|Additional terms of sale for this product
When the hood arrives, and before the driver leaves, inspect the box for freight damage and remove all the packing materials to inspect the "bare" hood for freight damage. If there is any sign of freight damage, you must REFUSE the shipment and mark the waybill as "DAMAGED". Make sure you re-package the hood in the box with all the original packing materials and contact us immediately, so that we can send you another hood at no cost once the freight insurance claim is processed. If you or whoever is receiving the hood do not check the hood at the time of delivery and later find freight damage, it is too late - we can not accept any claims for damages at that point - no exceptions.
The hood must be dry fit on your car prior to any paint or body work to ensure that it does not have any manufacturing defects and fits the vehicle properly. Any hood that has been painted or has any body work done to it can not be sent back. No exceptions.
All warranty claims for defective hoods (bad workmanship) are handled directly through the manufacturer in California, and digital photos are required prior to a warranty claim submission. Once reviewed, an RMA# will be sent. If the hood is defective once inspected, a replacement will be sent out. If the hood is not defective, you will be responsible for all freight charges including return shipping to you if you want it sent back. Some cars have been involved in accidents and fenders and/or bumpers may be out of alignment. This is your responsibility to repair properly and is not a valid reason for a hood return.
Hoods are not returnable. Shipping is not refunded for any reason.
The manufacturer's warranty is for 90 days and covers only defects in the workmanship and materials of the hood itself. It does not cover paint, installation error, road debris, damage, etc.
All hoods are test fit to work with factory air intakes and accessories. We can not guarantee fitment with aftermarket parts installed.
Hoods will require some surface preparation prior to painting. This may include heat curing the hood, filling pin holes and chips, block sanding, and primer surfacing to ensure the hood looks as good as possible. No aftermarket fiberglass hood will ever be as perfect as an OEM hood as they are hand laid. There will always be minor flaws. Ensure you allow for this when estimating costs with your body shop to install and paint your hood. Only use a body shop FAMILIAR with fiberglass products or you may end up paying excessive body shop charges and/or poor workmanship.
Hoods are for off road use only and may not meet OEM safety requirements.
Hood pins are not required for installation but are recommended for maximum safety.
The buyer assumes all risk associated with the purchase and installation of this hood.
If you are having the hood shipped to a third party (such as a body shop), you agree to communicate all of the information in this agreement to the third party and take full responsibility if any of the items above are not followed.
In general, hoods are supplied with mesh grilles laid into the fiberglass over the air intake openings.
