Think I like the idea of cutting then bonnet bulge just need to locate a steady hand lolD366Y wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 8:00 amI'm not sure how it's been done but I've seen a few people do it - I'd imagine if you cut straight through the bulge you could just stick some gauze/mesh or similar on the inside of the bulge to catch any crap from going straight into the top of the carb?Mrbaboon1985 wrote: ↑Sat Oct 10, 2020 4:13 pmI do like that, I wonder where they got the vents for the bulge or whether that's just cut straight into the bulge with no cover inside?
Something else I've seen is cutting the whole bonnet bulge off and adding in some metal to increase the height and leaving that gap as well at the same time - have a look at this link https://www.fordcapriforum.com/forum/vi ... &start=140
Cut the bulge off, put some metal in to make it higher but kept the same shape, just taller to fit the V8 in. You could theoretically do a similar thing but rathe than fill in to increase the height, just leave it open to air?
