I never really liked CF hoods to begin with, but I bought the hood from Contriband to use at shows. After swapping hoods 2 times, I realize what a pain in the ass it is to swap them with the tein hood lifts that I have. Unlike Contriband, I will be up front about the hood.

He had stickers in the upper left corner (passenger side near the window) which I removed. Their imprint is still there. The CF of the hood is yellowing. Basically, it boils down to the fact that it needs a new clear coat applied. I have gotten 3 different estimates to re-clear the hood and they were $200, $235, and $250. I also have a website that has step-by-step directions to do it yourself for less than $30.

On to the good things: The fittment on the hood is very good if not perfect. Structurally, it is also very sound. Finally, for $300-350 you will have a hood with brand new clearcoat that won't crack like VIS and fits perfectly.

The reason that I am selling it for $25 more than I paid is that I spent almost 3 hours removing the stickers and getting rid of the glue residue and trying to recoup at least a little of the gas money from San Diego to LA.

This is local pickup only unless you want to pay for shipping.

Doesn't really matter because you are going to want to have it re-cleared.

They are basically where the hood meets the windshield at the line where the 2nd level of the hood is. Each one is about 4 inches long and 1 inch high. (about 6 stickers were there)
