My hood fitment hasn't been very good from the 1st day out of the box. I have tweaked the bumper, the stop, you name it, but I cant get the hood to fit like other CF hoods do, in the front. Just looking at my buddy's stock silver hood (pictured) and mine, you see a huge difference. When I compare the leading edge to Bin4ry's hood (Red), there is a huge difference. Also what you cant see in the pics is right directly above where the hood latch would be, and then towards the drivers side aprox 3", there are two ping pong ball size yellow blotches.

Now, personally I think the design of the hood with the huge front intake scoop, and the two smaller scoops on the top make the hood look really
mean. But the fit on mine sucks hard! Now with the yellow blotches I am really hoping that something can be done about it... like how bout I send this one back and get one that fits? for one that doesn't have the yellow blotches on it.

I did a thread on the fitment from day one, and some guys told me how to do some tweaks to make it fit better... but ask Bin4ry about it.. he has seen how it is after all the tweaking. I cant live with it any longer. I really would like to pay the shipping back to IP2 and even pay for the re-ship of a new FREE hood if it will fit the leading edge correctly.

mine fits the exact same way, me and my buddy r gonna try to notch out the front bumper right about where the hood latch goes, and push the bumper in a bit only in the center. this should even out the sides as well. when i try it i will post, but it might not be till the weekend. as far as everything else, im in love with how it makes my car look so im happy with it. but i know what u mean about having to live with it. anyhow u can hardly see it from the front, only while ur right above it, u know what i mean. anyway good luck bro.

I tried notching the front, it helps only slightly... And I'm really embarassed by how it's got the yellow blotches on it. And the whole hood seems to be turning yellow already after only 3 months...

Maybe I got a hood that had too much shrinkage in the molding process?? So it wont fit as good as some of the others do?


Damn.. I love the "look" design of the hood, but come on, it HAS to fit better than this... The bumper should not have to be cut and twisted to make the hood fit.. the hood should fit within the paramaters of the stock hood, or the hood should be sold with a disclaimer.

Anyone want to buy the hood?? I dont think the manufacturer wants to do anything about it.

By the pictures,it looks fine to me. yellow blotches? how would yellow appear on the hood? It sucks that they did not respond. Even if they dont give u an exchange on it.
good luck man.

well lets see maybe ray didnt respond because this is the 1st post about this he sees from this guy. unfortunatley that is the way our tooling was made. the hood was molded out of a car with the wings west kit. the hood really does not look all bad at all. No we are not going to replace the hoods because thats the way it fits. there has been numerous posts made allready about this in the past by myself addressing the issue. by the way can you get this post moved t the visual mods section. as im not renewing my forum vendor advertisement and ekool will make this section go bye bye soon

are you guys going to stop making products. I was in the market but the way i see it if the hood doesnt fit then remake a new mold. You would sell alot more product that way. But if you not even going to be vendor then i guess it doesnt much matter

then they shouldnt make the product in the first place. Its be documented that the hood doesnt fit from day one. The same problem they had with their intake it seems they take short cuts. You would actually make money if it fit nice everyone would get one. 4shizzle i am sure you wouldnt sell a product that didnt fit or work. I would spen another 100 dollars on a hood that fit right why spend 550 if it doenst even fit? I am waiting for 4shizzel and other good carbon people to build a replacement hood i am sure they willl do a great job

I love my IPP hoods.... One of the nice things about IPP is that they don't force people to buy their hoods, they let people make that decision on their own.

I admit to coveting the 3 pound Carbon by Design hood and decklids, but people seem to like the IPP hood on my car.

maybe i should tell you that about 400 hoods were already sold and i estimate that more would be sold in the nezt few weeks. so far had a total of about 3 complaints which you cant please everyone :clap: :clap:

i dont own your hood but if the hood you make is on your car in the sig,pic. why your hood fits better did you make a one off piece for yourself to but your name out there..
