he knows there is interest in his hood by the posts and pms but its quite a leap from making one to making many, making it profitable, and most impolrtant making sure every buyer is 100% satisfied.
down boy, down!

Most of that has to do with the price. Had this been done by SunCoast Creations or American Sports Car Design, and the price was half what it is with CBD, there would be alot more people signed up, myself included.

Oh and before anybody brings up quality, I've had hoods from both of those companies, and have never had a problem.

Re: Should Odvious start a side business for Hoods?

its a 47,000 dollar Jeep Mike. and we are talking making 100 hoods. not a thousand.

IMO, the price isnt that high and you know it will blow away any other for quality.

i prefer mine painted and can save with the FG

i also own a cf hood curerently. so i also can discuss quality.


ill make you a good deal on a medic hood.....it'll save you weight, add cooling.

I Agree completely!! I have never had hoods by either of those company's so I can't comment on them.
As far as my decision to go with CBD. I want a quality part and CBD will stand behind every one 100%. To me that's extremely important a manufacturer that will stand behind it 100% no questions asked.
The price is what it is not only are you getting a part that you will not have to worry about because you know it's backed by a great company and your getting a top quality part. To produce a part over and over flawlessly is near impossible. They are set up to do just that CBD that is. I feel a lot more comfortable knowing their will be no excuses when I pick up the phone and tell them one of my customers has an issue with a hood (Shipping damage etc.) I am not going to have to have a huge fight to get my customer a new hood. To me a business that is small trying to grow starts out with quality parts and service and maintains quality and service throughout time stays successful rather than starts out good and goes down hill. I have more stuff planed and want to make people feel comfortable knowing when they call and pay extra their doing it for a reason. You know the saying you get what you pay for LOL. I don't get near the service at the Jeep dealer as I do at BMW because I paid more for the BMW. Sorry that's the only example I could think of.

With that being said I rolled the box fee and shipping fee into the price their is nothing I can do about that. I am sure it would have looked better if I listed like this (ex.FG - 1,000.00 + S & H) I'm trying to be as straight as possible no games you know your price it's done. Shipping is not cheap most people know that but maybe they are just putting it out of their head and saying 1200 for FG WOW.

So if it does not go through I'm O.K. with that I understand. Thats why I wrote in the list it's a feeler thread. I'll leave it out their for a while it's only been 24hrs. It took George a while to get 10 sets of coilovers sold.

I hope you guys understand a little bit better and sorry to let everyone down on the price
