Eventually I plan on making fenders. I just started these parts last summer. There is a lot of time and effort into these molds. I am almost done with the first complete hood we we see how it fits. My expectations are a perfect fit being as stock oem parts used for molds. I am more than happy to answer any questions.Oh! and the guy who wants a hood for free. Send me a rising sun stencil for the hood and I'll give you a discount.

I have my hoods outsourced to Dillion510(Franks Boy) for Rising sun paint jobs now.

Frank and Jeff are in Everett.
let them see it and if they are good as you say they will them for customer cars. I dont about there own but If these are good you should go by there sometime.

My hood is about near to flip over on me as it rotted underneath where the latch is spot welded to the buckel.
about 65mph you can see the hood lift about a 1/8th in front and shakes like a mother fucker!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be honest hood pins will solve this proplem
But I think car look better w/o hood pins

Have been by there quite a few times,know Frank and Jeff. Like I said should be done with the first hood very soon,there will be no shaking or twisting in the wind. Im with you hood pins are fine for race cars but I like stock looking.

How much does the hood weigh? It's going on a race car so pins are planned.
Shipping options? Thanks

Thanks Kev, nice and light. I've bought hoods and spoilers for past racecars from other manufacturers. One lightweight solution to hood flex is a long/thin foam and glass strip, stiffened up my last Z hood nicely. Your email does a security bounce. Shipping guesstimate to NorCal?

Nice looking parts. I tacoed my hood a few weeks back and am in need of a replacement. will the sub frame from a factory hood fit inside yours? do you have a price list? I may want an airdam as well.

Because its sterile and I like the taste.

does the hood allow for the stock trim to be used? i just painted the last FG hood silver :lol:


strucurally it looks very flimsy.
even a simple X on the bottom and across the R will stiffen it up sufficiently.


lookin good otherwise.

"I can spend time working on the Dattos, or wasting money at the strip club. You make the call." :D


I'll put on chain mail and a dirt bike tire jock strap and drive it!!!!!

Yes stock trim will fit on the hood. I make all these parts the same,and leave the customizing to the car owner.

after having my hood on my tib fly up a few weeks ago, I will not be running a carbon or fiber glass hood with out some sort of 2nd saftey. Wrinkled the hell out of my roof...

Stuff looks good though, I'd like to see a skeleton under there.

I'm kinda tired and put it in my butt. I was concerned.

When I get into my own garage I will have room to do a lot more.but for now got to keep it small,no space. Plus I dont know if it will pay for me to make complete hoods,people want everything cheap and dont want to pay for your time.

Thanks ops. I want to make stuff people will want to put on their cars for a good price. These parts are not show quality,but I think they are good parts for a very affordable price most of these parts are 50% less than the large manufacturers. Post #29 will take you to my photo album go to album 510 fiberglass.

Posted ImageI made a mould of these airdams.Think im gonna ask 125.00$ They arent perfect but the big guys are asking double that for the dobi style which is the closest thing I have found resembling it.
