trying to find pics of the new Rs with a contrasting color hood. i've looked into a carbon hood, but none are available, so i've thought about having mine painted either black or graphite (caliper color). would there be any interest in trying to get a carbon hood made for the new Rs? if so, this would be a better choice (extreme light weight, similar look effect). maybe carbon fiber werks could work out something?

The factory hood is really light already. The weight to cost savings wouldn't be all that great.

I don't like hood pins......but they're necessary.

It would be more of a look thing. But I would buy one.

EVOLVE car, looks sick. I Would do something like the S40 and the S60, not the entire hood, and then do the roof and trunk. I'm trying to find it, but there is an S40 with ti-grey instead of black, and it looks sick.

Re: (cmurphy2266)

thanks for the pics. i have been trying to decide whether to do the entire hood or do the center only, not sure what would look the best. the S60 picture really looks nice with the center only. would black or graphite look best on red?

Maybe you could put a big moose decal on the hood similar to the late 70's/early 80's Trans Ams.
