Cowl hood... Glass or steel?

Have a guy at work selling one for $150. Looks like it's in good shape. Thinking about putting it on my 87. I think I wish it was a bigger cowl... Is a 2"... But looks better than a stock hood at least. Would I be better off just saving the money towards a Cirvinis?

cowl hoods are played out. my buddy just bought the steel 2" cowl hood from lrs. it looks decent but it has no more clearance than a stock hood. the braces underneath are in stock location.

You state your opinion as if it were fact.

I have no concerns of clearance issues. Simply looking for the cosmetic aspect.

I'm on my 3rd glass hood, I like them my dad hates them, he wants me to run. Steel hood and we have a carbon fiber hood on our race car but I've been happy with them all. I've also had hoods fly up and detroy the cowl panel I can't emagine what the Damage would have been with a steel hood.

H.O. Fibertrends has a 1.5" that I will be putting on mine. Lowest height I can find and just a tad extra clearance that I need, otherwise I would use a stock hood.

The 5" cowl I have now is not cool.

Ive had both and love m steel hood. As someone stated above it does have the same braes as stock but Its for shipping purposes and I removed with out a problem. Its nice to be able to shut and latch the hod with out worry of fiberglass cracking and the hood flying up.
