I want to get all of this done before taking on more projects. That company is based in the US too and could cause a little more of a problem than I want to deal with if I start making copies.

Dogs with cone heads are always open to ridicule in my book.

I used to have real dogs I loved and respected too. Now I've got this weird little pig thing I can't help but laugh at.

Not right now. If i do, it won't be for a while. Unless you are a hardcore racer that needs the extra 5-7lbs, then it is all just for looks. Trying to get fucntion to the most people and form may follow later. If there is enough demand for it, then i may concider it in the future, but now right now.

What if you made a Hood skin that is lighter than the Hood you have made,I will use 2 sets of pins,so no hinges.That may lower the weight,Less material.Just trying to make a wieght goal,and you can even charge the same amount for the thing,Les mat,less work same money.
All win... -G-

Greg. That shouldn't be a problem. I only worry about having no real under support, but that is probably just me worrying too much. I should be able to accomidate that.

Gryff. They do look good in my opinion, but the main goal of this was to make something that works well and doesn't look like a home project gone wrong. Basically what I was saying is that I am to going to be focusing on asthetic changes when other parts need to be done first. Plus, I may use the money I get from the flares to get the proper equipment for carbon fiber instead of my ls1 stuff. That way the carbon fiber wont just be for looks.

I will probably start a new thread pretty soon about buying the hoods so people don't have to search through 20 pages to find what they need. It is getting pretty repetative.
