    Has anyone ever bought any fiberglass from them, if so how did you like them? Was there a lot of prep work or did they come pretty straight? I am considering buying the cowl hood they have. Thanks

    I have one and the quality sucks. First of all when I got it, it had small hairline cracks. After installation, I noticed it didn't fit like the stock hood. It doesn't match the top of the fenders or the grill. There's a huge gap where it meets the cowl. My body shop had to spend more time prepping it which meant more $$$ for me. It would of been cheaper buying a Harwood. I have to admit it's much lighter than the stock hood though and I think the cowl helps a little with performance and keeping the engine cooler. What ever brand you get, stay with a framed hood so you can use the factory springs and latches.
