Hi friends just to update you all the work on chevy is going well.. Mechanicals all done.. car running well just completed a 50 kms trial run in afternoon around 35 degree and temp did not go over 90. runs smooth.

Need help with selection and procurement of the hood material. I dont want to use the Thar jeep type material commonly available.

HI,
The Car seems to have come out real well and it deserves the best. I suggest that since hood also a long term useage part of the car, you go in for a more suitable material. Bill Hirsch is a fairly popular supplier and has a wide range of colors to go with the paint and seats colors you finalize. Mebbe a lil more home work on the net will lead to similiar suppliers. Getting them across is not difficult with couriers handling customs formalities too.
Good luck on the project, hopetosee the completed chrvy pics soon
