Question I finally found it! AF-1 (GTR) hood

What's going everybody? I've finally found the hood I've been looking for for sometime now and I finally bite the bullet and ordered one. The only concern I have now is what can I use to keep the hood down. I dont want to cut into the hood or use hood pins what other alternates are there?

Wouldn't you reuse the factory latch?

Reading their installation page it says "Re-install hood latch and adjust for fitment. (If the hood is latched but not fully close, the latch might need to be adjusted shorter. If the hood does not latch down, the latch might need to be adjusted longer.". Which makes me think you just reuse the factory latch...

I think the pins are only used to keep the hood from flapping around at high speed. Fibre glass not as strong as CF or the OEM hood

Yea I just ordered the hood and now I'm debating on getting either the 1m front bumper
http://www.duraflexbodykits.com/2007...-p-572771.html
or the Executive Coutour rear bumper next.http://www.duraflexbodykits.com/2007...-p-265948.html
With those last two pieces I think I would be completely satisfied with everything. Performance wise, I'm done there's nothing else I would want, besides doing a single turbo conversion, which is completely out the picture now.

If those are made of fiber glass you might want to think twice bro, if someone bumps you it's going to crack. Just my 2 pennies

Alright the hood finally came in today! I was very impressed with the overall delivery from Duraflexbodykits.com. The whole process was smooth and fast. I'm going to try and get the hood painted, by the end of the week, and hopefully if everything goes smoothly I will definitely be ordering the 1m bumper from them as well.

I bit the bullet and ordered the 1M bumper and received it today . For the most part everything is good, but I am wondering about the fog lights area I'm not sure if there's suppose to be grilles there or not. Anyways I was looking up a few photos and I came across this one guy that had the bumper with leds. I've tried to get into contact with him but found out that the picture is over two years old, so I'm not sure if he's still active or not. Does anyone know where I could order these leds from? I think they would compliment the bumper nicely, especially since I'm not going to have my fogs any more

I'm just waiting on my turbos to get sent back. My cars been down for a month now. I had a bad experience with USPS, earlier this month in which they lost my package for 3 weeks. Once they arrive, I'm having everything installed in one go. I'm excited to see how this turns out.

Yea I've been wanting this setup for awhile, but I was stationed in Germany and to have anything shipped over the cost was outrageous. The shipping itself costed more than the parts. As if now, I'm waiting on my second set of VTT stg 2s, hopefully I can get them next week.
