Looking at Detroit Muscle Technologies they list a front hood seal for AARs with a note that says "not sure if T/A hoods had seals".

If so, can someone post some detail pics of how the seal orients and distance from bottom of hood to the mounting clip holes.

I'm working with an AAR Fiberglass reproduction T/A hood which didn't come drilled out for things like this or hood pins, etc.

Thanks

Yes there is a seal, IIRC it's the same size as the AAR seal, not the steel hood Challenger seal, when I have more time I'll dig up some photos, unless someone beats me to it....

Thanks DAYCLONA, I search widely on google images. The front seal area apparently isn't the sexiest thing to photograph on T/A cars, just lots of air cleaner and hood scoop photos LOL.

The T/A hoods used the exact same hood to radiator support seal as the steel hood Challengers - but it was modified to work with the N94 Challenger hoods by cutting some off of each end.
