dead on.
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.

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.

Stay Tuned.
