Default Another Trackspec Motorsports hood vent install

So I used to have a vented carbon fiber hood, then sold it to make moving to another state easier. Bought another carbon hood but didn't like the way it fit, so I decided to go the Trackspec Motorsports vent route and am totally happy.

Install took several hours working at a slow and meticulous pace ensuring the cuts were placed right. I had a friend of mine help me out (aka I drank beer and helped hold things lol). The kit came well packaged and the vents felt like quality pieces. The included hardware and cut templates worked awesome too.

The short rivets are aluminum. The long rivets are steel. Expect some rust on the steel rivets if you used them.

I had a mix of long and short rivets. All of them were black. The short ones was aluminum, and the long ones was steel. The same for Leingod when I installed his.

Which two CF hoods did you have prior to this very well-done install?

Thanks for the quick reply. I had a Seibon TS hood delivered two-three weeks ago, and it looked great, until we unwrapped the part where it had been hit by a forklift in transit.

If they didn't hit every item in the warehouse with a forklift. They're slipping. The stuff I've seen in the last 2 years.
