Or maybe this someone that had them laying around could make a deal with Cspence....................who could blow the dust off em and put them to use..............maybe, just maybe! Damn this place, the more I am around here, the more money I want to spend...these and the hood I gotta have though, the other stuff I want can wait for now On a more positive note, my main squeeze just got another job to support my hobby .................well maybe not to support my hobby, but that sounds good!

Here's some more inspiration Rharris. Anyone else that would be interested please speak up!:

First hood has been popped out. I am going to start making the integrated headlight cover one with it. The hood weight is about 2-3lbs more than the stock hood. Someone came by to give me a demo on vacuum bagging and the system I would need to make a significant dent on materials use would be atleast $1700 for an industrial grade unit. I need industrial garde to be able to withstand the atmosphere it is in. Sorry it couldn't be lighter.

Another camera phone pic. I will have a better camera when I get back from the weekend and take more pictures.

Hey i notice you have a red door there... any possibility that you could paint some hoods to match?? My car's the classic red color.. it would definitely be a nice value-add to have it ready-to-mount on delivery..

I do not want to paint any of these becasue the paint could get a scratch in shipping or the color not match exactly, etc. Too much of a hassle for me to deal with. Plus, I am an OK painter, not great.

Thank you kind sir. Are you not going to get your car painted with the FM hood on? And yes I did get your check. I should hopefully be getting out of here in time to deposit it.

I love sending out "FEMA checks." lol

Yeah, I'm probably going to stick with the FM hood. I'm too tired to change stuff like that right now.

My wife came in with a puzzled look on her face asking why we were getting letters in from FEMA. I told her it was my guvment check.

Unless you have a bumper that i can make a mold directly off of, then I am not going to be making any bumpers. It is beyond my skills. This hood took enough out of me and look how simple this thing is.

Hood looks good btw .

Looks good...can't wait to see the solid one and some pictures of it on a car!

BTW because I'm a dumbass, what the hell is this,

"Someone came by to give me a demo on vacuum bagging and the system I would need to make a significant dent on materials use would be atleast $1700 for an industrial grade unit"

The hoods will have the factory threaded bolts, M8 1.25, in the hoods with a back washer welded on the base of the bolt so that the bolt doesn't break out of the fiberglass like snowboarder's autokonxeion hood did.
