I am looking to do a carbon fiber hood. It looks like Anderson Composites makes a great looking one, link below. I actually love this one its sharp. Are there currently any others on the market though? I have had difficulty finding anything. If anyone has anything they could link me to I would appreciate it.

Any idea what the weight reduction is on that? Even the metal hood isn't very large.

Interesting that Anderson isn't advertising the weight of these. It leads me to believe they are fiberglass with a layer of carbon fiber over it, which won't yield huge weight losses.

I've got 3 so far. Tested fitment on my RS 1st one 13lbs with complete underside support structure. The last 2 are under 10lbs without the underside support or fastening hardware. The stock hood IIRC was just under 30lbs. That's a great price for a CF hood as I'd want more if I was selling them. Still have to figure out the mounting with out the underside support and vent inserts and placement.

Who are they made by? Are they fiberglass with a layer of carbon?
