Kinda what I figured...

Personal opinion here, but I'd be surprised if they did now that they have a LT kit that works with stock fenders. Would be a substantial investment to offer a modified bumper to work with fenders needed to run the competitions' products.

Still, it would be pretty killer!

i installed the glass works unlimited front fenders and i had the opening in the fenderwell for my intake but i cut the side off the intake just inside the fenderwell on the bubble things that mounts to the fender itself and then took some of the left over fenderwell lining and bolted it up to cover the hole on the outside and no problems so far

he probly had some bad pin set ups.
theres a latching system you can use. there are also flip hing kits idk where to find them but you can get it so it opens like a corvet hood (i cant spell, your tax money at work. public schools dont work) you could use pins and there are also safty systems for dragsters. my cusin has a safty set up on his drag car. i think its chains and hooks on the under side of the hood as well as pins.

yeah that would be bad. i have a friend who had his stuff N rigged and it was loosly bolted on the hinges and the latch was bumping and the glass broke after about a month when he was driving on I80 and his hood fliped and skipped across I80
didnt hit any other cars! thank god. it was a kid in a rice burner tuner.
