What Are My Choices For Custom Hood Materials?

An automobile hood is one of the body panels on your vehicle with the largest surface area, and it's the one panel you'll be looking at every minute you're behind the wheel. Considering this, maybe you find it as odd as we do that many vehicle manufacturers have chosen to make modern hood panels flat and boring, thanks in large part to the search for low wind resistance.

If you've ever sat behind the wheel of a car built before the 1990s, you can recall stylish creases, muscular bulges, and contoured shapes that actually made you feel like you were at the helm of something interesting. Sports cars, high-performance cars, and luxury cars all used to have "power dome" shaped hoods that at least hinted there was some dynamite in the engine compartment.
