comparing to your metal CS one is it a total exact replica. And whats the weight compared to the OEM one is the weight cut in half.

yeah less than half weight - its 18 compared to 41 pounds.

And its an exact repllica from the top. The bottom is different, but not in a bad way, just less stringers to add weight.

It wasn't Smaay we waited on it was fiber images. I ordered it the end of July and just got it two weeks ago. But man is it sweet.... :D

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who realizes this.

Speaking of which, I need to get a hold of him about my hood.. I shouldve gotten the 3rd one, but held off until now since I wasn't desperate to have it asap like some of the other guys..

But now I'm ready.. :D

I am think people might want to look into the nozzles that are built into wiper blades.

I thought about getting a set from the Z for the Celica.

If by "holes" you mean "vents" then no. They are there to let hot air out.

I grew up in "buttsford". Many, many moons ago...
