Look at this awesome photograph, that's Alex Mustang last Saturday (8-13-2011) at the Burnout Show, anyone who is a Mustang lover have to admit this is an awesome shot, no?! And look at that hood...

I admit it...this is most probably a stupid question but. What happens when rain/sleet/bugs/road debris fly in that open area and into the engine bay?

I am assuming you can just spray wash off the engine with no issues???? Assuming the water/mosture from driving inthe rain doesnt hurt anything.

Apologize in adance for the newb type question.

I don't think it's a stupid question, I was wondering myself...

IMO i would get some silver mesh and have it custom installed on the inside of the scoop to help with debris and all that

I came close to getting the saleen hood but it was going to cost $2000 to get the hood and have it painted/mounted. too much IMO. Stock hood is fine for me until I just HAVE to spend $2000 on my car.

I don't really like any other hoods.

I've also read on numerous forums that VIS quality is hit or miss with the fiberglass and that a few guys on other forums with carbon fiber VIS hoods had layers separating in summer heat.

Went to see the Saleen Hood again today, in person, as I was going for my Roush Louvers, and I'm getting really close to pull the trigger on that awesome hood!!
Here are some more pictures of it, I took some close up ones on the hood scoop, inside & out...

Some updates on the Saleen Hood: out of stock, none available until minimum 2 months!
I got this from Saleen, my Dealership and Stage 3 Motorsports.

"Regarding the Saleen hood I called them and inquired about the hood and looks like the hood is on back order right now and they said they wont have any available for about 2 months,and the price is about 1,583.92 cause they charge about 170 for freight since they have to ship something so big from the east coast to the west coast." (From my Dealership)

American Muscle has the Saleen hood too. I don't remember them having it available before. It too is Out of Stock though. Such a great looking hood, wonder if I could paint it myself *shakes spray paint can*

Well just bought the Saleen Hood. Been wanting one, and finally decide to do it. Got it from Stage 3 for 1299.00 with Free Shipping. Even if it is on back order I know I will be getting it in a few months and is worth waiting for. Going to have my stripes painted on when I do the hood, and may go with a Ghost Stripe for a very subtle look.

Congratulations!! Yup that's the best hood to me!
I'll order mine also, maybe directly through Saleen if they do free shipping, otherwise I'll do it with American Muscle or Stage 3 like you.
There is about 2 months wait, I wonder why... Everyone want that hood maybe!
Make sure you'll post pictures here when you'll have it!
