Going into this project build I was already set on ditching the OEM mega heavy steel hood. (See pic below)
Since this car will see track duty I need to lose as much weight as possible.
I searched around to see if there was a carbon fiber hood for this 97′ Impreza that didn’t look gaudy. I found a carbon fiber Impreza RS style hood (that looked perfect on the Renner Sports GC8.)
I wanted something that looked close to the OEM Impreza RS 2.5 version. I thought the Seibon option looked decent enough. I didn’t want a hood with a giant scoop nor tons of gills/vents in the hood.
So, ordered it and the hood arrived a few days later.
