Is it an auto? Maybe the linkage is loose? Can you get it into gear at all?

Cervinis Has the best fitted hoods in my opinion. A little pricey, but u pretty much pay for what you get... Nice. I wish i could afford to buy and paint a new hood.... Meh

Yes they do.


I have a Cervinis hood and an H.O. Fibertrends hatch on my car.
They are both well made and I wouldn't be afraid to buy again from either company.

I don't know, but looking through their client showcase I saw several fitment problems and what looked like wavy surfaces.
Just remember, you get what you pay for.
I'd research some more looking for reviews and comparisons before I'd buy one.

^ i second this. I know we are straying off topic here, but the only consistant good fitted hoods come from cervinis and american muscle... Which is cervinis for the most part. I'm sure there are some if you search hard enough but the selection is very limited.

I just hate it wen people get jipped. Don't take the chance.
