    I am the $395 guy, but that hood will likely never sell for that low a price again. And yes, $800 painted is a good deal. I spent a total of $800 for the hood, shipping, and paint. Keep in mind my hood was a $200-$300 less than most US Exotics WS9 hoods. I wouldn't sell it for less than $1000 (if I ever sold my car, but not happening any time soon).

    Has anyone used a Suncoast Creations#28003E hood yet? How do they look/fit? It's like the Superhawk hood.

    Raptor hood? They look good but theyre not as aggressive as the superhawk, more subtle.

    I would hold out for a good used OEM hood. I never found an aftermarket that was as good.

    I would have to agree with that after trying no less than 4 hoods from TruFiber. Each one had horrible fit/finish issues, and 2 of them had bad warping.

    Did you keep buying them or were they returns? My US Exotics hood fits PERFECTLY. The gaps and fitment look stock.
