    I haven't converted to a long hood, so I never followed through with anything other than my "drawing." I'd make it out of 16 guage steel and put a shallow crease in the handle part for strength. If you have any questions on how I'd go about building my solution, ask away.

    Did you ever come up with a solution to this thread:

    I would like to use a stock steel hood if possible but there is the latch issue.

    Just found an old post about your turbo-look question. I have the same situation with my 1984 wide-body cab. All original documentation is gone from the original owner but found a good resource in Norbert Franz with Turbolook-Register - Startseite. He noted a 'z' code on my option sticker and traced the code to a 'special wishes' designation where a chassis was pulled from the line and sent to Werk 1 for modification. No factory documentation exists today, but it does give a clue as to why we have non-491 codes on our cars.
