I am swapping a tunnel ram onto my stroker small block and will be changing to a fiberglass hood. I am soon to be faced with how to store my stock hood. Has anyone done anything creative and secure to hang one from the ceiling? I have a 2 car garage in which I use pretty much all the wall space. Thanks for any ideas.

I have my old Bonneville's hood hanging in the garage. I bolted some chain from Home Depot to the hood hinge area with bolts/washers and have it hanging vertically on one of the walls from eyelets. To hang it upside down I'd probably just attach another piece of chain to the latch area.

I built something like this but skipped the grated shelf bottom and used some aluminum flat stock for cross bars on the ends.

Mine was about 10-12 inches from the ceiling.

If you end up putting it on the floor or ground, be sure to let it rest on its side and not on the front or rear edge.
