    I'll Start by say not my design or build just providing info.
    Author:I2KanGrow of ICMag

    Here's a pictorial step-by-step on assembly of my NGB hood. I couldn't find any information on the design of the original hood in the sticky, so I decided to "roll my own", so to speak:

    This took some time, but with the pictures in the orig. NGB thread (THANKS Gantz!!), a pencil, paper, rulers and a calculator, I was able to design the hood, drafted in post #1, and cut-out, here. All cuts in the sheetmetal were made with a power handsaw (sabre saw), fitted with a fine metal blade.


    I accomplished the bending by clamping the hood between a piece of angle iron and a piece of wood, right on the line where I wanted the bend, then I just bent it by hand... nothing fancy here!!

    The hood actually bent quite well, not perfect, but good enough! - I'm now ready to stick it all together with pop rivets.

    Fitting the cooltube:


    created a hole template by calculating the ratio of the "rise and run" on the hood slope, then distorted a 4" circle in Photoshop to reflect the calculations - the ellipse didn't look right...

    ...but it ended-up being a pretty great fit!

    Here's a rough-in of my Bake-a-round tube loosely fitted into the hood, to give an idea of how it'll all come together in the end. I'm torn between gluing mylar or painting white - but I'm leaning toward white paint. I'm trying to design a "bat-wing" insert to put behind the Bake-a-round tube in order to deflect the light better, perhaps I'll mylar that portion only.

    Total cost so far:
    Bake-a-Round - Ebay $17.00
    Sheetmetal - 2 pieces - $13.08, Rivets - $3.97, Washers - $1.97 - Lowes
    TOTAL - $36.02

    Hope everyone enjoys this

    Nice job! I would go with flat titanium white for the inside, if the glass should ever get cracked the mylar may get a little too warm. Unlikely, but I'm all for defensive growing! $36.02 and the pride of building your own, priceless. Thanks for the post!
