I picked this up for Rich 2 years ago, The guy had an oem hood laying against his shop wall. Just for shits and giggles I decided to pick it up for a comparison and it blew me away. This hood is 1/3rd the weight of an oem.

Is it braced underneath ? Manuf ?

richie_s999 12-08-2011 11:01 AM

Beleive it was made in the states

The underside brace is molded off an oem hood, this I not a flimsy peice

I will take picks of the underside and weigh it tonight

weight of the hood is 20lbs +/- weight taken on nose, hood standing, on levelest part of shop floor (80 year old foundation with floor slightly tapered for floor drain)

OEM hood weight is 45-50lbs

here is pick of back side, very nicely done strong brace, like I said its solid for a cf hood

amazing actually. Nice work. It even uses the stock pins. Do they recommend hood pins ?


richie_s999 12-09-2011 08:58 AM

I had no worries with the stock latches, you could run pins if you wanted

I'm guessing this is gone?

richie_s999 03-10-2012 08:58 PM

Long gone
