Usually, the form and shape of your vehicle carries the standard marque of its manufacturer's design. Located at the front fascia of your ride, your car hood is molded and contoured to perfection to exude a commanding presence; it also serves as a protective cover to your engine preventing the intrusion of water and debris. Its high grade and durable construction effectively shields of rainfall, snow, hail, or debris that may reach into your engine system and disrupt smooth operations. Just imagine how unsightly your vehicle is without your heavy duty hood. Keeping its good quality ensures excellent engine performance in keeping it far from damages while simply looking great on the front spread of your vehicle. Hoods are typically crafted from steel and fiberglass or carbon fiber but aluminum constructions are already getting more and more popular for its malleability, strength, and handling features which are perfect if you want to customize the look and form of your vehicle. The hood can be flopped up when you need to access your engine. It has fasteners and supports that hold it upright and prevent accidents while having your routine maintenance done. With secured locking features, it is held down by a concealed latch with hood pins.

For added safety features, hood designs are modified to limit the severity of injuries on pedestrian crash. More advanced automotive designs make use of bonnet/hood as an active structure pushing few centimeters away from hard motor parts by means of a mechanical spring force or pyrotechnic devices. With the increasing popularity of customizing the look of your vehicle, you car hood is commonly overlooked for modification in engine cooling system and more stylish form. In case your stock hood is already rusty and ruined, stop fretting on this unsightly abomination.

Things to Look at When You’re Still Undecided on what hood to get

Unless you got a ride meant for the strip, show, or summer Sunday drives, having a hood to cover your engine can safeguard most of its components from the outside elements. Besides, hood designs can even help you facilitate better air flow. Thus, it can help reduce the drag coefficient. More than that, the material of your hood can contribute to reducing the weight at the front of your vehicle. So if you are still undecided with the kind of hood you are getting, you might want to consider the following factors.

Are you keeping your vehicle stock or are you thinking about upgrades?

You have to thoroughly compare the benefits of having a stock hood versus getting an aftermarket hood. Keeping an OE hood means that you get to preserve the appearance of your ride. More than that, it can potentially keep its value at a more secured level. On the other hand, an aftermarket hood can provide bigger room for engine upgrades like bigger air filters, supercharger or turbocharger systems. Additional vents can also improve the air flow and cooling of your engine. But your ride will not pass as original anymore, at least on the outside.

Choosing the composition of your hood.

These days, there are a variety of materials used to build your hood. The compositions offer different characteristics that can affect the integrity, cooling, weight and performance of your vehicle. Sometimes, it can also give you extra appeal depending on the car scene you are in. Here are the four that are commonly used to construct a hood:

  1. Steel
  2. Carbon fiber
  3. Fiberglass
  4. Aluminum

Other hood features and styling

When you start deviating from stock and begin to explore the dark side, you might want to consider functional aftermarket hoods that look more aggressive. You can choose from types like the cowl induction and ram air hoods that are closely associated with the V8 block movement, or maybe vented hoods for your tuner applications. This can help boost the response, cooling and aerodynamics of your favored weekend warrior.
