    Mine is a 4" cowl bolt on hood made by Harwood, anything larger than this is usually a pin on hood which is a pain on a street car.

    I have a 2.5" steel Goodmark hood. IMO they dont look right without the "COWL INDUCTION" emblems like the original cowl hoods had.

    Thank you to all that have posted some pictures of your rides, by the way your cars look awsome now i must decide on what size i will go with, i'm thinking 3" or 4".
    Once again thank you everyone for helping me out.

    I put a 2" fibreglass cowl on mine. I like the way it looks, not too bold, and lots of clearance. I got mine from glasstek. It's worth mentioning that there was almost no body work required which was nice. Sorry didn't have anything more recent with the paint done.
