Definitely post pics when you get it back from being painted. Since your horse is the same color it will give me a good idea how it will look on mine. Is it the one from AM?
I will no its from a store on ebay. The ram air is built in on this one. Its a good company you just have to inspect the hood when its delivered. If any problems dont accept it. All the bad reviews they have was people not checking it before hand. Mine came in flawless condition.

Is that the Shelby hood?
Its a trufiber gts v4 pretty much a gt500 replica.

That's the same hood I am looking to get. From the pic it looks like it has holes for hood pins? Is that right?
Yes its been pre drilled for the hood pins that I have.

Well I dropped it off at the painters and found out it had waves in it. He told told me thats a common thing in fiberglass or aftermarket hoods. Im still happu though he was going to do it for 250 now it just 500.00 still not bad. Thats what I was expecting to pay anyway.

It's fiberglass. Its not going to be 100% smooth. It's going to have some waves in it and that's why it has to be sanded down until its smooth and then painted. Mine came straight from trufiber and has some waves in it as well.

Yeah I didnt know this is my first time ever buying a hood. So this is all new to me. Im not dissapointed though. It still looks great and im sure they will work their magic in making it look great. I would still buy the hood if I was to do it all ovet again.

It's not uncommon to have to do some body work on fiberglass. If there is a warp, there could be one in their mold. There's a little prep work and it'll look great. They will probably use a high build primer and do a little filling if necessary.

Even when he was showing me it didnt look too bad. He even said hes seen worse. Im not complaing though for the price I cant. Also the dealership is doing it but I know people up there thats why its cheap.

Looks great. I think I want that one too. How much was it and does it only come pre-drilled for hood pins?
