Carbon hood

How do you find a hood that doesn't fit like ****. I have seen alot of those hoods that look terrible driving around in cali. I think they look good with the darker colored vehicles, and with the accord anything to lose weight is good. Another thing if you go with a carbon hood do you have to give up the hydraulic dampers?

you dont have to give up the hydrolics but you have to be extra careful when opening and closing the hood

getting rid of the lifts would be a good idea...just buy the hood prop from a I4 its cheap, less than 20 i think. The lifts will eventually cause your hood to bow out. Also if you want a hood that fits right buy a high quality hook, like VIS...mine fit perfect and didnt need any adjustment at all.
