    You can't make the hood apart of that one piece because you wouldn't be able to open it to fix or tune it up. As for the fenders and bumper, they can be moulded with fibreglass into one, some people do it that way. Watch out though as fibreglass tends to crack with heat and humidity.

    you could do a metal one just like the fiberglass..just weld it all together..kinda pointless to do a metal 1 piece..the whole point of it is to reduce weight
