I've been looking for a certain type of hood vent since the shop that made these went out of business. Here are a couple of photos I saved from several years ago. Is there anything out there like them?

Ahhh yes... my favorite too...

The JL Extractor... made by Rockcrawl in limited numbers.

I was lucky enough to buy one last year in The Mall from a Canadian gent who kindly took the additional hassle to ship it over the border.

MinnGreen has one on his car. So does Zoom88. Hard to find... but good luck!

(Aus made a hood vent inspired from his 'stage 2' scoops... that is the closest I have seen to the JL Extractor.

Contact Paul... aka ThaDriver. I believe he makes these as well and his work is second to NONE!

Thanks, I'll message him and look around. I'd also settle for an Evo V or VI style but I don't see any that I think would fit.

Yes... You beat me to that extractor in Canada...
I did get the last AusFiero extractor. I contacted him a couple years ago (when he was on here looking for parts) and askedg if he would make one more or sell the mold. He said no to both as he may make them in the future. He did go out to the mold and found he had one left in it from years ago...

If you cannot get your hands on that style hood, the vented-style hood of an later post-1999 SN95 Mustang Cobra is a similar style. I believe that's what Rockcrawl actually used to make the very first version he put together. You can find the SN95 Cobra hoods a dime a dozen - and thus often very cheap used.

You mean like this...



You can't have it , but if you're interested, Here is a thread documenting the installation of it with mega-help from John Carlo and Clynt.

There's even a video...

Wear a mask anytime you are working around glass dust, its a pain in the ass but living the last years of your life in a bed not able to pull a breath of air is no way to go.
Sorry hits kind of close to home.

I remember Fibersmith had some nice vents but I haven't heard from him in a long time.

I suffered from terrible asthma as a kid. When it got really bad, I'd spend a week or two in bed gasping for every breath. This would occur several times every year, from about age five to twelve. So, I hear ya. Thanks for the caution.

Me too, Patrick, to the point of being hospitalized once or twice. I still have trouble once in a while, so I feel your pain Jake Dragon. I know all about working with fiberglass, but thanks for the warning. It never hurts to have a reminder to prevent complacency.

And one of my grandparents. Jeeze, I'm sorry to hear that man. On a lighter note, I'm leaning toward the mad tyte JDM NSX things due to pricing at 1/3 the cost of most others.

Still open to anything Rockcrawlish, or Dietmar's side scoops.
