Duraflex Hoods?

I'm considering a Duraflex Dreamer hood for my 05 GT. I love the twin-scoops, and think it'll add a nice mod without being over-the-top.

My question is whether anyone has experience with Duraflex hoods. Good, bad, crappy quality?

Thanks!!

I have heard bad things about their product as far as quality and fitment. I was told by a body guy it would cost the same amount as it did for the hood to prep it for paint with blocks and what not.
If your in the market for a hood Cervinis is the best out there in my opinion.

It is a great looking hood, especially with the aluminum grilles in the scoops. For the money, I'd question the quality.

Thanks for the heads up. Cervinis has one that's close, and they'll paint it. $950. I'll need to think carefully if it's worth the money for me, but I know it'll be a better option than the one I found on eBay. I just love that understated look.

Again, thanks for the info. I'd hate like hell to go cheap, and end up with a hood I can't use.

If you were closer I would sell you this hood but shipping it would kill the deal it's just sitting in my garage.Click image for larger version

Duraflex is a terrible product. I know because I stupidly bought an Eleanor hood before doing research. Its got so many waves in it, I had to custom make brackets for the hood to bolt up and there is a spot on the front edge that dont match the rest of the hood. Dont even get me started on their body kits that supposedly are unbreakable!

That's the kind of info I was hoping for! Thank you! I'll be going with Cervini's, if I do it, at all.
