the vents are fine, the edge of the hood is hella off and not crisp. the mold needs to be 10000000% flawless.. i wanna see the carbon weave on the carbon hood and the edges cleaned up. car industry is harsh, im not being rude, i genuinely want this hood in carbon but if you cant pull it off, word gets around fast then no one is gonna buy anything from you. i seen people make carbon hoods and molds at their house within a month tops and it looks flawless.. i would think a company could do the same in less time more efficiently.. if i paid money and that hood showed up at my house id be furious. bring up the quality and im sure people wouldnt mind an extra 100-150 bucks for a flawless item..
this isn't Honda forums. we actually like our cars to look good and not riced out.
sure, the price is tempting, but with all the extra work that goes into just getting it to fit and it still not fitting perfectly, its not worth the price anymore.
working with molds and molding plastic parts (although we do intake manifolds and air cleaners mostly) if there is any flaw whatsoever, the molded part only accentuates the flaw.

To be fair Seibon's product is more then double the cost of Extreme Dimensions, but this is exactly why Extreme Dimensions needs to step their game up. In the end a body shop will have to fix this up for a few hundred most likely, and then you wind up losing as you could have just bought an authentic Seibon carbon fiber hood.
I understand that if you're going to have the worst fitment you're going to have the cheapest product, but you should refocus on quality and fitment, then come in at a higher price point to make more money.
I wanted this hood when they first announced it, but I have to pass. Looks like someone made it in their garage, and smoothed sanded down the corners too much. It actually makes me want to grab a hood from the junk yard and see what I can do to it.
I agree...I'll have to pass as well unless its fixed and quality is structured into the build of the hood. I was totally ready to buy
No updates on the hood CL. I have been getting the car prepped for this weekends track event. I should have pictures from the event sometime next week.
Thank you ED for contacting me regarding our concerns (great customer service). I honestly didnt expect a response since the hood was not professionally installed. I look forward to working together to resolve the concerns.
