I have seen the options of carbon hoods for us, but have yet to find any good fibreglass hoods.

Do any of you have any links or know of any manufacturers for a good fibreglass hood? I am not completly sold on the carbon yet.

It's blue b/c it's unpainted. That's just the primer LOL.

the predator is cool looking, their webpage is www.aerogear.net . Mospeed has one, you can check out his pics at http://mospeed.nissanpower.com/ .

fiberglass and c/f are both cool, they're both pretty lite and they are nice improvements, if you're in a hotter state, please be aware that with either of these hoods, the heat will build up in your engine more since they're not as conductive as your metal hood. C/f is supposed to be lighter than fiberglass still and it's more durable, fiberglass can crack but it can at least be painted to your body color.

1997 GA16DE, you can paint carbon fiber hoods too... You could add your color to the CF hood, although it will still looks carbon fiber-ish.

Try a group buy for a sentra hood. At importfan.com we have two. An OEM style hood, and the Knight Sports RX-7 vented style hood. That's the hood i'm gettin!

I know, but I think painting it ruins it. If you're going to go C/F, I wouldn't paint it one bit. BTW, you know how sometimes you can get blue c/f or red c/f on interior accent panels? Haven't they started making colored c/f hoods yet? I've know heard of them.

So far a version of the clear hood has yet to be made for any Sentra chassis. If wouldn't be hard to have a piece of lexan cut to fit and molded into a stock or aftermarket hood, though. But if you ask me, a clear hood is just window shopping for thieves, although it would be cool for show.

Yes, the Fiber Images ones are beautiful. 1CLNB14 is lucky enough to have one on his car and the quality is fantastic. Very solid but very light hoods.
