Yup. I have the V2's too. Haven't put them on the car, though.

I'll try and weigh the hoods when I swap them.

Hood is awesome man, and I've also got the Hankook V2's. They stick nicely and burn like crazy lol, a little too easy sometimes.

Looking forward to putting the tires on but I'm trying to get all the possible life out of these tires before throwing them away. lol

Here's just a "teaser" picture. If you really squint, you can start to see how the cars profile is going to look when finished.



And because I obviously don't have enough work to do already, I have adopted another car into my fold, and yes, it's a Fofo. It's an automatic 2001 Focus SE sedan, sadly do to NY salt, it's rusting away. Hopefully I can combat the rust like I am on my Svt but it's going to take some time.

The basic back story on this car is I originally bought it in 2008 as my first car and drove it through my college years. After college, my dad was in need of a work car and I wanted something more exciting so he got the SE and I got the Svt in 2010. This year, my dad changed jobs and now has a company truck so the car is no longer needed on a daily basis so it is taking a new position as the work horse, backup car for my family including me. I'll probably start using this car more in the winter than the Svt especially when the rear fenders are getting cut up. It will be nice not having to be working on the Svt and not have to keep it as a DD at the same time.

Here's a relatively poor picture of it after a good cleaning:

FF.com, say a formal hello to Rusty. Rusty, welcome to FF. lol

Here are some much better pictures of the SE. She's in rough shape bodily but very sound mechanically. It's going to take some work but I'm hoping to repair most of the rust at least visually. The car's is stock except for the mud flaps and tinted side markers that I did the night before.







First tasks where tinted side markers and foglight mod.



After an hour of work last night, Rusty has a new face. Tinted the grill lightly and added my old SVT headlights. Today, I hope to repaint the SVT's old hood black and paint the mirrors.

That car has a lot of rust. The way it is, it's great for a DD.
