Personally I have never seen hood skins but then again I am far from knowing everything about these cars and what's out there for parts. Hopefully Don from Ohio Mustang can better answer your question.

If there are hood skins out there I assume it is very similar to installing door skins. Here is a link I found to give you an idea what's involved:

Thanks for the help Mike - always a well of helpful information!

I believe that Hoss wants to use one of his seven hoods as a skin and another of his seven as a frame. In the meantime he will be able to paint all the unprotected inner metal.

Document the steps for us Hoss and update us on how it all come out. We will look forward to your success.

Yeah I want to use one of my locking NASA hoods but the one that has the best underside and allotted airflow has a little top damage. And they all need the inside cleaned to many rust flecks bouncing around. Trying to do what I can in my small garage until weather gets nicer to do body work
