Finished the first layer of foam reinforcements. I bought some expanding pour foam (Aeromarine Products) that I will use to attach the foam sheets to the hood and fill in the gaps. The foam pieces fit well enough to stay in place with no adhesive when i test fit the hood. The gap is significantly smaller and will look quite nice. I am going to mount the grill screen right next to the radiator (maybe 1/2 inch gap) so I still have some protection but I get the deep inlet look.
