Now all we need is a paypal from you guys with your name and adress and what you are buying. If you buy two pieces I will take off $100 from the total.

Our paypal is [email protected]

We can start cranking them out.

$510 shipped on the hood and $495 shipped on the trunk. Subtract $100 from that if you buy 2. Turn around time is about 10-14 days.

Is the trunk open in this pic? The passenger side looks higher than the drivers side. Also, look how high the drivers side corner by the glass is.

Is this just an adjustment issue that can be corrected?

To be honest I don't think JDM hoods will be done for a while. Seeing how this group buy turned our manufacturer might not want to take on another project. We do not make these trunks in the bay area for those who want to pick them up, sorry.

You would have to install your oem latch on the trunk.

So is that a no? Some of us have been waiting on this to happen since it was first mentioned back in march. If those who are definately in for a jdm hood put down a deposit, will that help to make sure it happens?
It just blows that people with cash in hand for parts that WILL SELL have to suffer because of a bunch of cheap ass people that put their name on the waiting list KNOWING good and well that they were full of ish about actually buying....

I know that the jdm hoods will sell. Just look at how many of the hideous "invader style" hoods and cf hoods that do not fit right have been purchased and are floating around here. If people would pay $500 for the invader hood, there is something definately wrong if they would choose that over the jdm style.

I'm not involved in this thread really, but I think I remember reading somewhere that one of the main problems in the JDM hood was that no one offered one up to make a mold.

Definitely not. Seeing our dsm parts one of 8g galant owner contacted us about making trunks and hoods for them. They got 15 people of each and are paying $100 deposits to get the project started. If you can get 15 people who are willing to put $100 deposits and a jdm hood donor (he/she will get the hood back) I will start on this right away. This way our manufacturer doesn't feel like we are starting another project that he will not benefit from. Once again, Hi-Rev breaks even on the 15th order and from there we and our manufacturer makes profit. This was strictly a favor to a lot of you who pm'd and emailed us for months to get these parts made. I have emailed everyone who was interested and have not received any replies. I will post this up in the for sale section and hope for the best. Thanks for your support guys.

Several were offered, but Kamil (for understandable reasons) is only looking for one in absolutely perfect condition to make the mold. Mine is in good condition and sitting in my garage, but I told him the corners are a bit scraped up from shipping so he said no. I offered to send him pictures of the hood, but he never responded.

Basically what he's looking for doesn't exist - any 16+ year old hood that's been shipped halfway around the world isn't going to be perfect. What he's looking for is someone who's already spent money and had theirs repaired, straightened, painted and had any dents removed already, and anyone who's gone though that kind of effort with a JDM hood isn't going to want to ship it, and probably won't be interested in replacing it with a carbon one.

Sorry for not responding. Sometimes we get 300+ emails per day. If it's only scraped not dented it will definitely work. No the issue is of gettin 15 people together. As you all know I am very open to new ideas as long as there is support for it.

So are we "forced" to pay shipping regardless of where we live?
I ask because my company is based across the water from you in Belmont and I make it out often. I can have it shipped via work for basically nothing.
Is there any way around the shipping charge or are the parts made outside the US?!?
