    Jerry had one at one time I think but don't know if he liked it.

    You can do an RXX hood cheaper and loose 20lb's but you have 14 holes to fill on the sides once you remove the stock hood.

    If you are not painting the ski the one above would be way easier.

    Actually... I am planning to paint the main hood, and side fairings. Im really just interested in a carbon fiber upper storage compartment lid.

    Oh, I tied one from an XP and it looked like it would fit, the hinge was different and it did not work.

    There was a guy painting stuff to look carbon fiber and it turned out really well, you may look into that.

    I'm really starting to wonder about you. Here's a pic of it on a MC I painted and a couple other pieces I was playing with. There is no paint thats gonna look as good as the real thing though.

    click here if these pics wont blow up for you.
