hood mod

ok you know how our 2003 hoods have 2 ridges in them (one on each side) has anyone filled in the middle with bondo and made it look similar to a powerdome hood? it wouldnt be that hard. just an idea.

oh you mean cowl induction?? BLAH. I think one of the greatest features of our trucks.....its that dip in the middle of the hood. I think it adds to that "muscle" factor.

You're not kidding. I couldn't believe how much more that thing weighed compared to my old metal hood.

Should be a power dome... I know what your talking about... but i like the little scoop in it...

You would have to really sand and fiberglass good so it didnt crack
