Hey I don't know but I'm thinking that if you want a good quality CF hood your more than likely going to have to pay the good price that goes along with them. However, I could be wrong.

There's a member on here selling a used one with sun hazing. You can a) DIY and reclear coat it. or b) Have it done at a body shop with clear coat.

or... c) Buy a brand spankin new one(brand name) for the quality and longevity of the clear


G'luck

I think the process is using sandpaper to remove the existing clear, then spray a whole new coat. So.. I'd fish around and ask for prices first then look for reputation. Shouldn't be anymore to $100-150 out the door. Not entirely sure though..
