[PICS] Today I got my kevlar hood

I had to wait a while for it to get here, but here it is.
It's less silver than I expected, but I don't mind that.

Tomorrow I'll post pics of it on the car.

Kevlars a little heavier, but not by a whole lot. Also, kevlar gives the Carbon Fiber Hood some color.

I was just thinking about the kevlar vests too... the tighter weave characteristics are what gives it the "bullet-proof" nature. These hoods, while made of the same material, are not manufactured in the same way obviously

- still, if you wanna try taking a shot at it, report the results grin

It will fot with a SRI, it's the same as the OEM Hood, the scoop is higher.

Hydrolock your SRI, and you have a way bigger problem than just hydrolocking, you'll probably have you car in a lake or something

You can paint Carbon Fiber just as easy as any other Hood material.
