    That is a very awesome hood.

    Unfortunately I am a cheap-ass.

    Interested in weight deltas between the 3 options of hoods and a stock steel hood...also between the inner fenders and stock steel inners.

    I will try to get out soon and weigh my extra stock hood. It is heavy I can tell you that.

    Weights...
    Stock hood 69#
    Aftermarket cowl 1 68#
    Aftermarket cowl 2 79#
    Carbon Hood with Ram Air 26#
    Hood minus Ram Air is probably 2-3 #s lighter.

    Here is the picture of the bottom. They use factory hinge and latch mounts. We are still getting a lot of interest for the 69-72 hoods just a matter of some people giving the final ok and we will pull the trigger.

    Was just wondering if you were ever going to still build the 69-72 hood? Was also interested in the inner fenders to accommodate the wider wheels.

    How do these hold up to the sun? I have read up some on carbon fiber and read some will fade badly in the sun... not sure if it the quality of products used or ? but just thought you might have some insight.

    I am very interested in a non-ram air. What happens if I need to cut it? I have a radial entry blower on the LSX motor I run. I also use Porter built hood hinges... any way to do a provision for those?

    This is the Porterbuilt hinge set up. It has a plate that gets welded to the hood:

    I can probably get the hood without the 2 halves bonded. Then you could put inserts in.

    I know this is a very old thread but was this hood ever produced? Is it still?
