Hi I'm looking to buy a 2 inch Cowl Hood from www.usbody.com and i was wondering if there is any reason to not get the "Race Weight Hood" over the "Heavy Duty Hood" I plan for the Car to be a Daily Driver but I'm wondering if there is any Real reason to spend the extra $230 on the Heavy duty hood over the race weight.

Thanks in advance Robert

My heavy duty hood from US body weighs as much as the steel one did. So if your looking to save weight buy the lite weight one. If you buy the other one I would use a prop rod not the springs. My hood has a slight bow in it from bieng open at the car shows all day and no prop rod. The bad thing with the lite hood is on windy days you have to have some place to keep it out of the wind or it will take off on you.

I have the race weight hood and I can take it off and put it on by myself. I also have their race weight trunk lid.
