Please create a proper for sale ad in the "parts for Sale section" of the board.

Great job guys. I am very happy to see you made them with out requiring deposits up front.

Quoting VRausch4:

The JDM hood has the vent area set into the sheet metal. There are depressions that allow the vents to sit essentially flush with the hood line, VS on top when installing teh vents into a factory style hood.




The factory JDM hood also has the correct underhood skeleton to accomodate the vents. Cutting into USDM hood for vents may look good from above, but not as clean from underneath. If a well fitting carbon JDM hood was offered, I would finally jump on the CF bandwagon, possibly for a trunk also.




if you guys build a jdm hood (CF or FG) that way, I'll order one today.




I agree....you guys seriously complaining about a slight dimple where the key hole would go? Leave it as is...it'll still look great

We can definitely, do colored carbon fiber, but of course that costs $100-$180 more depending on the color. Should I post this in the for sale section? I don't know how vendors post new products for sale here.

It took us so long because I tried over and over to convince our manufacturer to make these parts. He wants to make 150 of each and I promised that we will sell 15 of each even if we have to take a small loss.

From my understanding you guys are on hold until someone tries these parts. We will try to contact the donor of the parts and see if he wants to test fit these parts.

^^^^ i would have an independent third party that has no ties to your shop test fit. the mold came from a car that got it to work on their car but if you put it against another car it should be the same fit. thats pretty much what happened last time when they got the mold and people were complaining.

I can come by, pick up a trunk and hood and test fit them. My car does not run but the hood is off for construction and I could have the parts back the same day if you want.

Tomorrow we are test fitting on a gvr4 and hopefully we can post pictures. Can you guys confirm who is in for sure and for what part?

Thank you

Do you know how long you will be selling them for?

I plan on painting my car this winter if all goes well during/after break in on my new motor...If I did buy them, I would probably get both parts..but that wouldnt be for several months.

I will take a trunk next week. (so glad you went with the idea of pluging the key and spoiler holes ) I will definately take a JDM hood as soon as they are done. I just hope that you will go with the EXACT same design as the JDM stock with the separate vents that bolt in and not just molded; that is what will make on break the deal for me. Also, if you could shave the holes for the washer sprayers like you did for the key on the trunk, that would be a definate plus. Some good pics of both installed on a gvr4 would really help sell your products though. You had plenty of pics of all your sexy cf parts for dsm's on the tuners thread, I'm sure that really helped to spread the message that you guys are legit.

The parts will be made strictly on order. We will continue making them. However, if we dont get at least 15 out of each our manufacturer might have a problem completing another project. (JDM hood).

As soon as we get pictures in I will post them up.

Depending on pix, I'll buy a hood in two weeks and a trunk soon after. Can send deposit if necessary.

Well damn, that sux for me and the others who opted for the jdm hood from the get go. You guys that were all about these hoods when this was first posted need to step up. I will stick by what I said and buy one of each, no question about it. If we have to, Im sure some of us(myself included) would be willing to put down a deposit to get the ball rolling on the JDM hoods.
