I am pretty sure the brand is R1 Racing Sports distributed by Hiper Industries. Thats the brand of my seats and I am pretty happy with those, holding up quite well.

Grey has a spectacular aura aboutGrey has a spectacular aura about
That's kinda funny! It says, "Don't pay a retail price of over $500 when you can get it here and save $$$" when the initial price is $375 and the S&H is $115. That's makes it $490! Their statement would be true if nobody else bids on this item. All you need is $11 more and that statement is false. It's kinda funny how they can make this sort of a statement and get away with it. Just barely though.

it looks ok, but it does say all sales are final. you should see if you can still return it if you have any problems... the feedback looks a bit weird too, they haven't had any since april... maybe they don't sell much... don't get me wrong, i use ebay and have always been happy, but the ALL SALES ARE FINAL and they haven't had any feedback in a month and a half? i don't know, your call. looks like a nice hood tho!

I noticed on their other items for bid, they use the same picture as the one here. All the hoods are not the same. I would prefer a picture of the ACTUAL hood I'm going to buy. Tried to call them, but only got answer machine. I would think you would want some sort of screen on those induction holes to keep crap out of the bay? What are other CF hood prices? I don't know about this one. Sure looks good though.

It looks good but you should probably find out who makes it and whethter it has a good skeleton (underside pics would be nice).

looks great but they say on there that you can get it for $400 and save money from buying it elsewhere for $500 but after shipping of $115, is it worth the extra $$? I hate shipping!!! makees everything so much more expensiver, pardon my poor english, only been in this country 24 years

Looks nice, but would it let alot of water under your hood? Depending on the palcement of your aftermarket intake, you might want to take that into consideration.

400.00 is really cheap and the 110 for shipping is normal. There saying that most hoods cost 500.00 or more. and there hood is only 400.00. I paid 650.00 for my hood and 75 to ship it. its only a 3 ply hood and weighs 5.5 lbs. if that hood is as light as mine its a steal.
