Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

my shop was able to sand down the FI logos without a hitch.

but mine was cf before I painted it so not nearly as bad as the FG i have seen. Looks like vinny has the same waves and his is an ealy FG one IIRC.

Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

My FG one was actually pretty good. The people that saw it in VA said that is was one of the better FG one's that they have seen.


I just can't wait to get Chad's hood

Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

All of the Medic hoods I have seen pictures of look like they do not line up with the fenders good. Like a raised hump in the center of the fender.

Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

You would think as much as these were going for when they rolled out that they would have at least been high quality...

Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

they started out well then went downhill........I had one of the first 25 or so. that one fit perfect but had shipping damage.

by the time I got a replacement the fit went to hell.


I heard someone say a mold is only good for xxxxx amount of items then needs replaced. maybe they overdid it......

i tried to send back the second one....they denied me....

Re: the Medic hood is JUNK...but a very friendly hood.....

I received Adam's CF hood, who lives in CA and had a SC jeep. He had the 3rd CF one made and it fit's pretty darn well. Only flaw is that it isn't straight, the gaps on each side are not even... (That was a problem with the mold, so they are all like that)

It was like all the others. A bit raised in the middle, and gap's weren't even.
Although, it didn't have all the waves like every one else. It was the one of the last hoods Paul sold through the company.
