Helion Composites '74+ short hoods for sale

Happy to announce Helion now offering '74+ Carbon Fiber hoods for sale.

The attached link shows and describes the part, process and challenges we have gone through to bring the parts to market.

Long story short, we are now offering a hood built with a proprietary process, certified aerospace grade materials and correct dims that weights sub ~6lbs and incorporates OEM mounting hardware.
Feel free to read through the description in the attached link.

Pricing now set at $750 exclusive of shipping. What we have seen for shipping in conus is roughly $100 via UPS oversize regardless of address.


Helion short hood tooling now finished

Regards,
Todd C

They are available for order, it takes 2-3 weeks to get three weeks to get through the process.
In addition to Ds1, who hood is leaving here in a couple of days, there is one that recently went to customer, I think the car is still in the build phase.


There are also a couple that have to non pelicans.

I'll try to dig up a couple of photos.

Numbers are kinda all over the place and i'm not sure why. Bill K said 56, GT-racing says 42 (911 Hood '74-'98 Part# 24) and I measured my former '87 911's steel hood to weigh 35 lbs. So I don't know who to believe. Maybe I misspoke my 35 lbs when I posted it on the forum years ago and should have said 45?

But I know I weighed mine on a bathroom scale by subtracting my weight. Bathroom scales aren't laser accurate but it's not off by 10 lbs. Otherwise my wife would be wise to the snafu when she goes to the doctor and would have told me to throw that POS liar scale in the garbage? Totally not kidding.

If Todd's hoods are anything like his roof skins, it's a work of art and fits like the original steel body parts.
