    Sell the carbon fiber hood and buy an aluminum STi hood. It's lighter and easier to paint, and cheaper. Once the carbon hood is painted, it can never be returned to carbon.

    i think i read in another thread the OP has an 08+ wrx. i'm almost positive the STi hood will not fit because of the fender/body differences.

    someone correct me if i'm wrong?
