Thread: Best Carbon Fiber Hood... VIS?

    Default Best Carbon Fiber Hood... VIS?

    So I am wanting to paint and install a carbon fiber hood. Fiberglass seems that it just never ends up looking 100% be it seams or wavy. I am hearing that carbon fiber would be better and looking for suggestions of the SRT style, bigger the scoop the better, carbon fiber hood for my 2017. I have heard several say VIS however on their wibesite they do not list 2017 then I found this...

    Any suggestions, any experience painting a carbon fiber hood and the outcome?

    Called VIS and this hood they make is carbon fiber on top and fiberglass underneath all though they can make an all carbon fiber version for more money of course which which is what I would want just to make it stronger.

    The 09-18s all use the same hood shape, only difference with the reg and Sport hood is purely aesthetics.

    Matt, who owned the blue truck pictured, told me their hood was chincy and flexed bad without hoodpins and that's where they lost me. Hoodpins=rice
