STOUT (japan) FRP hood for the ST185

Postby roo » Sun Oct 24, 2004 9:21 pm

Does anyone have any info on this? I was looking though our STOUT catalog and they list an FRP hood for the ST185 but there is no picture and no details on if it's for the regular GT-FOUR or the RC/CS Edition...

i found a few other sites that list it but still no pics or further details... it's roughly $500 after freight from Japan...I'm considering bringing one over to get the skinny on it.

$500 isnt bad for a FRP hood.. Its definitely gonna be lighter than stock and $500 after freight is good considering a new RC hood (if you can find one) at a dealer costs more than that..

What I'm wondering is the quality, fitment, and the way it looks.. Cuz since Japan had both hoods, I'm wondering which one these hoods would be made for.. the RC vent, or the stock scoop..

Silly question, what does FRP stand for?

Isnt it fiberglass reinfoced polyurathane? Dont you pull a poly resin into the fiberglass and mold the shape?

FRP = Fiberglass

We normally say Fiberglass reinforced plastic but Wayne is right when it comes to the actual material makeup.

These prices are about $300 cheaper than I could have imagined. Stout hoods I can definately say are quality and fit great. We've sold tons of them for other cars and one of the guys who works here has one on his FD RX-7.

I've never personally seen Cusco aero parts but all the other cusco parts i'e seen are hella nice and definately precision.

Would you give a discount or something to anyone willing to take the risk and get one?

I added the hoods to the Bulletproof website:

STOUT (185)
http://www.bulletproofautomotive.com/ca ... hp?ID=3493

Cusco (165. 185)
http://www.bulletproofautomotive.com/ca ... hp?ID=3494
http://www.bulletproofautomotive.com/ca ... hp?ID=3495


I'm assuming the ST165 hood is ventless like stock, however, the ST185 hoods may be like the base model ST185 or the RC model hoods. (unknown) I'm going to order one next week if nobody else does.

If someone is willing to buy one of either the ST185 Cusco or STOUT hoods this week, I will give them a major discount so that we can get one over here and find ore out about them.

If one of them is RC style with vent and not a scoop, I'll probably get it.. I don't need the scoop anymore.. :D

But it'd help if we could find some pics..
