RKSport Carbon Fiber OEM Hood

Wanted to pass on some pics I got today from RKSport. This is their OEM carbon fiber hood...fresh from the mold!

As some of you may know...my Camaro SS is at their shop getting prepped and prepared for SEMA 2009...this is one of many products I know they are going to bring to the table for all of us 2010 Camaro owners!

It's not been polished yet or the edges cleaned up but it's the first shots of it! oooooohhhhh...spy shots!

More to come from these guys!!

Enjoy!

Looking very promising...

Weight savings? Suggested Retail?

BTW, say "Hi!" to "Bob"...

I'd have to ask on the weight differences...pricing he said was still being worked.

I'll let Bob know you said hi!

Tell them to make a trunk lid and spoiler too. It would be sweet to mask off the rally stripes on those and paint the rest body color.

Well finally someone is putting out a hood! Even though I never understood the point in paying so much for CF just to have the stock look again! A scoop or cowl would have been nice!

Agreed. Why not make the Bumblebee hood? That would sell for sure, and it's a killer look. Nice job on this though. What's the underside look like?

I saw the underside on Monday...a bit different than stock and nice looking...they do plan a couple other hoods too...

Trunk lid not sure on...spoiler is a go last I heard.

It would look great taped off and the rally stripes left!

x3 on the taped off ralley stripes with the rest of the hood painted body color. Would look even better is they did the front facia in CF and had the CF stripes come all the way down to the top of the grill area. Then same on the trunk lid and spoiler... I have a black 2SS that I would love to do this to (along with a custom CF GFX like the ZR1) then get the CF interior kit as soon as they figure out the ABL. With CF inlaid in the bowties and all the emblems powdercoated black chrome, some custom black chrome split 5 spoke wheels with CF rims.

OK, I know this would run me about $50K but I can dream right?

Any pricing on this yet? Since the Nickey hood is going for $1600 and is functional, I'd be interested in seeing what this goes for. Still holding out for a BB hood. Anybody?
