Default Trying to find Ken Wilcox, LAT hood maker

I want to order a LAT hood
I have what seems like an old number from Doug Jennings, but some searches on Aerodyne came up with the identical address & number:

Kent Wilcox (Aerodyne Engineering)
1763 North Marshall Avenue
El Cajon, CA 92040
(619) 448-6700
I guess I'll call him...
Anyone buy a LAT hood from Ken recently?
Jan

Jan,

Try the CAT forum, more likely to get a hit. If you cant i belive Dale A also does high quality LAT hoods and Jeff Haworth in the UK, he may have sold a few stateside as stock to somone a fee years back.

Anyone buy one of these LAT hoods? Apparently, a large fabrication business in Florida is also making them.

Paul Scofield spent countless hours fitting his Dale's hood. One of his last posts about it on Facebook said "If you're thinking about fitting an LAT hood.......
This hood is now coming off for the ninth time and I'm just finishing the front edge.!!"

FWIW, this company also sells them. The have Tigers listed under "Ford Cars".

I think the fit is always going to be subjet to the car... Some may leave mpre material to allow more adjustment, some may suffer from variation between the mold they are from and the guard/ valence they line up to.

I have a Haworth one but not fitted it.... Will be 9 years next year...eeek.

Default Lat Hood For Sale

I saw a LAT hood for sale at the UNITED XXXVI in VA.

It was a new one and the seller wanted about $700 He showed up and left the Hood there a few days, was still there when I left early Sunday morning.

A Gent by the name of Russ was basically in charge of the Parts Room and would know how to get in touch with the Seller.

I tried several times before I left but had no luck.

Was a bit interested in getting one for my '65 SIV GT BW35 gettin' the 4.0 V6

Hope you have better luck than I did! Another Guy ( Eric G) might also know of the Seller.

DanR
