I've been looking around for a replacement lip for this '94's Xenon Kit, and at the same time, looking on the net for aftermarket hoods. But I haven't really found any. And yet I see pics of them all the time on here.

So who sells aftermarket hoods for MN12? The more styles the better. I have no idea what I want.

linkie no workie. Has "..." in it.


What does an "89-83 Cervinis Ram Air hood " look like? 83? Is that a typo or something?

Edit: Figured out the link. $500 for ram air, pictured on a car with the same Xenon Kit:



Me like very much. But I'd still be curious about that SoCal hood.

yes its a typo. Cervinis makes it. Unless you plan on fabbing fiberglass to make the hood fit the 94-95 lights, it wont fit right. Also, almost no one makes cowl or ram air hoods for our cars. The quality and packaging of these hoods leave something to do desired. With that said, be prepared to spend alot of chedder to make it fit and look right....

Are 95 lights too small or too large? Cutting and sanding down fiberglass is a whole heck of a lot easier than building it up.

hey..thats my car...

i didn't get the hood from them, but i believe it's the same. They get it from fast glass (use to be called legendary). I got lucky with my hood. ALOT of ppl had to spent around 500 to make it fit properly and flow with the rest of the car. I guess the mold that mine was made out of was right. Do a search, you'll find out a lot. ALOT of ppl also had the hood damaged multiple times upon delivery and some ppl never even recieved the hood, while others waited MONTHS, and i do mean like 6 plus months for it.

Just giving u all the dirty details to it. BTW, i got mine when the company was only a few hours away from me so if i had problems with them i would be able to handle them. Now i believe they are located in FL.

That sucks, that the limited selection for our MN-12s is garbage. I really don't feel like taking a risk and loosing $500. Because then it will cost me $200 to fly down to FL to whop the guy's a$$ and get my money back. So I might not be worth it.

If only the age classic hoods fit as well as they do in the pic. I spent nearly $1000 + the $409 to get mine to fit. (not fit right, but fit) the lower portion of the hood that connects with the grill, is about 3" of space on mine. At the right angle you can see some of my red paint under the hood. Not to mention that you better have some hood pins handy, b/c they don't shut well (at least mine didn't) Also, it took me 3 months to get it. Age classic was the middle man for legendary and they kept blaming them for the reason it took so long.

BTW: Anyone know where I can get some light weight shocks for my hood?

"ALL" Fiberglass Hoods require some sanding, shaving, triming, and filler to have a fit and look of a factory hood. Then they need painting. If you want one, expect to pay from $500-1000 for a body shop to do it for you, if you do not have the knowledge to do it your self. Mine is far from perfect, but I did not expect it to be. I have one to provide enough room for the new engine. For someone that is getting one for use with a car that is mainly for show use, expect to pay $1,000-1500 for body shop work to correct the flaws that the companys allow to get through. It's no wonder the US is loosing out in the tech world, we are building junk.

I'm not talking about the company...i'm talking about that style of hood. There's a couple other places that carry them.
