When it comes to replacing body panels, the hood is arguably the most popular body panel to replace. Vehicle hoods are a part of the front fascia, complementing the headlights, bumper and fenders. When shopping for an aftermarket hood, some of the criteria to consider include weight reduction, aesthetics and cooling. Manufactured from lightweight materials such as fiberglass or carbon fiber, aftermarket hoods can lend a sporty appearance to a vehicle. Some designs incorporate cooling vents to permit heat to escape or to improve the efficiency of heat exchangers. Others offer additional clearance for power adders such as superchargers. Aftermarket hoods offer a functional and fashionable upgrade to any vehicle.
