    Nice. Two questions. With your hood do you notice a difference in temp. in the engine bay? and how much does a hood similar cost?

    Never really appreciated the Mecham hood partly because of how the front is shaped. Kinda goes contradictory to the lines of the car. IMO, the rest of it looks good tho.

    Very nice!

    My favorite hoods for the T/A, im biased though.

    The hood does make a noticable difference in engine temps. You can get simmilar results by removing the rear hood to cowl rubber seal. It helps air flo through the radiator also by relieving the pressurized pocket in the engine bay during cruising and high speeds. Simmilar to the Shelby series one cars and the C5R Vette only on a smaller scale.

    Mecham was just as much about function as they were appearance.
