New hood installation

So I got the word today that the shop needs my car Wednesday thru friday this week to paint tint and install my new hood. I went with the trufiber venom hood and excited to see of the results. The only downside is that I have to be without my mustang for 2 1/2 days which wouldn't be bad but with work we don't get enough time together already

Be sure to put up pics ASAP! I've been contemplating between that one and the cervini IV.

Re: New hood installation

keep an eye on the hood and determine if you need hood pins for it if you dont have them already. They also make hood pins that dont come through the top of the hood.

So an update to my hood installation dropped it off Wednesday morning n said they would have it done today and they told me they just tried painting it today the day I am suppose to pick it up and said that the paint is pitting n they have to take the paint off to primer it what have these guys been doing for the last two days. Is there legitimately any reason why they would wait until today to paint it and surprise didn't come out right and now it conflicts with my business trip on Monday for a month n a half bunch of idiots

I've had problems with the paint shops around here too. There must be something in the atmosphere.
