Its about 7 lbs lighter than stock. I dont have close- up of the edges but the fit is excellent. 3 mm on both side edges between hood and fender. Our hoods are robotically trimmed, and bonded using special fixtures. Along with special internal hardware this insures a perfect OE looking fit. We have built over 50000 hoods for brand new cars (Camaro SS). We are just entering the aftermarket import scene with this hood and 5 others.

aight, thanks man!:thumbs up:
hmm, i see that your site even has an option for our french buds. where are you guys based?

you should look into manufacturing OEM style CF hoods. not a lot of CF hood manufacturers comes close to fitment and quality. FiberImages already lost their game ever since one of their most important employee left. Benen Industries is okay but i've heard that their hoods are not as light as a CF hood should be (someone correct me if i'm wrong). not really flaming them, but IT is a competitive market.

Ok ummm, not to flame you but can you please explain to me how this hood would give me added horsepower... :roll:

And from the picture taken of the bottom of the hood, those "scoops" don't seem to have any function at all... i dunno, just my two cents...
