You should consider removing the reinforcement ribs on the front underside of the hood.

Daytona hoods didn't have them, and they can cause a clearance issue when you close the hood.

 Twocents
  Its a thing that's called pre fitting to make sure that all panels clear.  Good thing I have built a few cars in my day!!!


Cheers will check

Do you guys not know what PRE ASSEMBLING  and PRE FITTING is!  Only a complete idiot would go as far as I have gone without pre hitting ALL panels to make sure that every panel fits and lines up the way they should.  As I said before not my first restoration!!!!

do YOU know that the comments are to help make the car as accurate as possible? stop taking every comment as a dig against you.

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.

That maybe so but one can't help but think it is criticism as to when the comments are made being this far along in the project.  With myself knowing that panels fit as they should with all aftermarket components in place.  So if there are support ribs to be cut out then also why does no one post pictures of this rather than just making comments if they are experts on these cars.

i can't speak for others, but i think your work is very nice. i'm possibly the most anti-clone member here, but that doesn't take anything away from the craftsmanship involved in building one, and this will be a beautiful car when finished. the one thing i would have done differently, be it as the owner or the restorer, would have been to looked at original cars beforehand. 99% (or more) of the population would never have a clue about the hood differences, so don't sweat it. i get your take on the comments, but i still think you are missing the intent of most of them

The plastic cover has been taken off, wing is painted, think now it's time to put it back together.  I have either polished the chrome to look like new, or got new trim pieces.  Getting really excited the end of the build is coming close to being finished.

The red stripe/wing is a good choice.
