There was a ton of work done to the hood on this 2003 Toyota Matrix
The inside of the hood was also radically modified. Expanding foam was used to shape the inside of the hood (used to keep the weight down as much as possible), then fiberglassed over to mate up with the carbon fiber hood.
There was so much more work done to this car that is not so evident. One of the less noticeable modifications was the carbon fiber rear roof spoiler. This was originally added by the car's owner. He simply glued the spoiler on top of the original hatch (manufacturer's recommendation). It was decided that it did not flow properly, so that was changed. The spoiler was molded to the roof with epoxy and then body filler. It now looks as if it were originally part of the hatch. Even the window squirter was left functional, although hidden behind the spoiler...
