Aftermarket Hood recommendations

Due to the craptastic hood corrosion situation with the aluminum hood on my 2011 GT, I'm considering an aftermarket fiberglass hood. It appears I have a few options. Not looking to get too wild with it. Want to stay as close to OEM as possible. Does anyone have any recommendations of brand, model etc that has the best fitment? I've heard that there can be fitment issues with aftermarket hoods.

That's the hood in considering. Looks like it's the closest thing to the OEM design? How was the fit? Any complaints?

I have the Cervini's "heat extractor" hood and it does exactly what the name implies. It also loosely resembles a vented 1968 Mustang GT hood.

Probably a stupid question, but when you have openings like this on the hood, do you worry about water getting under the hood or is this a non-issue?

I generally don't drive mine in the rain anyway so I suppose it wouldn't be a huge issue the few times I might get caught in it. But washing it might be an issue.

My 13' came with a cervini type 4 (?). I asked the salesman about water and he raised a good point (he owned a shelby). He said when you're driving the motor is so hot the water instantly steams off. I washed mine yesterday, Go from back to front, You'll be fine.

You could always buy the raim air kit too. Now thats what I worry about with rain and water.

And for the love of GOD go with the tiger racing hood.. thats just a work of art.
