I have a spare hood up at my local paint shop in town and was wondering if someone could photoshop it on my car so I can get an idea of how it will look on a notchback with flushmount headlights.

I have a few pictures of my car, not sure which one would work the best, but I'd appreciate anything anyone can mock up for me.

For the people that have had a shop do the fiberglassing, etc, what kind of pricing did they normally charge when you take them the hood and scoop and fiberglass it in.

I think it's hard to see on these angles, (and I'm just a novice)...

It should help vent the air especially in town for the fan and get that hot air out. Should work better for higher speeds on the highway so there is not a lot of light front end anymore. It's going on a spare hood so I don't ruin my original one.

Nice car! You can build your own pretty easily. I've done several, and its not very hard. I cut into the hood with a Skil circular saw and separated the inner skin from the outer. Then made some side fillers from broken door skin and glued it in with Fusor 114 adhesive/filler. The Fusor adhesive is $35-$40, as I recall. Be careful when cutting, that you don't cut into the underside structure of the hood. With either of these Warber style , the hood structure remains intact but the radiator shroud could require some minor trimming, depending on the location of your scoop. The front trunk bulkhead stays intact and the weatherstrip seals correctly. Take the money you saved from doing it yourself and have the body shop paint it for you.
