Default seibon carbon fiber hood questions?

hello all, i am currently thinking of purchasing the seibon carbon fiber hood, i was just wondering if any of you guys allready has it installed or has had some kind of experiance with it, how is the fitment, from what i have read on the forum, some say that there are some gaps, but others say that its perfect fitment, and how is the quality of the product. And for those who allready have it installed are you happy with it. Your help and input will be much appriciated.

If I recall correctly, there was a post of someone who had installed a carbon fiber hood that actually weighed slightly more than stock. As far as fitment, I don't recall the owner reporting any problems.

Only one way to find out as it may turn out well for you and not for others.

The hood I bought for my 350 years back was overall pretty good. There was no weight savings at all. The fitment was great. But have seen some hoods that had gaps. But that's only cause I was looking for it. Wouldn't of noticed if I hadn't had one installed. Had to adjust the hood prop to have it fasten properly. Still had hood pins installed. Didn't trust it before I even bought it. Then after about six months the hood started to develop stress cracks around the hood pins and then some around where the hood vents were. But it wasn't that big of deal. I guess it's to be expected though. I've also seen some turn yellow. But I had clearcoat installed and it was always garage kept.

Hopefully Seibon has addressed some of these issues. I still would consider buying another. Here's some pics
