I believe juiced motorsports is a vendor, rdp store used to be but they dropped anderson composites as far as I know... I too am interested in this hood, maybe we could get a group buy going?

Can't blame him...
He would but it would be very expensive to make and the cheapskates that want one would not fork up the dough in order for him to make a fair profit...thats the holdup....just saying

I did get 1 quote from a vendor on here.

JOSHUA LEE <[email protected]>

The OE hood we can do for $1249 shipped.

The TM hood would be $1449 shipped.



pretty good pricing IMHO. i'm a little hesitant because i have yet to see this hood on something... but i really like it... I'm contemplating leaving it raw since my side skirts and splitter are raw.

I have that hood, but I never put it on the car. The frame of the hood got cracked towards the back of the hood but the skin is fine. I never did return it. Anyone want to buy it?

We have dropped selling anything from anderson, the wait times are anywhere up to 6 months and this is un acceptable to us and our customers, they promise the items to come faster than that but theres always a reason for a delay, i would possibly look at other options before spending your hard earned cash sir

i would make a call direct to them first and get a name and confirmed delivery time before you give any one any money, i refunded our last 4 orders because customers were not being told the truth and were waiting 4 months, its not good business so we removed all of their items from our online store and dropped them

I appreciate it. the car's going to be in storage until april or so anyway. but ya, that sounds terrible. I'm not sure what else is out there... everyone hates on carbon creationz for quality... and i really like the heat extractor style.
