    Hello All, I need to get the opening cut in the my hood for a Hemi style scoop and I would like to ask if someone would be kind enough to either measure or, if you already have the location and dimensions, to share them with me.
    And for those who have done it already how did you make the cut air saw, die Grinder, jig saw etc. Should the supports be attached at the end of their cut? Did you tack weld epoxy, etc .

    Thank you all in advance

    Lloyd

    This link is the wrong year but if you read down in the description Hemi Eddy advertises for the 64-65 Hemi template also, might have to contact him as I could not find it on his ebay store.
    Bought mine from Eddy and it was a really nice template. I would let you use mine but I gave my word to Eddy not to share his work after I used it. Pretty inexpensive for something as important as cutting up a hood though. Good luck, :thumbsup:

    No one out there have the dimensions of the hole or pictures from the inside of their hood.
