What is the quality of seibon carbon fiber hoods?

I might be getting the "invader" style carbon fiber Hood by the company known as Seibon. I have only heard of them once and that was when I saw a picture. So other than that I don't know anything else. What is the quality, fitment? How does it compare with VIS? Help me out. Thanks

I don't have pics for it. My cousin is my vendor and he lives out in southern cali and he told me that Seibon has the invader Hood. I was originally going to get the VIS Hood but the company over in southern cali have been out of stock for about a month so I just went with these.

I've got one of those sitting in my living room, waiting for the rest of the parts for the car to arrive so I can start to modify the sum'bitch.

Not having mounted it yet, I can't tell you anything about fitment. But what I can tell you is that the Hood LOOKS awesome. I havn't found one single mask in the carbon that's out of place. And the frame underneath the Hood seems to be of good quality aswell. My dad's got a VIS RACING Carbon Fiber Hood, and the seibon Hood just looks miles better.

Oh damn. My bad, I wasn't even paying attention. For some reason when I looked at the picture the second scoop that comes up from the top looks smaller. Is there any difference from it and the VIS version? I don't know the pic to me looks like something is wrong with it.
