Default After market hood?

Is there a company that makes any aftermarket steel, or fiberglass hoods for the 2010 wrx sedan?

He asked because even carbon fiber ones are heavier than the stock aluminum.

P.S.
Get your panties out of a bunch, he asked a legitement question

reason i ask guys is cause i'm not a big fan of carbon fiber (because of durability and maintence), and i want a hood that could bring the original sti scoop to my wrx (short and high).

I've entered a Midwest thread!

I highly recommend against fiberglass because of the safety issues, but it's a lot lighter.

The only difference between fiberglass and carbon fiber is carbon fiber hoods just have fiberglass with a thin layer of carbon fiber at the top.

I'd like vents for the hood on my 2009 sedan. I like the look of the stock hood, but I don't want to go cutting into it.

Wouldn't the GR hoods be identical to the GE/GH hoods? I'm hoping I can find pretty much just an OEM hood (As in aluminum, and painted) with vents.

Yes, or at least the 2008+ ones are.
