VIS OEM Carbon Fiber 5th gen hood

So my VIS OEM Carbon Fiber 5th gen hood arrived yesterday. It's so sexy! I don't know about everyone else but I think carbon fiber is âucking hawt. I still have to paint it 2-tone before I throw it on the lude. I picked it up for $450, which included shipping, from Ill Street car parts. It was the best deal I could find, shipping always sucks for that kind of ****. I don't look forward to paying for shipping for my lip kit.

Chuck Cintron is on a distinguished road
Is cracking in a CF hood like that due to lack of pins, or something else? I'm asking because we just put the same hood on my son's car and would like to avoid any stress/cracking issues. Is there any way to help avoid it, or is it just a risk you take with this type of hood?

Thanks,
Chuck

I really honestly dont think it was the hood itself. I lent a car to what i thought was a friend when I put his suspension on at school, and he borrowed my car that day and thats how I got it back the next day.

Live and learn but if you take care of it, it should hold up nicely.

Well I figured since I was doing him a $300 favor for free he would treat my car with some respect, but we all learn from our mistakes.

44lbs is stock, I think the CF hood is 14-20lbs. I'll weigh them both when I bolt it on. And yes you can paint it.

apt_lude will become famous soon enoughapt_lude will become famous soon enough
I've heard Seibon is head and shoulders above VIS when it comes to CF

I read that they made a deal not to step on each others toes by each taking a different market

(VIS takes the lower cost market while Seibon takes the higher end stuff)

Are those cracks in the poly or cracks in the CF?

Okay, you win. Yours looked worse than mine.
Blake's looks like someone threw some charcoal and BBQ'ed his, still not as bad as yours though.
