The scoop would be an easy way to fill the hole. Cut the front open, or drill a bunch of small holes, and you turn it into ram air. Turn the scoop 180* and now you have an open louver to help move under hood air/heat.

Bill you have so many Jeeps it's hard for me to keep up with what you're doing!!

Nice rocks you found in the badlands. Yep I'm much younger than Scott, more agile too.

Hood scoop is the way to go unless you just want a stock looking hood then I'd fill it in.

The Badlands is only 1200 acres. There is a varied terrain, gravel,sand, and a mixture of both(its a old gravel pit, even at 57 I still like the full throttle assaults on the hills). A small rock quary, and mud. Its 2.25 hours from my house.
Mike, the hill climbs would really be fun in your Jeep.
Thanks for checking in, Bill

One thing I noticed about OLD people is that they tend to repeat themselves!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Hey, wheres my help on the hole in the hood and break in the top?

It wasn't the train, look again. I assume yours was a Lionel from the late 60's. Birthday or Christmas present?

Next week should be a restart on the YJ to CJ. Some room in the garage will open up. I'm also going to post the mounting of a used Meyer snowplow on my 83,7.

Well... I addressed the hood wa-a-a-a-ay back in the thread when you first brought it up. I asked you if you wanted it to look nice, or just plug the hole. You never responded. You probably didn't see it. Or you couldn't remember it! Because you're so old! But Mike gave you the best advice, IMO. Cut out the vents on the scoop and turn it around.

For the side of the top, I would pull it back into place. Clamp it up as well as you can. "V" out the crack with a grinder. Fill the crack with DuraGlas. Sand it smooth. Cover with one layer of 1 1/2 ounce mat. Then one layer of 3/4 ounce mat. Sand the edges smooth and use filler to blend. OR- you could just use a single layer of 1 1/2 ounce mat. It should be plenty strong, but I like to finish with a finer mat because it is easier to finish for paint. You would do the same thing on the inside. Make it long enough to reform the lip for the window. Trim/sand to shape after it kicks off. The final texture will be different from the rest of the top (no pebbly texture) but you could maybe blend it with some creative brush/roller work.

I knew there was something I wanted to do. I,ll go with the scoop. One of my concerns was the thickness of the glass,strength wise, its only 0.125".

I guess this means just on the inside wouldn't be strong enough. with just some resin on the outside. I'm thinking it wouldn't be flat. the top (without measuring it) isn't very thick. like the hood

Thnks, Bill

You could probably go with just glassing the inside, Bill, since it's only holding a piece of glass. V out the crack on both sides. Use the DuraGlas in the V. It looks like the lip is broken off too??

This is why Bill's wife won't let him wheel the Khaki Jeep. Every time he takes it out he tries to roll it over.

The lip isn't broken,its just some paint that makes it look that way.

Just making sure the boat motor still works.

I think they will have a bit of Elk sausage. Should be bringing home some mule deer and mountain whitetail.
