Molded in would be my choice. Not sure whether I'm in for a hood or if I'm just going to louver mine though. Guess it all rides on price.

Remember, you can make the molded-in hood and then customers that don't want them can trim them out before painting them.

I am making the mold first for the non molded one then making the mold for the molded one after that. That way the non molded has a good fit and not just a cut out fit.

Since I am making two molds, would you guys with the molded in lights like it if the hood was just smooth and no headlight lines?

Is everyone planning on using hood pins with it? Those that are will be able to get theirs faster. It will take me a little to weld up some catches that will make it fit at exactly the oem spot.

I'm pinning mine. The stock catch is heavy as hell.

Too late man. Already went into mass production. I have hired on ten more guys just to do your hood.

No sweat off my back. Let me know if you need one in the future. The molds aren't going anywhere.

It will still have the bump in the middle. I will post up some pictures either tomorrow or Friday when we pop out the mold.

No, I have to pop it out of the mold. It will look about the same as the post with the carbontrix scoop between the headlights.

Shipping should cost around $100 depending on where you live. My fedex freight account is only set up for business to business shipping. It cost substantially more to ship to a residence.
