Best looking vented hood?

I am wanting to purchase a vented hood for my 04 Z06. Would like to see some pics and comments on quality and fit.
Thanks Bill

I like the Motor City Mold or Mallett's best.

Mallett's resembles the ZL-1 racing hood of the late 60's and early 70's.
MCM is a close second.

I'm in the process of buying a MCM hood myself. After seeing all the sharp Zs with them at the Fest, I convinced my wife I had to have one. :cool:

It's a close call between the ACP Hood and the MCM Hood.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

I agree, I have the MCM hood. Can't go wrong with either one you choose. Good luck

I prefer the ACP. It's available in either glass, carbon, or glass with carbon center for those that want the unpainted stripe without the hatching in the painted areas on an all carbon hood.

ACP builds proven race parts and the functionality is unquestioned. The fit is no issue either.

I have the MCM hood made for the Magnuson. Great quality hood, fits great and is functional. The vent is placed to extract air at high speeds, reesulting in less turbulence under the car. Here's a pic of mine (more pics, just click link in my sig):

I'm torn between the ACP and MCM hoods, it definitely a two horse race though.
