id have to say the weight difference is about 20 lbs, the fit was ok but like i said i massaged it a bit and got it lookin good(ie. unbolted fenders and pushed them in a lil ) not a big deal tho, install took like an hour by myself. finish is very good all the weaving is even and no blemishes

Looks nice, especially with the black roundel. Just curious, any reason to not also do the black roundels on the wheels?

Love the hood. The subtle way is the way to go!

Question: it looks like the hood has a gap between it and the headlights. Is this correct? I don't recall if the stock hood has that large of a gap.
