Default Aftermarket hood

Okay, I've got another thread from a few days ago letting you all know that I'll probably be getting a GT500 within 6 months or so. However, one thing that has never really impressed me is the look of the stock hood. So, one of the first things I'll be doing is getting an aftermarket hood. Question is, which one.

Okay, I admit it, I'm lazy and was hoping everyone could flood this thread with links to what they think is cool, so I can sit back and look them over the easy way without having to actually go out and research this myself! :P

I'm definitely going to painting the hood (already have custom paint and stripes in mind) so raw carbon fiber isn't my thing, fiberglass would be fine.

What do you guys think? Cowl... Ram air... heat-extractor... bring on the opinions and links!!!

Odd, I kinda like the look of the OEM hood.

TruFiber seems to be the company of choice for quality fiberglass hoods.

You should check out their website and see what style you like the best.

Yeah, I've always like the look of the venom hood. But, call me stupid but what does "recessed" mean? I can't tell any difference from the pictures.

We are in the same boat, the differences are subtle. Let me know when you figure it out. lol

Let me clear up the "recessed" difference. Their non recessed hoods do NOT come with their twist lock hood pins. The recessed hood does. That is the only difference.

It's very similar to the venom in overall styling, but this one will actually work slightly better with the custom paint and stripes I have in mind. Thanks for sharing.

Hey thanks! Makes sense, I guess.
