   The best reason for doing it the way I described is the cost factor.
 Junkyard 4000 and coupe hoods are very cheap as are the donor vents. I paid
 a whopping $5.00 for my vent.  I even put it in my original hood since it
was sh*t anyway.  If I get around to a full paint job I will then look harder
at the Carbon fiber hood.  I have talked to Todd about fenders AND the hoods.
 I can't see spending ~ $2000.00 for a hood and fenders. I'm in business too,
but I don't agree with most on the fact that carbon fiber should cost as much
as it does.

Is it really illegal to put a vent in your hood for that class?  If so, an
aftermarket hood must be equally illegal.
