Default SALEEN HOOD

Well I got my SALEEN fiberglass hood put on my car today....after reading these post I figured I was in for the worse. I bought the hood before reading these post or I would've never purchased it. I just wanted to post ...I found no problems in the hood...I got the car upto 90+mph on the interstate with no poblems .....The downside to the hood is that it came in really poor shape....The paintshop had over 20 hours in prep time preparing the hood for paint...It came out very nice...at a cost of $865 over the hood cost....

I agree the hood looks great and as always, they need a lot of work before paint. On the downside, did you notice how much heavier it is over stock. We couldn't believe it the first time we picked one up how much heavier it was.

Yeah...I noticed how heavy it was...that part sorta disappointed me....:( But it made the car look so much better...I wish I had knew about the aluminum hood before I had already ordered that one...I would've went that route...I'm sure it is lighter in weight...
