    Hoods are back in the production order. The first hoods will starting popping end of March for delivery first of April. This first run will be fiberglass only. No Carbon fiber until I can perfect the process.

    For those who have been asking the time has finally arrived. If you wish to make an order they will be a first come first serve. 50% up front with the balance due upon delivery.

    Oh yes sorry I suppose that would have been helpful. Hoods will be $625.

    The price structure is slightly higher than other hoods but the benefits are well worth the cost.

    - The mold has been completely reworked. All contours and curves have been refinished to make the hood symmetrical and straight.
    - Hoods are guaranteed to fit without modification (provided your front end is aligned. Hoods are made to fit OE steel and may not be optimized for aftermarket sheet metal.)

    - The cowl area has been reinforced with an "air core". This will prevent the fiberglass from sagging over time
    - Hoods are coated in white gelcoat
    - All hood attachment points have been reinforced.

    Standard NastyZ discount will apply to all hoods but they will not be eligible for presale discount. After labor and materials there is very little profit in these hoods. 12% discount pretty much eats up all the profit. Cost after discount is $550

    Yes that is full bolt on price. I will not be making a pin on version. You get 2 options:

    A- full bolt on fiberglass or carbon fiber
    B- fiberglass/ carbon fiber outer with full steel inner structure. (Pricing not set)

    Yes, I will be making the mold next week. Once the mold is made I will start taking orders. I will need 3 orders. It will be 2-3 weeks once I receive the orders to have the hoods to your doors. At this time I will only be making them in Fiberglass but will have Carbon fiber available shortly there after.
