The problem with hoods is they difficult to ship. I have a red one. But no way to box the sucker up.

Exclamation

Not sure on a new OEM but they are available...

Should be fairly reasonable if you can find just a plain, used hood that isn't crashed or rusted out.

Find a local swap meet where you can save the freight cost...

That's interesting. I would be afraid that a light fiber glass hood would be flimsy and if you made a rigid hood it would wieght as much as the steel.

Alum strips add a lot of structure to a glass hood, back when I would make my 70s hoods I would mold in some alum angle in to the fender side edge, but those hoods were as flat as you could get a oem hood.
These 3rd gen hoods have a nice arch, but not enough to keep from using the same technique.
I'd contact UsBody down in Fla , I think they are are in Riverview? their race hoods are generally 10-15lbs, and the street hoods about 20-30 depending on style and auto make.
The tilt front end we had on my 75 drag truck was a total weight of 105 with hardware

Back when I would make my own stuff for my trucks, I could get a hood down to 7 lbs, 2 layers thick but , it was only good for a season, fenders about 5lbs, but same thing they would be cracked and broke by the end of a season.

So the flat prob weighs more than 55lbs then? Sounds like an even trade hopefully.
