Norm if you read this:

1. Do you have an estimated time frame when your new low-rise cowl hood will be ready for production?

2. Estimate on cost?

3. Is shipping going to be available or should customers plan on bringing cars to your shop?

4. Will you be offering it painted for an additional fee, or will customers be advised to have a body shop paint?

5. Can they be additionally modified, for example have vents installed?

6. Lastly, if enough interest is generated would you be interested in offering a group discount purchase?

Chop,
Thanks for posting this. I am drooling over this mod. Also, I have a question for Norm. I do some fairly extensive road trips in my Sol. I have the plastic factory engine cover removed and replaced with the DDM valve covet. My concern is water getting in if I get caught in a heavy rain storm. Would you be able to make / add some sort of piece that closes up the opening in the event of severe weather? I have the GMPP CAI on my Sol. Can't wait to see completed hood pics!!!:thumbs:

Hello, at this point I have no idea. Im still trying to get the hard top right the rear glass is proving to be a PIA for the street version. Best I can tell you now, though the outside hood mold is done with the inside panel being mocked up now to become a pattern. All it takes is time and money, if you don't have the money you better have the time.

I am loving the Pontiac vented fenders you built for me. They work great and really do lower the temperature. I find that the temps return to normal much more quickly as well. An unintended benefit.:grouphug:

What exactly is this hood? A non-scoop style hood? Sort of a LT 1 corvette style?
I myself would be interested in more of a sutler hood. Something on the order of the new F type Jaguar hood "BONNET VENTS"

The existing hood and many of the body panels in fact are not very robust. The fiberglass is more resistant to denting during normal handeling. The Sky fenders are already plastic. The hydroformed trunk lid is highly susceptible to deformation when closing the trunk. The hood is easily dented by road debris or even very minor contact with stationary objects. The fiberglass parts are at least as robust as the stock parts in my experience.
