not to disprove what you are saying but my vis hood weighs only 16.5 pounds, i weighed it before i put it on, i have the evo hood and there is a big hole in it that might be the difference because i expect you are talking abou oem style hoods?

all my numbers were based on other posts that i felt had merit. and yes, the evo hood might weigh less because of the hole. i've added your 16.5 up.

Whats the difference between a fiberglass hood and fiberglass hood skin? I'm guessing it doesn't have the underskeleton? Is the 7lbs one listed for the skin or the whole hood?

http://www.imagineengineering.com/fiberglass.htm

Edit: Answered my own question. Skin is without the skeleton. Still wondering if the 7 lbs is skin only.

stock hood is 31 lbs. also, the MB does not weigh 7 lbs. it is 15. they use a heavy *** resin. maybe their skin might be that, but i doubt it.

it is nothing special. basically a simple flat hood with 3 ribs under near it. needs more then 2 hood pins to stop the flapping at speed though. all in all, it was heavier and not as good of quality as MB promised.
