    Molding and Fiberglassing

    I've seen this on both franky Zapata's and Nicolas Rius crafts. there hoods are shaped exactly like the ones that come on the stock bikes but there are no latches. Its all one piece. What process do you have to go threw to do this when it comes to molding and fiberglassing? Do you mold the shape around the stock hood? I also saw it on the Lemione RXT.
    Excuse the guy on the back of Franky's bike. He seems to be a little bit tooooooo excited to be in franky's presents.

    I think rotax racing sells one for 1600 USD. I believe Dan has one on his JD #1 Turbo Ski..
