Aero Function Hoods let you remove a great deal of mass from your vehicle by replacing your original metal hood with this 1-piece replacement panel that's light weight, strong, and dent-resistant. Advanced manufacturing and patented composite materials result in a superior fitting piece that holds paint well, resists warping, and will hold up to hits from the hardest of road debris without cracking. Computer aided design ensures Aero Function's replacement hood will match the exact shape, contours, and tight gaps of your original OEM panel with integrity that will not diminish as long as you own your vehicle. Should you wish to match your vehicle's body color, we recommend painting by a professional body shop before installation.
