You can just shoot me an email with your address for a shipping quote Orders@Blackopsautoworks.com


Quick update:

We are almost ready to roll thanks for waiting and not bugging me you will have 0 issues I make sure of this before it's released.

One issue we have found is the hood prop/strut don't matter where we mount the strut it pushes up on the passenger side of the hood.

We are trying to have a lighter duty hood strut mfg since the OEM hood is heavier and our hood lighter the strut needs to be lighter for a lighter hood I'm on it tho no worries.

Pretty typical with super light cf/fg hoods....the oem hood struts are too strong. They are made for aluminum hoods with twice the weight. I just keep my strut unattached from the hood and when I raise the hood....i just attach the strut.

Not much different at all to be honest as Scott mentions below We haven't resolved this and even with a lighter strut I'm not sure it's gonna work it's not like the 05-10 they put the strut in a funky position.

The OEM weighs 24# and ours should end up less by 5# so like 19-20# this is great but poses the strut issue.
Hood is almost done and I'm doing my best I may just release them and let everyone try to figure it out as we have hit a wall we have one more solution in mind we should be able to test very soon before the release.
