Im just tired of EVERY hood being twice as much as any other cowl hood on the market for us Jeepers......fn re dick u lus
so in your mind ALL hoods should be the same price regardless of the way its made or the materials and craftmanship put into it...........i would disagree.
the reason some other hoods are real cheap is they are made in CHINA or some other 3rd world place where when they are done with the CF resins and such just throw them out back or down the sewer. Im not defending this hood by any means. I dont even know who made it or where. im just saying there are ways to save money.
i do know that hoods like the venom, made by CBD in southern Cali, are top shelf all the way. they are built and backed by a US based company. designed by one of our members. and brought to us in very limited production. all those contribute to the cost.
lets talk about numbers as well. no one makes stuff for us because not enough of us buy that stuff. its rather simple math. so the ones that do make stuff for use, need to recoup their investements.
and if you need proof, let me go find the POLL about the venom hood. 35 people said they would definitely buy it in a poll that was up for about a week.
well go look at his list. about 12 peeps on it..............where the other 23..........
