Showstopper heat extractor hood on Victory Red

We are currently on the process of installing our new heat extractor hood on a victory red car. The customer likes to take his car on the track quite often so this should help reduce some underhood temps. We will keep you posted throughout the process.

They are glass. Weight is very comparable to stock. Don't know exact numbers though.

Here it is, the finished product. Sorry for the crappy cell pic, the halogen lights didn't play well. Trust me it looks awesome. I'll try and get some sharper pictures of the underside as well. As always, great job Pete.

Pete did my original stripe job, and I liked it enough to want it again. Silver outlines with carbon flash metallic stripes. The underside of the hood is painted CFM to mimic a large hood liner. Looks awesome with my matching under the hood stuff.
