Got this today finally, 1 month and 1 day after winning the ebay auction
Took off the hood and oe cowl and cleaned up everything in the drainage area, the little plastic parts were clogged and there were remnants of salt where the car had been up in Michigan a long time ago. The wiper arms were starting to show their age so I have a new coat of black paint drying on them now

Nice looking I think I might do the same but for the cowl.

I didn't even know that piece was made in carbon fiber. Just out of curiosity, does it feel much lighter than the OE piece?

it's fairly new, only a couple people have them. They're not much lighter since the oe is plastic. It looks good with the cf hood though :D

I had messaged the guy that has been selling the CF cowl on eBay, to see if he would make one for my 2nd gen. He never responded.

yeah communication wasn't the best, they said 5-10 days allowance for making the thing was needed, i won the auction on 7/6, about the 26th I hadnt gotten a tracking #. I messaged him and got one on 7/28, so yeah communication would be needed. "poncho" was the s/n on ebay, there was another seller with the same product a while back, it may be the same dude under a new name. If you could find someone in SoCal that he could get an oe cowl from for the mold he might would make one, one of our mexico members that I think works in socal stopped by his shop and got the ball rolling on the cowl and spark plug cover

NEVARrr!!!1!
maybe if i was keeping the hood long term I would, but I want another one w/o hood pin holes. The prior owner was clever enough to install one directly onto a radiator bracket so I want a new vis one at some point

they are the same exact thing. i took one from a friends parts car (93 egt) and put it on my (ex) g/f's zx2. fit perfectly.

mellow- are these the same parts vega's got?

yeah I think so, I'd have gotten the spark plug cover as well but I don't plan on using my 98 valve cover forever, or the 98 head for that matter;)
