Making a hood: polyester resin vs vinyl ester resin

From the reading I've done Vinyl Ester resin would handle heat better and not expand/contract as much as polyester resin but it does cost a little more.

Since I'm planning on making a complete hood is there a reason not to use Vinyl Ester for the hood besides the extra cost?

My hood will be painted black on top and underneath so it will absorb a lot of summer heat and so want to prevent/minimize any types of cracking or ?? due to heat if possible.

I'll probably use a standard resin for the actual mold.
