In the first pic the fender is hanging. In the last it is partially secured.

Mounting the thing is a paux de' deux (dance for two, or just "dance" in French).

Meaning that you have to work everything at the same time to sort of work it into it's proper place.

THis fender being one of Dr Yeng's Chinaman fender company finest does not fit properly, but it's close. And close is good enough for hand grenades and squareD

Bolts are going in everywhere, Heck I even bolted some things to the wall just to keep the momentum going strong!

At this point the fender and wheel well which is integral to the strength of the assemble and likely the whole front end is all bolted in!

After remounting the power supply cable, I started utilizing some of those nifty clip things I picked up from RedNeck's hot tip source

Next the errant transmixer dip stick end was bolted home to Dr. Yeng's fender inside. I hope the weight of the dipstick does not cause the fender to fold in on itself

Next up, time to hang FrankenSnorkel

I used the one sided foam tape developed for truck bed toppers to create a gasket for the snorkel body

I used a few 1/4" studs to literally "hang" the snorkel onto the fender while I figured out what a lousy choice it was to use 1/4" rivnuts. I ended up pulling the snorkel back off, then drilled out the whole bottom row and used a screw/nut combo to hold that ugly thing onto Dr. Yeng

I had a whole passel of stainless 1/4" machine screws to choose from

Ever notice or wonder about that stubby pipe sticking out of the bottom of the snorkel fender piece?

Probably not...

Well, it is designed to act as a sump to collect water and vent it to the outside while keeping outside stuff from going up inside

It works like this:

The pile obscuring the jap maple outside has gotten smaller (Yippee!)

But I couldn't find the new marker light fender lenses...hmmm

So I stuck one of the old cloudy ones in the hole and installed some new LED bulbs

So, speaking to the BPS
(Black Panel Sect)
I mentioned I am thinking of painting the raised portion of the hood flat black
Every aircraft I ever flew (I think) had that section of the nosecone painted black
They do that to make us pilots look cool!
But you think about it and, heck, we don't need any props!
Know what I mean?!
OK, sorry, I was all amped up on some psychedelic drug and was trippin' for a minute there
Well, I made that up too...Just full of it (coffee) this morning, eeh?

OK, what was I talkin' about?
Oh yes, BPS people and black hoods

So anyway, I am thinking of painting the raised portion of that hood is a flat black to reduce reflectivity into your eyes of blinding light cast from various angles, and it helps when using night vision devices as well.
It also makes me look cool, just like those sleek lookin' jets and ugly helicopters did all those years!

So, even though I hardly ever pay attention to a SDU (Single DOT Utterance) I'm askin' what do you say?

I like the idea. Since it is very hard to get a clean line with tape unless you hide it with pinstripe, which wouldn't befit a project like yours, I would say paint the entire hook flat black with the vent panels OD to tie it together so people don't think you just forgot, or recently replaced the hood or its unfinished.

I think you should use a tiny, like real tiny, paint brush, and paint fake carbon fiber strands across the entire hood. That might make you look cool..............might.

Never mind, just paint it black.

...still lovin' that frankensnorkel. That sucker is cool, 'specially all painted up real nice!!

Two thumbs up on flat black!  My AAR Cuda' had that stock, and I never suffered from glare in my eyes from the front! (Some shinny lights from behind but you just flip up the mirror and take evasive action.....or pull over and find your license)  ;)

Just the hood, or go all the way out to edge of fender!

that's the point of the little flapper mike, the air movement will remove the moisture and dirt.

I have had those on every vehicle I ever operated except for me tracked launcher.  during our daily PMCS we had to flick the nipple and watch how much if any dirt came out.  if nothing came out then we didn't have to remove the filter and clean it, but if there was a big enough cloud of dust then we would have to remove filter and clean it.

I'm with redneck, a clean line would be hard to achieve, do the whole thing.
And then you may have to do something with the Louvre panels.
Maybe carbon fibre...lol.

Well all the planes I've worked on have a flat painted surface but most are the same color and since your od is flat anyway i don't think it will help much except sucking in heat from sunlight. Speaking of hood temp i don't remember if you got a turbo blanket or not but i know a guy that knows a guy.

X3 for carbon fiber because… It adds 10% power!

He does have a blanket for the turbo, but I think he did it to keep it from getting cold, not to save his hood paint.....I think.

And if he doesn't come back to his thread, us DOTs will run amuck...a muck...ammuk...

Man, you people!

Hey I was werkin all day down at my other place...posted pics to prove it.

Busted up my tractor really well, so tomorrow it's off to the J-Deere store for some new hoseage...

Whole hood black, well honestly I was thinking about that. But I'm not so much into "looks" except when they serve a useful purpose.

Tomorrow...we'll see if it changes color tomorrow!

Reminds me of a story with my GMC about 35 years ago. There I was driving in the Saddleback mountains having a blast sliding around corners and getting air. As I was coming down into Lake Elsinore there was a VW bug coming at me. I braked (downhill), he braked and my truck stopped about 2 inches from his windshield and crushing the hood. As we ll got out to see the damage all the guy could say was "GMC"  which was on the grill. No one was hurt and guy just said, wish I had a beer and we did so all was good and we went on our ways.

Cool!

I think all black

Underside will remain OD Green

Reason is that masking off an area and blacking that out might suggest an attempt at style. Whereas all black is just business, and that is definitely what the truck is about so, all black it is.

Would already have been black, but have had three days of high humidity which doesn't work well with painting unless one can live with the cloudy white areas.

looks like tomorrow will be paint day for everything remaining

Got some things installed and some more painted

Almost have a truck coalescing in the garage!

Starting with the front fender flares or trim or whatever you call those things, I cleaned and sanded them both

They fit John American and Dr. Yeng's fender company replica of a decent American product.

While I was messing around the front, I set the grill in place just to see how much it is off from fitting

Surprisingly not very far at all!

Hmmm...Sure would be easier than building out that war wagon thing that I grudgingly agreed to possibly think about considering to build.

Not trying to sound non committal or anything like that, but scratch that chrome up some, lay down some OD green and I'm on to bigger and heavier things!

The hood hinges got installed. Remember those holes I drilled through them way back in part 2 I think?? Well here's how that works to align everything back up:

Next I sanded down the hood and shot two coats of Black semi flat with hardener, but I got a paint reaction in a couple of spots. So right now I don't know if it is a keeper or a redo??

Let it dry a couple days, scuff, and put a light fog coat on it. Should be alright. That happens when you don't let it tack up between coats!

It's now been a couple hours since shooting the two coats. I definitely had a reaction in about a dozen spots. I was thinking I'd let it set up then go over it with a block and some #600 wet paper, then as you suggest, dust on a top coat and see if I can get away with just blending in lieu of a repaint
