What is involved for install? Do they come with hood latches and pre drilled holes for struts? CF is clear coated?
Hey yes they will fit
Hoods have holes for the Hinge's and a hole for the piston Ball.
The OEM Hood has threaded rods sticking out of the hood but we avoid assembly the same way since they may get broken or bent in shipping. We will avoid this by giving 4 bolts in the wood legs attached to each hood that will be reused like all of our 05-10 hoods do.
The hood catch and bolts will be taken off the OEM hood and reused in our hood also like all of our 05-10 Hoods.
The hoods have no Auto Clear/Paint it is our coating it is a UV Gel that we have also been using for 7 years and our MFG for 12 years with no reports of yellowing or cracking to date. Not sure if I listed all that up top I will have to go read and I'll copy it here if I did from the first post cool? I think it's a few posts down I'll look.

Not at this time a good selling hood sells in the 100's as you see this is not a huge market and don't feel another option is smart since the cost is so high to get these mfg. we are just trying to break even on this honestly and so far with what's sold are not.
Heck if it makes money in 12 mo. great
Now the Chinese companies may do one since they don't MFG in the USA and almost everyone else is in Mexico and that is a fact! Their are defiantly trade offs from theirs to ours like Paint, Chopper guns to spray fiberglass and just cheaper materials this is where the theories of yellowing fogging and cracking come in the world of Carbon just cheaper build materials and processes. I can't build a hood for what some companies are selling retail for. I think the biggest difference to anyone looking and feeling one of our hoods vs any other company not knowing anything about Carbon Fiber is our hoods are lighter than OEM not heavier and our shine is defiantly deeper and only gets better over the years as long as it is taken care of since the Gel is so hard Vs Clear Paint.
