I'm interested in getting a carbon fiber hood and was curious about the quality of different vendors. Would u recommend VIS or SEIBON? or is there another brand u guys prefer. Also curious if i should worry about water since there's vents. I'm planing to get an SRI in the future. I'm considering so far:

1) Vis Invader http://www.visracing.com/newcatalog/p1868/2000-2005-Toyota-Celica-2dr-Invader-Carbon-Fiber-Hood/product_info.html

2) Vis zyclone http://www.visracing.com/newcatalog/p8335/2000-2005-Toyota-Celica-2dr-Zyclone-Carbon-Fiber-Hood/product_info.html

3) Seibon VSII-style carbon http://www.seiboncarbon.com/pdut_detail_pic.asp?ItemID=396

i like the c-one replica, which is the second choice. I have owned a vis hood before, and I have no complaints about it. But i've also heard horrow stories where some people had trouble getting the hood to fit right.

Vis and Seibon have good quality.

I would just search this forum to see exactly which one you want.

Vis makes some other nice ones as well.

in that case oem with a tusnami hood scoop if you can find one in cf or just get one wrapped or custom made or the second one you said. and put a custom carbon fiber rear diffuser kinda like the 350z's have for a rear that would look soooo sexy with that set up esp if you could get a hood like the second one you posted. :thumbup:

too bad vis dont make it ne more and the c-one is too expensive. kind of want to stay away from oem look... the way i see it was that if i'm spending money for a new look, it shoudln't look oem heh.
