Bad day!!! My friend and I were putting new brake pads on the front, pretty much all done and was looking at the engine when she shifted and fell off the stand landing on the rotors. The only thing that happened was the hood slammed shut and the prop rod went to the outside putting a small ding on the side of the hood and chipping off some paint on the top side area. Thank god nothing else happened below!! I shit my pants. After getting it up and the wheels back on everything is okay. So now I'm either repainting the hood or getting a fiberglass one with a scoop. Found a 70's hood with the scoop and working on a price as we speak and ordered the flake I need. Lesson learned, watch out for soft black top in the sun and always have the stands resting on the frame, I had mine about an inch from it with the jack stand below holding it. Yeah yeah I know stupid. At least we weren't underneath it and my lower spoiler didn't get ruined. I guess I'll have to make it bad ass now with a scoop!!

Wouldn't be too bad but it's all in metal flake, the only thing I can do is get a bitchin hood and make it look better than it was!

Talk about dumb, here I is.... 2 days ago, I had my panel out for the first time in a couple of weeks. Was just a quick stop at the gas station, (460s love fuel). As I was leaving, I felt a bumping and heard a thumping. After a few minutes of looking underneath I realized the critical nature of the lowly cotter pin. Knowing I had installed one, I realized I had not properly bent it in place. The castle nut on my driver's side upper ball joint had backed off, causing it to lift up and was riding on the inner lip of my rim. Fortunately nothing was ruined but my wife's morning. I was able to jack it up and reinstall a new castle nut.......and properly install the cotter pin....could've been ugly at 80 mph!

Update, talked to the guy that owns this vintage fiberglass hood and we worked out a price. I'm sending out the money order tomorrow, he's also a vanner on my facebook. Hopefully within the next month she'll be on Mother's Nightmare!
