Re: Cowl hood the right way

I noticed in one of your pics the right wiper arm looked like it's not there. I have a regulation Reflexxion cowl hood, and had to add limiting struts to the hood so it wouldn't open so far and hit the right wiper post. Does your hood do the same? And excellent work - your hood looks great!

I'm sure you know the stock hoods have two hole you can prop the rod into. The 2nd one puts the hood near verticle and barely rubs the wiper but they both clear so you can pull the engine with the hood on. I tried to take that into account when I built it anyhow. Thanks for the nice words!

I wasn't aware of this. I'll have to check my XJs to see.

The 2nd hole wasn't enough hood opening to get in there and work comfortably w/o creasing your gourd on the hood. The limiting struts allow the hood to open about midway between the two prop rod holes, and I have plenty of room now.
