"Hell from Pennsylvania"! Welcome Tim, Hell-ashsley Nice. About time you joined. We like your work. The only thing you're missing is a hood prop rod. I have the one that came with my Harwood hood if you're interested. Enjoy, Ole', Bob.
Hi,
Yes your right, I made my own gas shocks for it and man I didn’t like the force I needed to close the hood, worried about the fiberglass hood breaking in half! Do you have any pics of the prop rod? I’m interested!

Hi Tim & all; Well I got out into the garage, located prop rod. Cleaned off years of dust. The zinc or cadmium plating looks to be in good condition as the rubber tip. But the plastic parking tab is broken, epoxy maybe? Also possible to get a new tab from Harwood. I did call them today to see what this rod sells for. Not sold separately, but I'll bet they would sell or send you a new parking tab? Anyway I asked the guy what the rod would sell for if It wasn't include. He said about $25 bucks. So with shipping so high now days how does $25 to you door sound? That will leave me about $10? Thanks for lookin', Ole' Bob.

I'm really liking everything done on the Olds. But you HAVE to tell me about the Cougar in the foreground of the second picture. I spotted that right away.

Bob, I’ll take it! How do you want me to pay? We can do the rest of the business over private messaging. And thank you very much for the pics and offer

Thank you very much! That particular picture was taken at my father in laws girlfriends house. It’s her car and it’s in very bad shape. Was the x husbands and you know how that goes
