    So after 4 long months my hood is finally in.


    I don't know though, might be too much carbon
    that good old VIS 2 evo hood, only imperfection is this side has more of a gap than the other side, (the seam between the hood and fender)

    Gotta replace those M3 mirrors with the carbon fiber slr ones soon

    My 1st 2000si, the one I did the boosted b16b swap in was the electron blue but this one originally it was the Si black, but I had it painted what I call midnight blue which was just black with blue pearl so when the light hits it it looks blue. But it's gonna be painted back black again with a lil something on the rocker panels which I won't tell now, rather not start the flame fest until it's done :lol:

    the only bad thing is the wiper blades.

    how does the carbon fiber match up? i know different companies look different.

    you're a hooker.

    this is what it looks like on a real car, though.

    well the middle vents are to vent air out of the engine bay. the scoop on the side is for the air cleaner - which on a stock EVO the air cleaner is located right behind the scoop.

    on my car the filter is on the opposite side lol

    The blades are coming off to, lol going back to a sort of stock blade that I came across on ClearPlus Windshield Products
    Suprisingly they match up well, I was thinking the same thing as I was taking the hood out of the box. Erebuni, VIS, the weaves are gonna be off, but nope.

    Hey I figured, EM1, E5, I can pull it off :D jp. Why does your's look like it only has one scoop.

    They lead to nowhere on mine :ph34r:

    How is the quality of the erebuni carbon fenders? I had a vis hood on my mirage and was not to satisfied on the quality or customer service.
