Default DIY Extraction Hood



DIY Extraction hood. It used to be an OEM Mazda aluminum hood in smoothing Smurf Blue color. It was too boring so I cut a big hole in it, which helps keep intake and coolant temps down. It is the true model of function over form. It also makes the front end feel more stable at high speed. I had to buy blades and a cut off mandrel to cut the hood. Cost me about $20 I think. So, whoever wants it can have it for what I've got in it. $20.

She ain't the prettiest hood you'll find, but she's the cheapest. And not only functional, it's also lightweight.

Yes, this is the hood that started all the rage, and yes you can own it, if the price is right. And please, local pick up only. :gay:

I'm tempted. I have a paint sprayer on the way, but too much crap in my garage already.

yeah, well, they came that way. I got both the top and bottom boxes from a friend who couldn't store them in his 1 bedroom apartment after his divorce.

oh, and my garage looks much more pimp since that pic; neater, with more shelves, and got rid of a bunch of ****.
