Default Feeler: CarbonSignal V1 Limited-Edition Hood

Ok guys, so we are getting lots of pms regarding the hood which we did for docaam.

The design is inspired from the Superleggera hood on 380RS, but the vents are slightly shorter as the radiator place frame restricted us to go all the way down when we were making it, TBH, i really liked the outcome cause it came out aggressive yet in not over done. and since there are not much of options of aftermarket hood for the Z34, we are proud to have a NEW option added to the community. I believe VIS is making something similar just the vents are bigger and all same size while our design is more rounded and edges are deeper and refined.

The interest for this design was there since a while now, we even got a request from Nitruoz to get it done for him but we got busy with the fenders and the new items, and then docaam came to us to do it on urgent matter as he was wrapping his car.

So now we worked out some pricing and can offer the hood as the following:

CarbonSignal Hood V1 Non-painted: 795$ + Shipping

50$ OFF for return customers.


Break down:
New OEM hood = 400$+ -
labour charge = 395$*

We are not selling this hood in mass but we will make it as a Limited-Edition hood with limited spots of confirmed orders. We will be using BRAND NEW OEM hood then we will make fiberglass insert into it, that way you get 100% garanteed fitments. We will order the hood once orders are confirmed. (1st come 1st serve)

Note: we can do Custom one-OFF Design for those who are interested and pricing can be worked out depends on the request.
and when we say One-OFF.. then it means we will not do it to anyone else but YOU (Pm for special request)

As courtesy to Nitrouz since he was the 1st one to request, he will be reserved for the 1st hood.

1) Nitrouz*

Was wondering, any chance the vents go further down or is that the maximum you can go? maybe few inches or so before it meets the radiator place frame, or similar to the placement of the VIS hood

Thats the maximum we would feel safe to make the vent without having to worry about fitment issue.

Hood looks good, but would be even better with some vents that curved to match the lines of the hood angles and car a bit more, its a bit too angular for me vs the rest of the car. Def better than the VIS though which looks "hole-punched" out.

As mentioned this is a limited edition of 5 spots only. You gotta treat the wify/gf and then the modding will continue

I never thought of that, but then we will have to change our hoods name everytime because you change parts more than you change underwear

Not really as this hood will be done in house in Dubai and shipping back and forth could get expensive.

I would be down only if you could use my stock hood. Makes no financial sense NOT to get it down that way. Possibly UA will offer this deal as well so those of us in the US can do a hood swap?
