It looks good, but you need to adjust the passenger side, front down a bit. You should be able to screw the black stopper down about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. That will even it out perfectly.

I didn't even notice, but now that you said something it sticks out like a sore thumb. Yes adjust that stopper! It can't be good for the hood to be tweaked like that either.

My dad owned an autobody shop for 40 years. Sadly I notice flaws most never pay attention to.

They sell junk if it isn't name brand, and their customer service is in the toilet.

I have to admit, if you were not informed the part was not in stock, I would be irritated too. I would have likely cancelled the order and shopped elsewhere.

It was the CDC chin spoiler upgrade. It showed in stock on there website when I orderd it. I called about a week after I placed the order and they said it was out of stock and take about 2 weeks to get. I waited about a week and a half and called again they said it should ship any day. I called Friday and was told it would take another 2 weeks. Very irritating

That's screwed up. I used to sell aftermarket performance parts. Doing shady crap like that was a fast way to become jobless.

Don't forget Mustang Unlimited, Summit, and Jegs.

If what you are saying is accurate, they messed up, tried to cover it up, and then lied.

How hard is it to tell a customer the truth; The part was in our system as "in stock". However, upon shipment we discovered an error. The part you ordered will be delayed until we are able to have it delivered from the manufacturer or vendor?

At that point they can actually ask you if you would like to keep the order or cancel it.

Then, regardless of the decision made on the order, if I was the sales person or representative, I would ship out a handful of decals, a free hat, and possibly a t-shirt. I would have gladly given away $20 in my store product (advertisement) just to earn a customer's respect.

If they did something like that I would have all the respect in the world! If they just owned up to it instead of covering it up.
