I've been staring at my factory flat black painted NA meter hood and was I was wondering if/what options are out there to it?

Anyone know of any good alternatives to the NA OEM unit available?
Stuff that would fit the LHD roadster??

Thanks.

nothing that would fit a LHD car so far as I know, other than Axis Power racing's carbon version.

I've always wanted to cover mine in leather or vinyl.

Good find denny. I can't decide whether I like the double stitched seam like Murakami or the single stitched seam like Auger. Both look good. Auger don't say where they're located (no e-mail, no street address, just a phone number, probably in USA somewhere) but they're much cheaper than Murakami. The vinyl they use is superior to leather from a durability standpoint (just look at the leather dash in any late-model Ferrari or Lotus Esprit after a few years in exposure to the sun) but I would miss the lovely smell of real leather. Has anybody purchased a hood cover from Auger themselves? Impressions?

Cool thing about "ultraleather" is that they also have "ultrasuede" aka alcantara. Although not quite as cool as real rally car style flocking, a black suede meter hood would reduce reflections onto the windshield.

The Auger phone number is an Orange County phone number. Definitely a good find, I may want one myself.

I will call them to see if I can check out their showroom (if they have one) and see the units in person before I buy. I'm looking at black w/ tan stitching.

So if anyone has some questions or anything in particular for me to look at, let me know...

All you fools in LA that go to KINOD meets, I can pick one up for you guys too. Just might be another few weeks (Nov) before I can get to another meet though...

Seems like there are a few options for LHD meter moods after all!

That Auger vinyl cover looks cool. If anyone has installed one or has pics I'd be interested any opinions on it.

I have not seen the axis power one. Does anyone have a link to their site/pic of the CF
meter hood? I've tried to look at their site, and see a lot of subaru, and only a single CF rear panel piece for the NA roadster...
