So as I am working towards getting the shit bucket roadworthy I don’t think my carborator will clear the hood without opening it up. I have not yet determined what I will do in the long run ie scoop or just an exposed carb air filter etc. or if someone will give me an air grabber set up (my prefernce). I am wondering if I can even register the car here in AZ without the hood until I figure it out. I am thinking no for no good reason. I don’t see it stipulated anywhere.
