Just about ready to start making parts. They took a bit more time than we thought to prep, but I'm excited to get going on these!

Very cool, and good on you for putting these into production Mark.

Would love to finally see a real weight savings between CF lids and the factory originals in steel (so many of which have a lot of material on them by now). When I think about trying to offset the weight gain of my six conversion, three things always come to mind first: GT lids, GT bumpers, and a lightweight battery.

Best weight savings for the $ is fiberglass.
Carbon fiber will be lighter but on a per/lb basis you can make lighter at a higher cost.

You never got back on the vented hoods for a water-cooled car. Are you going to make any of those so I could get one?

Yes, but they will not be 1st. We are doing what we have tooling for 1st. The part he had the plug for was not good, so we will have to start over.

I would be interested in a set depending on the price. Trying to figure out which one.

Would be interested in knowing the actual weight comparisons between stock steel lids, fiberglass lids, and the carbon lids. Also will it be a true bolt on configuration requiring no hood pins? I would imagine the carbon lids will be much stiffer than the Fiberglass units.

Are you going to vacuum bag the carbon?

One last thing, it would be cool if you were able to put some yellow die in the resin for that aged OE GT look on the underside.

Depending on all the above I would be interested in a set.

Well got these into the molds friday. Should have some news later this week.

Sheridan was selling just the skins on these and fro full race you could attach a tab and and use a Dzus fastener. which is fine, but we are doing a complete version on these too.
I figured most folks wouldn't want to "modify" the car for the hoods to this extent. We will however be making pins and plates for hood closure as well as a mount for the stock latch.
