpie for the picture before, just for the contrast, but I used a scribe to mark the openings I needed to cut after clean up.

begining with the metal nibbler!
scribe 3.jpg
The metal nibbler eats the metal and craps out these little pieces...
illustrative purposes only! Do not do this on the carpet, or in the house for that matter, those little pieces of metal are sharp, and stepping on one could be rather painful. wear gloves, do this outside where you can clean it up, and wear shoes! I am not responsible for marital issues resulting from ignoring this paragraph!

Nom nom nom...
scribe 5.jpg

I still need to drill a starting hole (1/2 inch) in the opening for the hood latch, but the rest of this is really boring and time consuming.. not any excitement until I get to the next phase!

Definitely seems time consuming, but in the end it's worth the time!

after hours of metal nibbler, cussing, a blister or two, we are left with:

I still need to do some filing, sanding, and some minor shaping, but here is a rough test fit and how it will look when finished. I may leave it rough aluminum colored, or paint a satin black... undecided yet!
