I'm not a big fan of carbon fiber either (but that's just my personal opinion). I have a friend who does paint work and he says that you can't paint CF either and expect it to last (it won't).

If I could get the VIS hood in aluminum, I'd be all over it.

supposdly this hood has a UV protectant on it, hence the shine that it has, you can paint right over this top coat without issue, according to the company, and backed up by a few other C5 members.

I'll be curious to see what they say in a year or two about the paint. I hope it holds up for them.

Did you check the price on it i'd rather buy me a new hood ,i think the HEX vents are better for cooling the engine bay and cheaper.

Those things are outrageously expensive.

spent some time up at LoveFab this weekend,

was able to uninstall the KB BAP, clean up the front metal piece that held the GM Performance emblem, and installed a Hertitage grill and new emblem from EmblemPros.

i like it

These hoses.

You can run them underneath if the LSX is similar to the LS3.
