That looks really nice! What was the cost to line a hood? Now that I see this I want to do it to my trucks.
I cost about $171 total: 3 rolls of Dynamat Hoodliner material. Each roll is 32"x54"x0.75 thick.
Here's the summit racing link to the material i used:

I still owe the thread a mapping of how I applied the material to the hood.

Another dog bone replacement. This one was the upper rear. Aft end came out pretty easy but the front fought me for a couple of days. Got the old one out this morning In 17 degree weather and in a gravel driveway! New one went it pretty easy. Got a couple of new ones awhile back as surplus. Had to rotate the axle back a little to get it lined up. Realigned and tightened everything up. Just need a couple of cotter pins, I’ll use stainless steel, and then take her for a test ride. Probably rebuild this one and another I have sometime in the future.

Some of those cotton jacket supply and relay lines are looking a little crusty. They will start to leak thru themselves before long if not slowly doing it now

Work on my M816.

I exchanged a rear wheel cylinder. No issues after. Need to add back to spares.

I have been fighting the truck not wanting to start. I replaced the control box and truck seems happy now. Need to add back to spares.
