You can't use a clear hood on a Volvo... the inside will be covered in oil, so you wouldn't be able to see anything anyway...

Clear hood would = one badass engine compartment, hopefully

Would need to make sure the rubber gasket on the front edge is there. When I had my carbon hood there was no provision for it so all the rain mist off the freeway always kept the underside and cowl dirty

Dunno how "cool" it is, but I've seen a car where someone took a photo of the engine compartment sans hood and had it printed on vinyl as a decal.

Looked cool to me at least.

I don't think I have ever seen a plexi hood on a Volvo, but this is see-through enough for me. I believe it is Sundin Racing's old 242. Picture is probably 8-10 years old.
