    fiberglass SS hood

    has anyone ever bought a aftermarket ss hood (fiberglass) and had problems with waves in the hood. If so what can I do to correct this and do you think it will be a big deal or noticable after painting

PLEASE keep in mind though as any professional paint/bodyman will tell you, ALL aftermarket (fiberglass) body panels require pre-fitment and SOME amount of sanding/finesse before even thinking about mixing ANY paint. So be aware that u get what u pay for...
