will it use the factory hood hinges and latch? does it need to have pins due to "floppyness" at high speeds?

anyone know what the stock hood weighs?

no weight savings there...our stockers are thin and light. maybe a pound or 2 I owuld think.

if the hood is 10-20lbs its worth it imo

I took mine off and it was pretty darn heavy. I think at least close to 50 lbs. With two guys lifting it, it's better, but you know it's heavy. I put on a fiberglass hood, it weighs around 20-25 pounds. I'll weigh it when i get home from the sandbox.

it comes as a complete bolt on, but no hood pins. I would recommend getting them tho.

a light hood is gonna need hoodpins if you dont want it to flop...

THe hood on my car i bought local off one of the local import forums... its the lightest hood i have picked up.. And i have had the harwood hoods.. NOt sure on the brand but its thin, it flaps on the corners when i go fast, but it is LIGHT.
