Default Vented CF Hood for 99 up !!!!

**** yea, they finally made one. I am not sure if it is CF over glass but still it is about time. $500 for the CF and 350 for the glass!

Knowing them... Carbon over glass. This is basically confirmed by price too. What is the claimed weight?

I have one for sale, a green carbon/kevlar hood. It is the one shown in RavynX pictures above. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Wow I wonder if the red is as bright as that green one. The red one on their site looks almost black.

I agree it isnt very pretty. I was looking around and found this one.Vented CF Hood for 99 up !!!!-nbhood04.jpg It is available from Racing Lifestyle but I also see it on the car pictured at Autokonexion's' website. Did these guys split company?

Also on Autokonexion's site they claim to be working on a "New Version Hood" I wonder what that will look like.

Yea I think I will purchase the racing life hood. No CF because I will paint it along with the small factory side skirts and Garage Vary lip spoiler. That should cover me for the body until I cam find a nice factory hardtop.

18psi thanks I will contact him and see what he has to say.
