    The parts came out great by the way.

    Any news on teaming up? Is Anvil planning on producing the 69 style hood?

    Spoke to one of the guys from Anvil about a yr ago but haven't heard anything since. Anyone know if they are planning to make a 1st gen hood any time soon?

    I know the Camaro market is much bigger but I'm willing to bet if companies start making mroe Firebird parts, more people would build them.

    What is more realistic to you?

    I am at $2500 for a hood.

    Nice work but I too would consider a 400 hood if it was:
    A- Lighter
    B- Cheaper

    I'm more for function than bling. My $400 VFN glass Bolt on hood is only 22 lbs, why would I want a 20 lb carbon hood for $2500?
    Get it to 10 lbs and $1000 and I'd be interested.

    I would really need to see some pictures at least. I would like to see attachment at front and rear and the side detail of where the windows roll up to meet the top, is a ledge or lip needed to fasten a weatherstrip to. A mold would be $2000 - $3000 or make the mold yourself and get it to me.
