    The hood cost a lil over 600 after shipping. And it was professionally fitted, adjusted and painted for around another 500. It's made out of fiber glass and is significantly lighter too.

    The hood was purchased off of ebay. I don't know from what company or seller off the top of my head. It was installed by a local shop in CT. I'll check my reciepts if you want me to let you know.

    I was kinda of worried about buying a hood off ebay. Someone told me that ebay hoods were not that good. Glad to see someone who was successful with an ebay hood.

    There actually is a little problem with the fitment of this hood. It opens and closes fine and looks like it is perfectly fitted to the rest of the car... but when i try to open the headlights, they dont open all the way! The edge of the headlight gets pushed against the hood so I have to open the hood everytime i turn on the lights! This really sucks, i'm bringing it back to the shop I had install it to have them adjust the hood or headlights.
