    SS, WS^, and Firehawk Hoods

    I didn't know here to post this silly question. I figured since it was about hoods appearance was a good place.

    I have not been up close to a 4th Gen F-Body SS, WS6, or Firehawk. I have always been curious about the hoods. Are the factory hoods metal or fiber glass?

    I know my z28 is all metal, . I was just wondering, thanks.

    There are different types of so called fiberglass hoods of which all are made different. The original SLP hoods use a process called Sheet Molded Compound or SMC. SMC hoods are more durable than your traditional polyresin fiberglass hoods but a bit heavier.

    thanks all. I posted my question and then checked out big time. I think I was alien probed in deep space.

    I take it the hoods are a similar material as the fenders and door skins then.
