His picture is worth a thousand words. It looks good to me. Hector has talked about a carbon fiber hood, also.

Carbon fiber won't look too "fancy" on a Bonneville in my opinion.

Well, we are going to do a custom carbon fiber hood for my car and it will match since I have a black car. I agree, other color is tough. If you have a green car, you can add a green weave to it to match the car better but its not always the same.

The hood option is based on the need for people other than the GP masses to have a Cool ram air hood. It is not particular style but more of an option with no real limitations. So donít be limited by the picture we use think about what you want and we can work together to make it. This option is not a "special" ability per say. Any auto body shop worth its weight can do this for you but they will charge more and will not be as patient as I will. I can also get a plastic ricer hood for our car. In all colors. Anyway the option will soon have my personal hood on it as well.

Now to answer your question. No one on this site has a hood from me. Actually I donít personally make them and when I get a serious buyer willing to get involved my body shop will provide all the amazing work they have done and the merit will be known. I will also have my hood posted once ití* done.

I have a few options for you and I will get back at you this afternoon. In about 4-5 hours. You can call me at the posted phone # on my main (top) page. (559) 709-4127. Cell

I will give you every detail you will need and discuss exactly what you want and how you want it.

It is better if you paint it on your end so it matches your car.

Ty

email me at my bizness e-mail and we can exchange pics and stuff and lay out the groundwork for the making and sending of the hood.
Thx!

Dude, is that thing functional? Or is it just dress? Don't get me wrong, I like the idea either way, just curious is all.
