    So I'm going to be installing a CF hood on the car, but I have no idea where to find lower pressure hood struts so I won't have to worry about damaging said hood.

    For anyone who's installed a CF hood, what struts are you using? Alternatively, can anyone suggest a good source for struts?

    Is it significantly lighter than stock? I heard that Seibon CF hood weighs about the same as OEM

    I have installed it, and it looks so damned good with the wrap. It does indeed weigh less than stock

    Yeah, it's a Seibon hood. Called em up, and they only had the one available. Wouldn't have gotten it if it was normal CF.

    When I get back from FL, we're going to put clear PPF on it. Looks amazing with it. He put a sample piece on so I could see how it'll look.
