    Snsj carbon hoods

    Just putting this out there to see if there is interest or not. Within the next couple months i will be pulling a mold off of my lowered SNSJ hood and laying up a Carbon Fiber one for myself. When completed I will post pictures, building a mold for a couple hoods is cheap, building a mold to build multiple hoods is expensive and time consuming. Just trying to gauge interest before i invest in a nice re-usable mold build.

    The Hoods would be 100% carbon, lowered (to seam) with a flat inner tray that has enough clearance for b-pipe manifolds and tall velocity stacks, and two 2.5" flanges for intake drop hoses. They will not be drilled for hood latches but those areas will be accessible for drilling and through bolting.

    They will be vacuum infused therefore material to resin ratio is optimal for strength and weight. they will have a raw carbon appearance rather than white gel coat.

    price should come in between $675-$800 depending on strength needed for surf riding or recreational.

    Weight will be around 8 lbs

    lead time on a single order would be 3 weeks (its a hobby)

    Please respond if you would be interested.

    Thank You

    Good to see someone showing some love for the SN! Are you going to do a nose piece as well?

    Not that I'm not interested or naysaying but CarterB does lightweight lowered hoods for just over 500 bucks. I'd be interested at a lower price point with a finished product to inspect.

    this will be a complete hood. Not a modified factory hood.

    No, there are several on the market already.

    To be honest, no there really are not. Tom21 I don't think makes the SN nose piece anymore... 24/7 same thing. CarterB makes the rocker kit, but that's it. And they're usually made to order.

    I feel squares will be making a comeback very soon. People are getting fed up with stock RN 61x for $5k.

    well if thatís the case I can always pull a mold off mine once it is completed. Stay tuned!

    thank you for the input so far

    Re: Snsj carbon hoods

    Are you doing carbon work now or is this new to you? I do a few carbon parts for the skis but I never get to see what other people are doing. If you have any pics it would be cool to see. Good luck with the hood they should sell.
