Between the wait for the hood, flares, and cf hardtop I'm gonna have a damn heart attack! My days seem like they have been getting longer, even though they are technically getting shorter...ain't that a bitch

Rharris, did you ever put this sucker on a car?? If so, did you take an pics? If I can't have these things in my hands, pictures tend to ease the pain

Mold is coming along well for the flares and integrated lids. Deer stands are being rushed and they are paying for it lol

I'd be in for a normal hood once these get into production depending on shipping costs.

Getting it shipped to a residence will cost about $75 to $100 more than a business. They hate having to frieght stuff to peoples houses. Freight is actually cheaper than ups on stuff like this because ups charges outragious fees if it is this size.
