Looking at the September 2015 issue of Mustang Monthly, I saw a picture (page-70) of a '73 with what looks like a custom cowl in a factory hood. If I wanted to keep the steel hood, would this be difficult to do? Or should I start with a fiberglass hood and then have it modified with the additional cowl? The reason I am asking is because I am considering an engine combo that may not fit the factory hood yet I don't just want to cut a hole in it either. Thanks..

There was a person in I think Austria that put a boss 429 in a 73 and made his hood, it looked just like this one. It may be the same person.
