if you leave the cut out, i would suggest getting some of the stuff they use to cover the edges, give it a cleaner look
btw those tires look good on there to me, this thing has came a long way man good work

Since your hood is pretty close to mine... Don't mind the crappy line drawing, but if you look at the red lines I added, it's a simple, easy cut out that will clear the heads, leave enough structure, and still be able to fasten it shut...

well i hooked 12 volts right to the starter and it didnt do much so could it be the starter. i also took the starter out and tested it and it turned on but when its in the motor its like it has no power to turn

you might need to rebuild the starter, grease the bushings. stretch has a thread on it somewhere, but that's my first guess

Well i need some help i drove the beast today and when i push the clutch in it wont stop i got a belt that is already too big for it on there. I dont know what to do when i shift the without the clutch the chain binds up and falls off bending the tensioner. I dont know if i should put another clutch system up by the motor to completely disengage it but I dont really know how i would go about doing that so any help would be great thanks!!!!

well everyone i cant get the beast to work. I finally gave up with the chain. last test drive chain bound up and bent the frame and broke a tooth off the peerless. So now im trying my luck with belts i put a belt pulley on the transmission and bolted a pulley next to the sproket on the rear end so wish me luck when i get a belt and give it a go

there might be some oil on the belt. you could get some real fine sandpaper or emry cloth and rough up the pullies.
