I voted yes because that is what I would do.

BUT if it is going to happen again, don't let it happen to the CF one..

get a carbon one due to weight, if you wish the car to be sleeper, paint it to match, if money doesnt matter,

If you were to buy a carbon fiber hood and paint it to match, that would really be a waste of cash. The only thing you will really achieve by doing this is a hood that is easier to open, cuz it'll weigh less. 15 pounds lost won't really be noticable performance wise. Hell, you might as well drive with the stock hood and just drop a duece, get a haircut, and not wear shoes. If you want to keep that stock look, then get a steel hood. If you want the carbon fiber look, go for that. If you want vents in it (not cowls, cool low profile vents) then get something made of fiberglass. Prepare to pay about the same for an unpainted CF hood as you would for a painted stock one and I do believe a painted fiberglass one will cost you more than the other two. Shop around. Fiberglass hoods with cool vents are easy to find on www.ebay.com

I should also add that you can get vented hoods that are made of CF. Like the fiberglass ones. You should also consider those. My personal pick. Cuz a vented hood will allow heat to escape, just make sure to cover it in heavy rain or just be positive that your wiring is insulated and there are no open connections underneath. But you should be good.

bro, you know what would be sweet? a transparent hood. do they have some shit like that? i guess it'd be kinda difficult to find the right kind of plastic or whatever that could take the heat, but that would be so wicked :nod:

yes, buy the carbon fiber hood, then paint over it.

if youre worried about that little ammount of weight, start loosing weight., your spare tire, any stereo, get lighter wheels dump some seats

... you'll say... hold on.. that's not reasonable.....

i'll say... why you spending money on a CF hood? where else could that money be better used=?

then we agree and watch the fast and the furious!! :lol: :lol:

sorry just read this.

if you want a transparent hood, your car must be

1) tricked the hell out
2) insured
3) kept away from anyone who has light fingers...
4) a second hood, comon, that shit aint praticle.
