    Yours is a 4" Glasstek. It closley hugs the wind screen profile and the cowl finishes close to the front of the hood. I used it for that reason. That way my engine intake fits......Just. Even after a 1/2" body drop.......!

    Functionally the Glasstek was my first choice. Aesthetically I think it has smooth lines with the cowl itself extending to the windscreen and the front valance...

    I actually posted a thread on this not too long ago....heres some good info I found out.

    Harwoods are a little more expensive and require a good amount of modification (or so i was told by a few harwood owners) to make it fit.

    A couple members with glasstek hoods told me they fit pretty close right out of the package

    Both hoods angle with the windshield, but the cowl on the glasstek starts closer to the nose of the hood than the cowl on the harwoods, which to me looks way better. Take a look at a couple of the pics of each and you should see what I'm talking about.

    I did receive a post from a member who tried a couple glasstek products and they showed up damaged..but I'm thinking that may have been an unlucky coincidence. I'm goin with a glasstek based on look, price, and testimonials that they fit better out of the box than a harwood.

    Hope this helps in your selection!

    After clicking on the "buy it" button my Glasstek hood arrived all the way from the US to the UK and on my driveway on the back of a lorry in a wooden crate.

    No damage.

    I think it's just down to who handles the goods.....

    Glasstek IS the better hood, I know a few people that have bought them, and they fit GREAT !!

    I am actually going to get rid of my 4" because it looks too high for me.
    I will be getting a 2", unless someone makes a stock looking 78Z hood that is 'glass and taller. :eek:
