That's pretty sweet, just not my cup o' joe (this is America, we can't say cup of tea...)...

My latest concern: How would lexan react in the event of an engine fire? Anyone have some ideas?

Exactly, I would be concerned of it becoming a propellant... hmmm, maybe weight would be better cut elsewhere...

I've installed a smoked black Lexan hood on my Jeep TJ. I made a video on the install process too here http://www.someonesbigger.com/2013/0...p-wrangler-tj/ . I love the hood, for the amount of head turns I get driving down the road it is totally worth it. I've had it through a winter with no problems as well. It's fun to watch your engine warm up and melt the snow just enough so when you stop it slides off in one big piece. I want to throw some lighting under the hood for when I'm in park.... I mean hey why not if you can see through the hood right? If only I installed window washer nozzles underneath for when it gets muddy but over all I'd say get one if you need to replace your hood anyway.
