Shade-010 The first hoods in the pipe are for the MKIII. so once they are done you can see how the product should turn out.

A7xschecter6661 Get some photoshopped drawings.

I wish we could get more aftermarket support for our cars... They are becoming extremely popular

And trust me, no vents are going on my car, ever.
RS hood vents are FUNCTIONAL and not crappy plastic. they are fiberglass, and serve a purpose, the hoods are going to be complete F/G or possibly C/F fully funcional. not CHEAP PLASTIC STICK ON CRAP.

What you should do instead is study the design of the factory hood and make something that is a one-off that people will actually want without question so you can sell them en-masse.
The US Mk II Focus takes a lot of influence from the old EU Escort RS and Sierra RS. Take a look at their respective designs and come up with something inspired instead of a hack job ripped off from the wrong car.

Just sayin.

true, I know the US mkII wasn't as popular as the 1st or. 3rd gens, but nice to chk

that's not an RS hood, that's just looking like a dork and sticking non-functional crap on. Your car, but hey its your car, your choice
