I guess its time for a CF Hood..

Some idiot in a Tahoe today decided to slam on his breaks on the high way.
Busted my radiator, so I had to get a dolly from uhaul and tow it all the way home. Oh yeah, I was a hour from home.. Cool hunh?







So any info on a site for a decent CF hood would be much appreciated. Same with info on a nice radiator. I need a decent one but nothing too fancy.

Re: I guess its time for a CF Hood..

I was planning to get a CF as well as my hood need a repaint it either that a or cf, if I get it repainted it'll cost less, though.

Re: I guess its time for a CF Hood..

I'd stick with OEM style. Keep an eye on the hood hatch and you shouldn't need hood pins, with the OEM style there is no scoop or anything to catch the wind. That is one hell of a scratch, ouch!!
