Seibon Carbon Fiber Hoods

So, I will be swapping a 3sgte in to my AT180 very quickly (that's a 5th gen ST). My question was about carbon fiber hoods. I really like the styling of them, and it would be functional on my 5th gen, but I've heard mixed reviews on their hoods. Anybody with a 7th gen have any luck with them? or bad experiences? thanks.

Well, do companies do trade ins or give refunds for hoods that don't fit right at all? oh, and do they use the stock Hood latch, or will I have to use pins?

if ur Hood fits bad, your fucked... unless it expensive like veilside (they will send you another one)

i am almost 100% sure that seibon has the stock latch on already

as for pins... i highly reccomend them, safety first

Good to hear positive things about SEIBON. I'm in the middle of ordering their VS style Hood (invader).

Pics of their products?

They got some sweet parts. Envy the honda boys with their complete Carbon Fiber door sides.
