Wow, nice design! In all the Photoshopped images I've seen on this board, nobody came up with that particular design. Can't wait to hear the details!

very nice,
and the vent at the back of the hood? is that communicating with an intake of some sort?
will it clear strut braces? i've got the strong strut brace.

CF Bonnet (Hood)

Looks very nice. I might even abandon my stealth look and buy one.

Does it still need some tweaking in adjustment? It appears to sit too low at the top where it meets with the top of the fender (approx middle of the pic on the left).

Neat. Another option is a good thing.

I see that it falls a bit short in material when it meets below the A-Pillar/fender area though.
