Will a Hood fit inside our car? Mazda 3 Sedan

I'm going to pick up a CF hood on Monday.. my problem is, I don't have a truck or a roof rack.
Anyone have experience with this? lol.. Like has anyone fit one inside our car? It seems a little impossible, maybe with the front seat out it will?

I could lay a towel down on my roof and strap it down but its over an hour drive and I'm a little nervous over that.


Any tips/ideas? Thanks..

it wont fit in the sedan. you can fit one in a hatch, but only one, and it is not a very good fit. the hood is prone to being bent or having the edges nicked.

You never know what some people pull off. I thought I would ask before I start bugging people for their truck

Re: Will a Hood fit inside our car? Mazda 3 Sedan

I thought you didn't have the 3 anymore? Best bet would be to use a blanket on the roof and strap it down. Or you could open your existing hood, place the other hood(s) under that hood and tie it closed. That'll appeal to those who like to gawk at big bonnets. Hope it goes well!

In the Lounge, if you ask questions you will get ripped a new one, multiple times, by many many people. I am quite surprised to see you have yet to have that happen. Halo0 was rather nice with just the emoticon haha

heheh i know, I get into it alot with people on here >.< i tend to be ignorant on forums =/
but yeah he was rather polite<3


I actually was planning to get rid of the 3.. but from being unemployed and not having the best time finding a steady job at the moment I cant peruse my other car build
But yeah.. I was actually going to give my car to my mom because she drives a death wagon kia.. I was going to get a 91 240sx and do a sr20det swap with a huge turbo lol but plans fell through.
In the future when things pick up for me again Ill end up going down that path, in the mean time, after helping my friend do stuff to his car, I had one of the moments where I reconnected with my car



I like that idea you have though,, that might just work. Strapping them down under my hood, If my uncle cant give me a ride with his truck im going to rent one from home depot.



Thanks for the advice/input
