Good deal?

Okay, on the Craigslist here there is a 5.5 inch cowl hood for my fox, it comes with the latch and hood pins, is in great condition. It is $200, but the problem is that it is 2 hour away. So do you think it is a good enough deal to justify the 4 hours I'll be driving to get it? What do you even think of the 5.5 inch cowl?

A cowl hood for 200 bucks is a great deal! But 5.5 inches I don't know if you would be able to look from the inside

I'm 6'3", seeing over it shouldn't be a prob, I'm gonna make a card board template to see though, just in case.

So I made a template of the 5.5 inch cowl and I can see over it fine, but realistically it is too big. 3.5 is the biggest I can go. Back to Craigslist!

When you aren't sure if you should buy something or not, just buy it. I regret not buying that hood and now it is gone.
