359 long hood

A quick how-to to make a long hood for the Peterbilt 359. I show an AMT hood here, but this will work for the Revell of Germany and Revell/Monogram 359s as well. You will need two hoods, the main hood and a donor.

On top of modifying the hood length, the chassis length will need to be extended by 7.5 inches just aft of the rear front spring hanger. The lower exhaust piping, air cleaner piping, drive shaft and steering shaft will have to be lengthened also.
