Re: CFR HOOD Bring it back or NOT Group Buy!

Hey guys, long time no talk...

Want to jump in real quick. I owned the hood & splitter both in CF. I have to say Black Ops hood was just insane. The quality was a work of art. I have owned many aftermarket CF parts and 99% had to be sent back. Just junk. Not the case with Black Ops

If he is willing to make this hood again, don't pass it up in my opinion!

PS, my hood was Carbon top / Fiber under. Don't think the underside in fiber is not nice. It's perfect, smooth like butter. Just needs paint.

I tried to find this post on another hood group buy but my posts die in 2012 not sure why anyway I'll do my best to cover it here again.

I will contact all who put their name on the list and place them in order as they paid in full. I will then let them know what number they are at the time of payment.

A mold takes us 8-10 weeks hard to say seems we always have issues so I am giving myself plenty of time not to be rushed and provide a quality hood.

So the wait will begin when I have ALL the cash I can not start it sooner because if 5 pay then this will not happen and I'm sure no one wants their cash back but this is happening with 10 peoples money paid in full up front no less unfortunatly.

Since the cash is just a fraction of what it takes to get this done I need everyone committed with me. If I'm the only one committing then this don't make sense for me to do right LOL. I will then refund whoever pays.

Once all cash is collected I will begin and wait.

I am rebuilding the hood from scratch I am not molding the Carbon one here we will get an oem hood and place all the sculpt work on the new hood I find it yields a better product. Sculpting takes 4 weeks mold takes another 4-6 this is why I give myself the 10 week timeline.

Once the mold is complete I will mail the first one to a test fit guy (Not Ideal). We hope we have someone on the list near Southern California and that wants a fiberglass hood!! This local person no matter where they are on the list in terms of payment will test fit and keep the #1 hood. We will then return to the #1 guy waiting in order of payment. Why do we do it this way if we have to mail out a fiberglass hood it takes a week for someone to receive and another week to figure out if anything is wrong or not and we get the thumbs up to continue. The quicker we get the results and feedback the quicker we continue with the remaining orders so a local is fastest. If we do have any issue (We never do knock on wood) but lets says we do we have to fix it and that could go over out 10 week mark unless we are ahead of schedule.

We have done almost a half dozen group buys and know how to make the process move along best.

PLEASE and I repeat PLEASE DO NOT PAY ME if you are gonna call for an update as I will not have any for you we will tell you to refer back to this thread. I have to be honest here if I get tired of all the updates week after week I apologize now I will be forced to refund you.

I will give you the best time line possible at the beginning and thats what it will be I hold pretty tight with my deadlines may be a week over or so from start to finish of the first hood. I also want everyone to know before paying everyone is working no one is sitting around drinking coffee drinking beer or BullS***ing we are working so the timeline is out of our control it takes what it takes to get it done. If I start getting someone mad at week 10 saying they don't have their hood and start drama over he said she said BS I will Refund. I will go in depth as best I possible can here now.

Once the mold is done the delivery of the #1-10 hoods is next.

In the beginning a new mold is very hard to work with until we get it seasoned so progress is slow we always say a hood a week is built for the first 2-4 weeks then 2 per hoods built a week after week 4. We could see having an additional 6-8 weeks of build time on all 10 hoods. Now we know the timeline of assembly on all 10 hoods we match that with the design and mold 8-10 weeks gives us 15-18 weeks total.

Now lets say we have a Dec 1st start date. I feel we should be delivering product from March-April and have them all built at least the first 10.

Any new Orders after the group buy will have a much longer wait hard to even give a timeline. Xmas and Tax season we are typically 12 weeks anyway. I wouldn't wait if anyone is on the fence and you want to see these by summer show season I would get in now No Joke.

I'm sorry if I am a little blunt and I may come off as a jerk but I know what happens and what I have dealt with in the past and just try to keep my blood pressure down by avoiding certain comments pertaining to timelines and such LOL. I feel it's better to be straight up and lay it all out with NO BS to gain a sale not my style. I don't like holding cash and paying 10's of 1,000's of dollars with other peoples money then start getting accused of not delivering as promised. I do my best and have no interest in stringing people along not why I'm here honestly. I'm here to deliver everyone a really nice quality product and be fair.

I hope I explained it all well enough for everyone to understand. Please feel free to ask any questions please or call 239 691 7515 if I don't answer leave a message I am typically on one call to the next all day.

Thanks
Chad

+1 for the Hood and Lip in 100% CF. For me, it's all or none, if the hood doesn't get produced I won't need the lip. Thanks for doing this!!! Shipped in US
