Carbon Fiber RKSports hood on Black R/T



got this done today, still have to align the hood better.

not sure if they did a bad finish in front of the hood scoop, looks like brush applied black gel coat finish. awaiting reply from doubled about the finish by the hood scoop area. Some minor blemishes here and there on the hood as well, has me thinking this might be a factory second.

That would be a laminated hood. They laid the cf on top of a fg hood and clearcoated it or gel coated.

Thanks for pointing the mistake…it is carbon fiber, not fiberglass. We’ve corrected it on our site.
The underside (it is a 2 piece bonded part) is fiberglass. It is finished in a black gel coat so that no paint is required. The hood ships ready to install!


I also see on the underside of it where the ram directs the air over the stock intake area, that the top is indeed fully carbon fiber.


This was a quote from the director of marketing at rksports
Just trying to figure out the bad finish on parts of the hood. Fitment is great, just need to get this thing aligned when i get time tomorrow. Need different spray nozzles as the stock ones were designed to lock into the thin metal hoods.

Just waiting for my ripp supercharger.. anyday now, if ripp ever reads this area.

will get some tomorrow. The bottom is definitely fiberglass, but they somehow glued the top and bottom together and finished it as 1. The area where the air is directed into the stock air location is where i can see raw carbon fiber.
