CS/RC hood on a ST165??

Postby TRDcelica90 » Tue May 25, 2010 10:55 pm

ive been thinking of putting vents on my 165 because its gonna be a track car, but what would it take if i got a carbon fibre st185 hood and modified it to fit the 165?? off the top of my head i think the 185 is a bit wider?? and the front is less rounded and more square where the front meets..
so some bending and cutting??

if the mods arent too extreme it would be a fantastic cooling mod..

Way too much work to get it to fit right. I think there was a person selling fiberglass cs/rc hood vents either on here or ebay before. :shrug:

just putting vents in is a lot of work too, i dont just want the front bulge with vent but i also want the vents that push the air out near the windscreen..

so a CF 185 bonnet is the best option.. anyone know what the job actually requires??

^Yeah, he had it done properly. It looks great but cost a pretty penny :|

eric took a real cs hood and removed the frame and had it put on the 165 frame. that's how to do it. after paint i think body shop wise he is in 1800 dollars (plus shipping and the cost of a rc hood)
