Default Carbon Fiber Hood?

Does anyone know who makes this hood, or where to get it?

Looks like a Miata version of the Seibon Scoot hood I had on my '94 RX7...

Yea, that is kinda of a common hood for Fd's and Supras. I wouldnt get carbon fiber in the summer, but thats just me.

I wish I could come up with a hood that had the more normal looking vents, and not that crap in the front, I'd buy it and paint it.

Those vents are the exact opposite of what you want on a vented hood.

Really? I would think you would want vents that extract heat from the engine bay via vacuum.. The end result would be a higher pressure drop between the mouth of the nose and the engine bay... thus increasing the efficiencies of your oil cooler, intercooler, and radiator...

That hood works great on FDs, where it belongs.
