RXX Hood Swap ????
I am getting part #'s togather now and need a grab bar in black.
Will the RX DI part fit?
So far parts are around $100 not counting the cost of the hood.
If I get a new grab bar you can add $50 to the total.
My other option is to paint my bar black??? But $50 would be so much easier, and look better.
I will order my gel coat repair kit tomorrow. They have never mixed a grey metallic so I suppose I will be the first. For all of you with colored boats yours will be lots easier to patch the holes.
When I get started I will snap pics as I go and get a list of part #'s togather along with each items price.

Cool deal David. Take plenty of pics along the way. I may end up doing this mod over winter.

David, how is this project coming along?
Is there any difference in using the RXX hood VS the RX hood?

Both hoods are the same except the RXX has no mirror holes to fill, the finish is just a texture finish on the RXX and RX is painted.
The stock trim pieces will work other than the color for me (silver).
I'm using the RXX trim pieces now that I have gotten rid of the reverse.
On another note a hood for a GTI LE will also fit, just picked one up on ebay for 40 bucks (hood shell and compartment shell)

Brent, if you don't end up doing anything with the GTI hood i'll buy it from you.

The RXX hood is lighter than the RX by 25% I have heard.
The RXX hood is the same material as the old style hoods from all the other boats.
I will weight these things as I swap them out tomorrow so I can tell how much a differance it will make.
