Does anyone have pictures and the dimensions of where to trim the underwood reinforcement to clear the cable activated throttle body? I am going to put a new hood on my car and I want to trim it before I paint it.
Thank you, Gil

Thanks for the picture. Am I correct that you were able to leave the edges of the reinforcement intact?

Yes. I cut at the support part's highest part from the hood surface. This gave me room to make the cut and left it some structural strength.

Here's mine!  I made a small backing plate to "box" in the piece cut out.

Did you glue in the plate? Could you give me the dimensions of the size of the cut and how far it is away from the front support that the hood latch bolts to? I really appreciate it.

Here is what I inherited. Precision scalpel work.... (bought mine as a work in progress).

LS1 throttle body has been shaved a bit as well.

(First pics I have ever tried to upload... hope it helps ....)

Tape measure is 'hooked' onto one of the hood latch bolts.

Thank you for the information. Now I can trim the hood to the correct size and paint it when I paint the rest of the engine compartment.
