    just test fit a ws6 clone hood what a pos.

    I just test fit a extreme dimensions duraflex hood on my car. What a horible fit the crown of the hood is out to lunch and the gaps are all over the place. I can't put this on my car. Right when I took it out of the box it was very disappointing.It was so wavy, not that big of a deal it could have been straightened out at the body shop which was expected. I thought I should test fit it before the painter took it and I'm glad i did. Anyway now I have to pay $100 restocking fee to take it back. It was totaly not as described off the site. The holes in the scoops were supposed to have mesh and they weren't even cut out. I tried expaining all this but they still want the restocking fee. Just thought I'd warn everyone I don't recommend these hoods to anyone. I guess I will have to try and find a gm origional.If anyone wants pics of the poor fit send me your email I don't know how to post pics.
    Thanks,C

    Yea that is it. They sell a carbon fiber one but it probably won't fit any better. I'm not going to bother trying it already cost me $100.

    It looks like the way to go is with the usexotics hood ws9 or outlaw. I haven't seen any bad posts about his stuff. Only thing is he doesn't ship to Canada yet.
    So I was thinking I could try and buy one off him and have one of you guys ship it to me....sound good??

    yeah ive only heard good about us exoctics . . . and the ws9 is almost an exact ws6 replica but w/ heat extractors, much better looking than even the expensive suncoast hood.
