i have this option

ok i have an oportunity to trade my stock SSM hood from my 01 coupe for a CF hood from an 02 sedan thats also SSM. it would be an even trade. there are holes in the hood for the windshield fluid jets. not sure if they were made by the owner or just my manufacturer. should i do it? SSM with a cf hood any good looking? my gf thinks it will be rice. but what does she know, it ain't her car. i think it would be nice. any opinions?

i'm seriously considering the evo vented style. if it looks bad, just get it painted silver and you will still have a lighter hood.

another thing i hate about cf hood are the hoodpins. are there alternatives to this or cleaner looking ones that would blend in? these look pretty good...

um hood pins are required for a cf hood because its so light and on the freeway it can pop up, latch or no latch. I've seen it happen 3x on this site with the oem style hood and the car was nearly totaled.

when you feel how flimsy it is, you'll know. the latch can come loose from the hood cause its not held on real tight. you can't really do anything solid on a cf hood cause just about anything like screws would just crack it. here are a few more pics

hmm so where can i find some stealth looking pins? and are they easy to install? maybe they can be painted black to match better. also when you had your evo hood, did it come with a cf trim piece already in it?

I still have my evo hood and, the VIS trim pierce is a part of the mold of the hood. The pins are really easy to install you just put them where the stock rubber hood bumps things are. you cna paint the hood pins black but after you remove the pins a few times it is going to come off.

look at the underside of the hood, if it has a skeleton and such (like a stock one) then it should be fine. if it is just the backside of the fiberglass, it'll break...the latch doesn't just rip out, the hood flexes with the wind movement and eventually break the glass. the skeleton hold's it shape.

I have a seibon cf oem style hood on my ssm coupe on the bottom side of the hood has a whole fiberglass molded support skeleton thats really strong and looks like the stock hood but painted black. The hood is not flimsy at all and latches just like the stock hood. I picked mine up for kitzandmore.com for like $496 shipped. not bad if you ask me I've seen some offbrand hoods that require hood pins that cost like $500 without shipping.

ill decide about the hood pins when i get it. itll be a few months. i don't want to mess with a cf hood just to put in pins. i don't even know how to use pinds. besides, its a cleaner look without them. so anyway, thanks for the help yall. ill keep that latch thing in mind.

just look at the underside, and also the holes dont mean it's oem, mine had holes and they didn't fit....i bought the gay led washers that fit....no no led's hooked up (shroomster eat your heart out), but i think it looks good with the dark hood and chrome sprayers.
