Almost certainly. They only wrapped the front of the hood in a thin layer of cellophane and a plastic bag. Pretty obvious that something banged into it.

It's so weird how they still don't. People had these issues regularly for the past decade. Hope it gets sorted quickly. I don't think cf hoods are covered by the shipping company's insurance.

Don’t worry! Just pay return shipping out of pocket and wait another 6 weeks then you can play seibon roulette and see if the next hood is any better!

I'm working with THMotorsports to resolve this issue. I will say that THM has been very helpful and responsive.

Brand spanking new since my Z leaves the garage once in a full moon lol.

Seriously though, i swear marking something as fragile just guarantees it's going to get banged up.

If it is not cracked, take it to a body shop and have it re-cleared. That may would polish out, hard to tell from a picture.

I worked for UPS many moons ago, when I loaded trucks there were multiple people yelling the time left to pack.

"Fragile" and "this end up" literally meant nothing.

Pretty much everything is thrown.

Freight is good though.

Thanks. 3 of the dents go totally through the coat in places. I'm figuring on getting it painted to match the Z anyways. That being said, I paid over $900 for an undamaged hood. I will get what I paid for.
