Anyone have a red OEM hood for sale?
« on: March 21, 2019, 10:39:07 AM »
I'm going back and forth on carbon or OEM red hood.. Does anyone have a decent red hood they'd like to get rid of? I'm not scared to do a little sanding and polishing. Just want all the mounting tabs intact and no cracks.

Thanks guys.

 It would seem OEM plastic in decent condition is not so easy to come by. Ended up buying a flat carbon Fourwerx hood. I will keep an eye out for a decent red nose to be resurrected for future use.

Prices keep going up on OEM plastic but one thing I learned is its not worth restoring for resale. I got a faded red 87 tank for $30 & polished it up beautifully & when I put it on eBay i only got $35 for it. That hurt.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

I hear ya. I thought I would bring one back to life for my own use, but I just couldn't say no to the carbon fiber lol.
