    Melt=NO!! That was done in the 70's on early show cars-plexiglas hoods. Got lots of attention back then.

    i'm under the impression that hood was painted  to look clear ?
    i've seen the clear & smoked plexiglass  used even as gullwing van doors but it didn't
    have the strength to support it's self, and i'm not seeing any support in the photo.   also i don't see a hood latch but has chrome hinges and springs ,The springs will rip the hood apart, also if it were plexiglass they should have used hood pins . and last the hood springs are in the up position not in the down position so i think  it's a paint job.  what does every one else think ?????????????????

    also the lines in the body / hood carry all the way back opposed to seeing the wheel wells

    If your vintage van should ever break down, it's always good to have a ride you can really trust to get you from point A to B.....

    This is a '66 Volvo I did a lot of body work on for a friend, he had it converted to an electric car.
    I welded all the extra holes, heater core,vents,gas door etc. that aren't needed anymore, also frenched the headlights and added chevy tail and turn signals all LED and mounted from the inside, removed all chrome trim, letters and made a custom grille and more.
    It came out really nice and is fun to drive, electric motor and original 4 speed trans.
    Something different?
