Default Vented Hood Purchase

I recently purchased a hood from a vendor (that I waited three weeks to get) and well let me just say that the hood I received was very interesting. Stand by for pictures and a follow up from their customer service. Id like to have input from the community.

With all due respect, IMO it would have been better to hold-off on the starting a new thread until you had all the information, photos, vendor communications, et cetera ready to post.

Wayno, I respect your opinion and thats probably how you would handle it. Now please respect how I am handeling my situation. I am using all my strength to not loose it. I have given information in regards to my current dilema. The reason I don't want to give all the information is because the vendor hasn't responded yet, and I want to give the vendor the benefit of the doubt. Pictures I have ready for posting. I have left two messages and sent two emails at this time. As soon as they responds I will post more information about my current situation.

Wayne doesn't appreciate suspense, evidently.

no ideas on solution. doesn't seem like you can "add" to where it's missing stuff.

who made it? who sold it to you? what do they say?

I do, however, recall writing post #4 when you asked about vented hoods.
