My Steeda cowl hood was delivered today and I'm going to install it this weekend. The factory hood has a rubber seal between it and the cowl. Does a fiberglass hood need that seal?:headscratch:

What does the instructions say? and is there a place for the seal in the new hood? You could try it and if you don't like it then glue it on.

There is no instruction.

The cervini's hood that I just got uses the factory rubber seal - I've not put it on yet - but plan to.

I can't say about your specific hood. But I have the California Dreamin' hood and have not had the rubber seal on it for over a year. No issues. I don't think there is any room for it anyway.

I have the TruFber GT-S hood and yes, I took the weatherstrip off the OEM hood and drilled/installed on the new hood. This is to prevent any engine bay gases from getting to the cowl and then into the passenger compartment.:bigthumbsup

It doesnt really matter, i have a cervini hood and dont have one on mine, and its a daily driver. there shouldnt be that much water coming in from the back.

It's not needed. And I'm not sure what peewee was talking about gases getting into the cowl?


If the complete underside of the hood is a finished paint job, looks good that way.
