I’ve heard that some of them can be wavy, has anyone had this problem? Is there more than one manufacturer for this hood? Also, anyone know which venders carry the better hoods?

Most are wavy. you have to work them.

spot fill low spots and sand then..

Build up primer and block sand (should take A few coats and lots of sand paper and elbow grease)

Purchased mine in 1988. It came in a burgundy gel coat, which looked great.

Has held up fine for 15 years.

I had to work mine a LOT. I spent 8 hrs on the engine side and another 4 hours on a low spot on the top . Then the body man spent 8-16 hrs blocking and filling the top . But it looks great. I'm very happy with mine. My understanding from all the post and people I've talked with about fibrglas hoods is, in a nutshell "they take lots of work to make them look right, no matter who made it."
Be prepared to make the investment in time and elbow grease if you want it right.
The end result will only be as good as your input. (as in all things in life) ::

For the price they get for them you would think that they would be pretty good to start off with.
