I'm serious! Is it even DOT approved? If not, I don't trust that thing in an accident. You might loose your head!

Along with the Hood melting . The plastic clear hoods have no crumple wtfzone and that's why it's strictly for show and not street legal. wtf

My co-worker had an old civic hatchback with I'll admit was badass after he was done with it. Trust me I seen him Hit the nitros on an open street on a Military Facility. Anyway. He had an engine swap and the engine was so damn clean he felt compelled to show it off. He Cut a 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 square in his Hood in the center and put a piece of clear plexiglass in there and sealed it with some Aircraft sealant. That shit is clean looking and it doesnt melt or anything. Its like a lil window into whats goin on. Very nice.
