E30 "Slider Hood"

hey guys,
Check this out, this is the hood im fabricating for my E30. I call it the "Slider hood". It will use all the same mechanisms except once fully open the clamshell hood will have a small lever alowing it to drop like this using rollers and a bumpstop. My metal working guy is stoked, I even got him wanting to start a project E30 w/ this and a 350ci V8.

If you can pull that off with a clean install, props to you. A little advice, there's a kit that functions similar to this for early 90's hondas that could be modified a lot easier than custom bracketry. I don't have the company name, but I know it is a japanese import.

Yeah it will be fun. There really isnt much work that needs to be done, a few reinforcement plates, the bumpstop, and a couple cuts for the rollers to mount and clear right. We were thinking of just making a whole new fiberglass hood and starting from scratch. I should be really light too. My car is already pretty wild looking with the kit so I figure might as well make it original.

"Wild" is quite the word for it.

When I see your car I think "cookie cutter" and "rice"

Hell, your car is more or less the textbook definition of rice. Extravogant bodykit, no power to back it up.
