    I had one and sold it years ago for 5 bucks. Now I'm looking for another junk hood to make an awning over the entrance door to the garage. Any flat fender hood will do but I'd kind of prefer a 3B hood. I can meet you at the Great Willys Picnic in June to avoid trying to ship something like this. Long shot I know but, WTH.

    That looks a lot cooler than I thought it would.

    It's fun to stand under it when it's raining. Makes a nice noise...

    Now I know what to do with the spare CJ5 hood I have in the barn. Cool idea.

    I have been thinking about making a couch for the shop out of the rear end of the tub from the Jeep that hood came off of. I could cut it down to size, and weld the cowl section onto it for a back rest.

    I used Jeep hinges with lag bolts. The hood is removable and can be opened just like a Jeep hood...

    I've had 2 generous offers. I think I will have one soon from a local-ish member. Thanks gents. I'll post pics when it's up. Might not be real soon but....

    Cary, that looks cool. Also heavy which is why I'm going with a flatty hood. Thanks for posting.
