I did a lot of searching on a place called "Fiberboy Fiberglass" and his products got very good reviews.

If you check out his site, he doesn't list all of the parts he makes, you need to contact him.

I'm also going with him because he makes a 5" cowl where everyone else seems to favor 4" and 6".

I know he makes bumpers and one for my Camaro goes for $100.

Haven't tried fiberboy, but they make a cowl hood for a LUV, good reviews on those from folks who have tried them...

Do you know anyone personally that has tried them?

All I know, from what I've been told is, the guy is a one man team and he takes pride in his work and the parts he makes fits and looks good.

Personally no, several forum members have on the LUV site have. They have all been pleased...

Feather carbon hoods are the shit hands down. Way better than the up22 junk!

Here is a pic of my feature carbon hood with 10 dzus fasteners. Weighs 9 lbs. Didn't require any body work.

Same as there site said it was 200.00 for the hood and 98.32 shipping to where I live

A few of the posts I could copy-n-paste off the LUV board. Best I can do...

If you follow the link I posted earlier concerning feather carbon, that posting made my mind up about him.

He told me at one time he could save me shipping and bring the hood up to Super Chevy here at Maple Grove but boy his work does not impress me.

As for Unlimited Products, I can't complain because I got one of their cowl hoods for my Camaro and it actually fits very good. But I've also had this hood for over 20 years, back when people actually gave a chit......

Thanks

Looks good John :thumb: :thumb:

You made the comment that you had to use more dzus fasteners then you wanted, to me that looks about the right amount?

Here is something I have been debating, are you going to run a trunk gasket?

Eastwood makes some nice tools huh?

A friend of mine has the shrinker/ stretcher tool and it bailed him out more the once.

If you've got a decklid that doesn't need "tied down", you don't really need the ones in the middle. I've seen Nova's with only 6 (3 per side) dzus's that seem to do just fine.

No - no trunk gasket on this deal.

Just an update and my personal opinion, but I just got my 5" cowl hood from Allen @ Fiberboy Fiberglass and all I can say is, it is one very nice piece of work. I have been told that Allen is very picky when it comes to quality and sure enough, that comment is true. I paid a total of $405.00 which included shipping.

He also makes bumpers but at the time, I couldn't get a hold of Allen, so ordered one from Advantage fiberglass (same company John got his deck lid from) and that was also very nice.
