Default 2 Or 3 Inch Cowl

I been looking for a hood and I decided on a cowl. I just cant find many pics of them.

I know I dont want a Cervinis, but I was looking at something smooth like the Trufiber. I just cant really get a good feel for the size that I want. So I looking for any pics that anyone has. I have searched around and I need some help finding pics espcially pics with sizes

Unless you're gonna race the car, I strongly suggest no more than 3" for maneuvering purposes on a DD...
It usually comes with 2,5" or 4" by most brands though, so you're most likely gonna get the 2,5 one.

Got my Steeda street 2.5" cowl last summer. Can be used without hood-pins, but I bought it used so it already had the pins mounted. Has washer nozel provisions also. Here are a few various pics to help you out..

Front






Side




Cockpit



Love the hood; no regrets; glad I didnt go any taller for DD.

I've heard too many nightmares about Cruzin concept, I wouldn't deal with them.

Trufiber makes a 3".
