the SS hood should be fiberglass and therefore lighter. the spoiler might weigh a slight bit more due to the extra material in it.

No - The hood of the Camaro is aluminum, not sure about the spoiler.

The OEM SS hood is not fiberglass, it is a urethane composite. Some reproductions are fiberglass.

Just wondering, wouldn't you want something with a bit more stiffness? Fiberglass seems a bit...well...flimsy.

Just thinking...

its more flexible than a steel hood that has bracing, but it is still stiff. and lighter weight. ive got a fiberglass hood on my car and it does flex some, but not enough to where its going to break anything. granted I could bend/break it easier than a stock hood, but im not actively trying to do that.

actually, I remember an article where they made cf fenders and they weighed roughly the same as the stock ones. not to mention, I ususally run without the hood at the track anyway. safer than losing it halfway down.

unless its a trim to fit hood, any aftermarket hood should fit just fine. they've only had a decade or more to get the dimensions and fit correct. lol

Recommend you consult with whoever's doing the body work/painting. Have they done any before?

You will spend more $$$/time fitting an aftermarket hood. There are some quality aftermarket units available, but if you get a poor fit it, it can take a lot to make it right.
