Mac
Shipping from PR would kill the cost of the hood. now if he wanted to send me a mold thats another story. I could lay it out un glass and ship upper USA and canada fairly cheap to keep the cost down. Read above post.

Problem there is, What I find super cool you might hate..

If I make 1 hood for myself thats not a big deal. Unless I know going in that people like it and have had some say in the design I won;t make a mold

then to make a second hood design thats where it starts costing

making a hood is not something that can be done in a afternoon, It takes days weeks to prefect it.

SO to make a mold I have to be 100% sure people like it.

Give me some IDEAS...

Rob...i have had this idea for a damn looooong time

i would like to see something that is very similiar to the GP guys

here is where i have issues tho.....the GP hoods match the bumper perfectally. Now the WS6 scoops are pretty narrow and might not match the grille that great

i personally want to adapt the GA Ram Air scoops, as they are wider, and i think they would look much better





Personally i think the GA scoops would look the best



and this one has the SD look



PERSONALLY, i think these would look better than the WS6 scoops because they are wider and would fit the car better

I have a WS6 and measured the scoops they are wider then the GA inlets. and higher hmmmmI think the red hood that you posted pat is nice but kinda busy.

I know what you mean about matching the grill problem is the WS6 hood matches my grill I have a different grill.

I will look at the 03 grill tomorrow and measure it aswell


We need a photo shoper to do some work on designs.

I really like

At this point I have no idea on what they would cost. Keep in mind that the first run would only be for 2000+ cars if enough interest is generated I might make something for earlier Bonneville'*. But right now it'* just going to be alot of research to figure out cost and if it doesnt make sense then why do it.
