Black fiberglass hood now avilable.

This is the 19.5#, high quality, stock looking hood, some of you have said you wanted.

On my Pearlie.

And on my Claret.
They are made by a Cumberland Maryland Company, Class Glass & Performance, that has been building high quality automotive parts since 1990.
They are available, through me, or suby-crosser, for $350.00, in black gel coat.
There are more pictures in my locker.

I got to see the hood on Tom's Pearlie over the weekend at the Subaru Challenge. Very nice quality and fit There will be one on the racer when we can come up with the funding.

Fixed your post. My 2cents are it is a VERY GOOD product. Does not need painted as the finish is very good from factory. Its light as can be but it also has some strength to it. It doesn't bend in 2 when you hold it up like some of the hoods I saw at the challenge on various imprezas. Worth every penny!!

If you want the windshield washers installed on the hood, I can, or you can drill them in the stock location, or farther back
I am going to put mine on the W.W. arms using GM nozzels,for a more streamlined look.

Tom,
How the ww nozzles mount could make or break the deal for me (j/k!!)....when do you think you'll get your hands on some GM nozzles and take some pics of the install (I'd like to have an install that doesn't require zip ties to have it stay on the wiper arm....)

When I weighed my spare stock hood I got 48#s on my digital scale, before I gutted it down to 37#s by removing the underhood bracing.
Making it shake, flap, flex, and sound like a Cavalier hood.
When they (Class Glass) weighed the hood they used for the mold they got 44#s as I remember
The new street weight hood, like the one on my car weighs, (according to Class Glass) 19.5#s!
It feels VERY light!
When I get the chance I'll bring my digital scale down to them and weigh my old Claret hood and the next street weight black fiberglass one.
The street weight hood has TWO layers of 2oz fiberglass for the hood surface, and TWO layers to make the underhood bracing, and 4 layers where the "nutzerts" go.
BTW, a single layer lift off race weight one will weigh about 10-11#s.
The race weight hood will have one layer of 2oz fiberglass, and 1 layer of 6oz backing where the MANDATORY hood pins go.
More later.
