    Lightbulb 99-02 Silverado Carbon Fiber Hood

    Hows it goin guys? Been a while since I have visited the site. I am currently working for a composite company out of dayton,Oh and we have recently put a carbon fiber hood for my 02' silverado into our project line-up. I have done some research on the hoods out right now and most companies are asking 999.00 not including shipping. These hood would be constructed oh high grade carbon fiber and would be a direct bolt on. I will be constructing a mold with a 2-3 inch cowl on top,

    I am interested to know how many of you silverado owners would be interested in a factory carbon fiber hood or cowl hood at a price way under what most big companies are asking. The price would most likely fall between 500-700 for carbon fiber. Also available would be fiberglass hoods in both factory in cowl. These would be a lot cheaper but the look of carbon fiber can't be beat.

    Let me know with your comments what you think of the idea and who would be interested and any other suggestions you may have!

    Thanks guys. "Semper Fi"

    Don't forget to add for packing and shipping.. After working for Goodmark I will tell you it's not cheap and that was for a steel hood.

    that is true we would be offering the hood for way under what retail is for a normal carbon fiber hood runs and the other thing to take into account is that carbon fiber weighs a lot less than steel. So the shipping will be less than a steel hood.

    But they are easy to brake so you will need to crate it up good...

    I would be interested, especially with a cowl injection vent! Hell yes! I covered mine with the carbon fiber look vinyl but would rather have the real thing!
