Pictures will be coming soon. We just had our first team meeting on the hoods. The hood will be CNC'd shortly and after we update the designs I'll post up a few different rendered versions and let you guys give me feedback.

The style most of us like the best is for the center section recessed with a raised bevel right before the center. Then to have functional side vents on each side. The placement of these is really up for discussion as well.

We always want to show off our engines with our hood open. But nobody wants to have an UGLY hood underside with either resin or cut fiberglass sections that hold the hood together. The HPF hood will be two layers with the underside made of the same CRYSTAL CLEAR SHINY CARBON FIBER.

We won't be making a Sedan version at first. Once we sell through the Coupe version we can take a look at the demand for the Sedan.

I didn't delete your post. MA Shaw makes great parts. People can always find cheaper parts somewhere else and hoods are no exception. But you get what you pay for. We've installed a TON of hoods here at HPF. Our hood will be worth every penny of the price!!
