    How about a pic of your car? I voted Raptor, but may change my mind after a pic.

    My car has been down for 8 months so not yet You can get the heat extractor holes blocked off to prevent rain from getting in. Default it comes with them open.

    When ordering you tell them you don't want the heat extractor holes on the underside of the hood. The wsq hoods are made to order so they don't keep them in stock.

    My opinion is the Raptor. I like the fact it still has a bit of lid above the screen.

    It's on it just isn't lined up right. Here is a pic of it on straight from the box with no tweaking. Don't mind the messy garage. It is my parents.

    If it is the fitment, no hood is going to fit perfectly out if the box. They are all going to need adjustments.
