    If you have a Z I would get a cowl hood. They look awesome. If I owned a Z I would have one.

    i was going to but the wife started to warm up to the SS hood. she likes the cowl but on the traditional 2 inch or so, the small cowl. i want to find a flat smooth hood. i can't stand a hood that looks like a chrysler concord, what was GM thinking.

    yes, it pays to have the wife's buy in when spending lots of money, .

    i've seen them on ebay and it is good to know they have a store front too. what kind of prep work? any more then just sanding, prime, and paint?

    the only thing i would do my self is fit it to the car. i would send it to a paint and body for the sand, prime, and paint.

    wavy is not bad, as long as the mounting holes, hinge holes and stuff line up right. i mean as long as they got the important stuff right and the hood goes on straight and closes tight, a little sanding is not bad.

    i wonder if there is enough material to sand out or fill and sand out those lovely chrysler concord lines?


    I have seen the Hardwood hoods on summit too. But I can't get the wife to agree to a 3 or 4 inch cowl.

    I like the SS hoods, well I like just about all the styles i have seen so far. I just wish some one would make a hood without those chrysler concord lines, lol.

    any one care to take a stab at the avg weight diff between a factory steal hood any any of the fiber glass after market hoods? I'm sure the fiber glass is less, but I don't have a hood to weigh and compare. i'm just curious.
