My goal is to run a full hood - not just the top like some people do, top and side skirts. Was hoping my model A hood would fit, but it looks like its 1 to 1.5 inches too short. A custom one is going to cost me $750, and that stresses me out a wee bit. I can probably pull top of radiator towards firewall a bit and fill that gap and not be too noticable, but the bottom will be more difficult. Probalby going to have to suck it up and buy a new hood.

Don't see full hoods often on these. I like it because A) It'll be different and make my car stand out from all the other half million model A hotrods on deuce rails. And B) it reminds me of the old bonneville salt flat racers.
