Re: Stock hood weight?

The closest I've gotten is a guy that weighed his Camaro hood at 60lbs. The one I want is 40lbs-45lbs. Not exactly lightweight, but I think it has a steel inner structure frame, to keep it from flexing.

On my wifes Harwood, we ditched the struts completely. Some people have used dead struts. A steel hood would be too heavy for them, but lighter fiberglass hoods seem just right. Too bad no company has stepped up, and made a weaker strut, for fiberglass hoods.

I'll be sure to weigh my GTA hood, when I swap hoods. Not if, WHEN.
