Hmm i didn't think it would have fit so i paid for shipping.

hah, when the delivery guy came, he was all about to lift it.
IT was a Huge 8 foot wide box. So i asked if he wanted any help carrying it from the truck to my driveway.


and he was like "oh Naw, I got it"

then I opened it up and noticed it was so light. I was holding it by the hood latch with 2 fingers doing "Hood-Curls" Hahaha.

sorry, i just thought i should mention that.

Be careful when removing that stock hood though, have a friend help you cause it's 2-3 times the weight of a cf hood and you wouldn't wanna scratch your fenders.

i managed to do it with no one's help

i just layed down towels on top of the cowling, and over the fenders for safety.

when you prop open the hood to unbolt the hood. I suggest Using a big ol 5 gallon Bucket. or a 3 foot 2x4 to prop open your hood. it's just enough room to squeeze a small hand ratchet underneath safely.


or nevermind, call your friend.

Im really close to saying SCREW IT last night after work i drove to springfeild mo about a hour and a half away to pick up my hood and when i take it out of the box it looks like $hit the edges where not rolled the top coat was uneven at best and it had a crack in the back of it and its not like it was cheap it had a invoice on it to be paid $400.00.Well needless to say i refused it and sent it back on the truck so im looking again.
