My 01/04 edge hood and some progress...

I finally had a good day to work on my project truck. I cut the front off of the 01 edge hood so it would fit my 04 grill and started doing a little body work...well ended up being paint work...lol

Yeah I am real happy with the results, gotta admit I was wondering if I was going to ruin the hood. I made 3 cuts to gradually get it there
