The hood, or bonnet as some call it, in the Mini does more than in most cars. It holds the headlights, and thus is a structural member. Will there be increased vibration in the lights? Is the carbon fiber hood stiffer, and more likely to crack, or more flexible and less likely to hold the headlights steady? Is that 16 lbs. without paint? Does the hood go on unpainted? Will it look like a finished product, or like you primed a hood and forgot to paint it? If painted, does paint adhere to carbon fiber well, and polish up just like painted metal?

Seems like a lot of work for 16 lbs.
