back in the day there was a van getting around with a full perspex bonnet i remember seeing it on here but i have know idea what it was called or a link

it could be done but i don't like the chances of it lasting in the sun for to long but it would be different that would be sure

i would be thinking of making one from lexan its like perspex but a bit softer and a bit more UV stable

And numerous vans and street machines have had Perspex windows in their bonnets, Stargazer and Evil Dreaming were two as well as Stubbsys Malibu.
There use to be a HX GTS in Wagga years ago with a Perspex box over it's tunnel ram, some of the Wagga locals might know who owned it?
Yellow HX GTS, US racers and HX400 number plates.

Post  Sam62 on Mon 14 Oct 2013, 8:27 pm

Thanks Guy's I knew someone would know something about them,
The next step is to find out if someone that would make me one,
( I was thinking the shape of Garry's bonnet scoop.... groupA )

I don't think Gas & water go together that well &&&& Carby's through the bonnet with SOME coper's.
(its incase someone goes over the bonnet & gets hook on one) What about the bumpper bar & the windscreen hey,


Cheers Sam

Rowan Wilson's "Witch Queen" had a cool Perspex scoop over the tunnel ram back in the mid 70's.

I was just reading "vanwheels" no 10 and Fire Truck has a Perspex dome over the tunnel rammed motor. There's also a black LTD fronted Ford with a Perspex cover over the air filter too.

Pretty common when you start looking for them.

The group A scoop will look good, but you'll have to cut the entire piece out of the bonnet, or you'll just be looking at a small hole with a lot of painted bonnet under the scoop.
If you cut the whole section under the scoop it will look great, a bit like Stargazer, but a scoop rather than a window.

Do IT!!!!!! thumbsup

Exactly!!!!

That's why you should do it. I reckon a Perspex group A scoop would look cool, and show off the engine below. And you could leave your bonnet shut at shows, but people could still see the engine (which of course you would have spent a fortune on chrome bits) What a Face
