I've been asked to take a poll by a manufacturer...sooooo.....who wants a top-quality, great-value B15 carbon fiber hood to be manufactured? Email me privately and post here, thank you...

Prices ranging from 550-700 depending on grade you want(flat out weight-saver or deluxe show car), colors, etc...

I dont plan to buy one, but I do have a question. Are they real carbon fiber? The whole thing?

I only ask this because I've seen some car at shows that have "carbon fiber" hoods, then when they pop the hood you can tell its fake. Those kind look cheap. So is it the real deal?

yeah i was gonna ask about that too. i went to this one import shop around here and saw a carbonfiber hood. the top was laid out with carbonfiber but the inside part of it is fiberglas. whats the deal with that? are they all like that?

arent they supposed to be made of carbonfiber and not fiberglass?

I have questions for both Dan Turk and Chinoworld.

What do the hoods weigh? Will they mount to the stock hinges and hood latch, or are we using hood pins? Also, if we're using the stock hinges, do we use the stock hinge springs? Will they have the stock profile or will scoops/ducts be molded in?

Yes, I'm interested.

sorry about the confusion... yes its gonna be all carbon fiber, not fiber glass.

it's just an oem style hood but is made of carbon fiber, so it will use stock hinges and latch. u dont need any hood pins unless u want to. no there will not be any scoops or vents like that at the moment. but they will have it in 2 months r so b4 the se-r comes out. it weights anywhere from 5-8lbs.

OK, here's a couple more questions. What's the stock hood weigh vs. the carbon fiber one? Also, if the windshield wiper fluid holes need to be drilled, anything else that needs modification to be close to full stock function? What colors are available, I have a white sentra and would like to either match or contrast the color scheme. I don't want to look too ghetto or ricey or anything cheezy.

Just to let everyone who is thinking of getting one to know that you MUST use hoodpins on any fiberglass/carbon fiber hood. There is too much of a chance that it will fly up when your driving without them. They are easy to install though so its not a big deal, and they look cool.

no, they all dont need hood pins..... DG's carbon fiber hoods are a complete bolt on using the stock latch..... run a search on Carbon Fiber Hoods...... there are already a couple of companies with hoods for b15's already
