you don't understand. They told me on the phone they had another green one laying around, as well as a regular CF one. So I said okay I'm coming down. Then when I get there, they feed me some bullshit about them not having a window on it and their installer was GONE. They are a shady-*** company running out of a little warehouse and I don't like them.

Oh also the side seals are not OEM and are a pain in the *** to get to seal right. My seats and gutted floor were soaked the first few times it rained until I ghetto fabbed enough 3M tape to wedge in there.

$1,500 for a half-assed product and being deceived. No, that's not acceptable.

I'm only sharing my experience with the company for your sake. If you order the hood and it's got defects or doesn't fit right at all, don't say I didn't warn you.

If you didn't like it, why'd you accept it and take it?

..and the seal issue has long since been resolved. Your windows need adjusting. I posted that, but you were banned from CR. The seals were perfect (even had more coverage than OEM).

I'm so tired of hearing complain about bullshit arguments from vendors and poor follow through on their side. If you have a problem, take care of it and shut up. Be a man.

If you cant follow through on what you commit to and take money for, you need to check your moral compass.

I think it's a pretty ugly hood...Actually if I had a track car i'd probably rock it. Way too busy for my taste and the idea of watter logging the engine isn't really to appealing. I like the idea of just having the two front vents though, I think it would really clean it up. Oh well, must be a CR, hard parker thing.

Whats the going price for a RHarris hood? I think Hustler's is nice enough to make boners with. That and the FM hood are just so clean.

False. I won't go into my reasoning for leaving...it went more smoothly because the hoods finally arrived. I don't drive boats or make parts. Point is, they are here, they look great and fit great.

Slideruler's situation was after I left...UPS damaged the top, not Chaser. That fiasco is thanks to package handlers that don't care.

Hood comes with rain guards...install covers for daily, take em off for track use.

Sir, i am not even talking about the hoods. I am talking about the hardtops. When you were around, we were getting bullshitted about when we would get them for.........in my case 7 months after i had paid. And when you left, we all pretty much got them lickety split.

When I spoke to your replacement, Anthony, aka Russ 2: electric boogaloo, He told me he didnt know what the hell you were doing. He didnt know who the hell I was, what my address was, or even what top I ordered. I think I even had to tell you like 3 times what I ordered. and after i cleared that up with him, it showed up at my house in a week.

Im not even talking about who is responsible for the damaged top. he took the kevlar one. he settled. done.

Frankly, Im just disgusted that you could be so incompetent with other peoples money and then get on here and be a smug little ******* to someone who had a bad experience with your previous employer.

As you weren't there, nor did you sit in my seat, you don't know what happened on my end, and what I had to go through. I'm not going to post anything publicly as I do not work there any more, I don't have to defend the business aspects. After I left, other people came in and there was a reorganization; which was badly needed.

I am now just a customer. I love the hood, and that is the point of this thread.

Fair enough. I dont know what happened. I wasnt there. Im sure it was the holocaust. Just govern yourself about how you treat people who took the bait when you cast the lure. You do that, and we will be just fine.
