Worst piece of crap I ever wasted money on. After 4 or 5 days of working on it, and smoothing it out, filling all the holes, etc, it was presentable ... barley. I'd shop around ... you get what you pay for.

As Johnpro says...you get what you pay for. UPP is one of the cheapest manufacturers out there, but the product reflects it. Their hoods work fine as relatively lightweight engine covers but they are full of imperfections. They would be appropriate for a race car. While I was at the shop I checked out a couple other hoods that were waiting for pickup and they looked pretty good. Mine is okay, but they ground one side straight and one side crooked. But it was cheap, and I needed a hood quick, so I took it.

If you decide to order from them, do it with a credit card...that way you can do a chargeback if they give you the run around. Although you will have a significant amount tied up in shipping that would be un-refundable.

I've seen johnpro's hood upclose and I am not impressed with it all. For the money that you have to pay for glass, it should be better cured. I'd definately pay a few more bucks and get a good piece of fiberglass, you won't regret it.
