Carbon Fiber Hood test fit pic's.

I was contacted by RK Sport to test fit their new carbon fiber hood for the 2010 Camaro. I went by on Friday and checked out what they had going on and was very happy to help them out. I got a sneak peak at a Camaro 5 member from Texas's car that they are doing for SEMA and all I can say is I wish I could have taken that spot! That car is going to look AWESOME!!!!! Anyway, they did a direct replacement carbon fiber hood for our beloved Camaro's and it should be available shortly. As soon as I hear about final cost I'll pass it along. They also have several other very cool concepts coming down the pipe that are

So, without any further ado, I present Cammy sporting RK Sport's carbonfiber hood!

I have to say, this is another one of those "picks don't do it justice" moments. I can't wait for the production model!

I'm not sure what they would approve of me leaking out. They are pretty much doing EVERYTHING that you could imagine being done to the exterior of a Camaro. The guys are taking their time and doing stuff the right way, not just trying to rush parts out to the market like other seem to be doing. They have several very cool parts getting finished for their SEMA car. If I get the "OK" I'll let you guys know what to expect from them. I just don't want to upset anyone at RK Sport.

Don't think so. I believe it was over either fiberglass or a plastic shell. Not sure of exact compound. It seamed very light weight.

well i just looked at there site, i have an idea of what they do. so i can say they are not doing wide body. plus they are very limited on cars. no honda or scion and those are the most driven cars. saw camry. lol some of there kits looked nice but some were ugly. might have been the car

+1 was just thinking about the same thing. Maybe it just the shadow in the gap that make it look like the gap is wider.

This was mearly a test fitting. The hood was not properly aligned so the gaps were not correct. It was pushed back about a 1/4 inch too far.

Wheels, suspension and breaks are going to be completely different on their SEMA car. I got a look at the "artists rendering" of the wheels that are going on and they look pretty cool. Not sure what sizes that they are going with but they look fairly deep.

Hood Gaps

Rksport didn't want to adjust the factory settings of 2010SSRSM6 Camaro since they were putting his factory hood right back on. Agree a little fine tuning would of made the hood fit perfect, however with no adjustments, the hood fit great.

Agree, it was a cloudy day too, so the CF doesn't pop as much in the pictures.

Hood looks great on there...when I was out there it was the exact day it was coming out of the mold!

My car is the one there getting prepped for SEMA...I too have seen the drawings and with Elisio doing the work on the car there's no doubt it will turn out awesome! I can't wait to see it finished!

I wish I could share photos with everyone as I get new pics every other day and so far it's been awesome! Lots of plans for it and like already said, can't really go into to much detail as RKSport wants to debut the car at SEMA.

RKSport is a great company and I used a lot of their products in my last build...quality work!! I think everyone will agree once their stuff starts hitting the streets!
