There was a car exactly like yours at the shootout with a carbon fiber hood. It looked very nice.

Attached is a picture of a black 97/98 Talon with a cf hood.

Wow, I always thought the black/cf combo would look bad. I like it! Same goes for the red/cf.

Get the cf hood. I'll help install!

The same reason no one fixed the rips in there jeans in the 80's ;) It's a style, some like it some don't.

I think it looks good on some cars. Most cars it looks stupid. The hood has to be of a even size compaired to the rest of the car, or the contrast is overwelming. I think the 2g has one of the best perportions, between the bumper, and fenders making the hood look good, as long as the color is right. Which I think most colors do work with it.

Heres a question related to carbon fiber hoods...

Are they all the same?...or are there companies that make better looking higher quality carbon fiber hoods?

Also...is there a predator carbon fiber hood out there anywheres?...or a vented carbon fiber hood?

Thanks guys

Peace

No, all carbon fiber hoods are not of the same quality. I have seen some that fit terribly with large gaps and with alot of imperfections in the top coat. Then on the other hand some fit quite nice and the quality is noticably higher.

I believe VISracing has a carbon fiber vented hood or two for 2G DSMs.
