Thats the hood I got on my car, I have been trying to tell people about the deal. But everyone gets those crappy unlimited product hoods.

I priced my hood from these guys in March. I wanted a 2" bolt on. The cost was
$539. after rebate, shipping was $105 plus $45. home delivery fee.
I decided right or wrong with the unlimited hood. Total cost for hood and lighter tension springs and shipping insurance was $412. Shipping was $80.
I spent about 2 hours on the bottom of the hood getting it smooth and prepped to coat. It will not be show quality but I think it will look nice. I am however very pleased with the fit especially up front along the grille. The latch works perfect.
Sounds like you guys got a great deal. Please post some pics when you get it. I like the look of a cowl hood on these cars.

I got a 2 1/2 cowl hood from unlimited products. It's the worst fiberglass hood I have ever seen. I got it and there was some what I'll call pits in the fiberglass of the hood and the far left and right body line's pretty much fade away into the back of the hood. Well I was gong to just leave it and fix it when I get into body work. Well today I mounted the hood on the Car. Go to close it and it hits the left fender. Well I start to measuring it and the whole thing is molded a 1/2 inch to the leftov the hood hinges. I'm going to call them up and return this piece of junk.

I have been trying for a week to get ahold of somebody at us body to get a shipping quote, but no luck. I've sent numerous emails and called multiple times during "customer service hours" but only get a recording :rolleyes:. This is getting really old, does anybody know another way to contact them?

Well, I finally got ahold of them. I told them that i have been trying to contact them for a week now and his response was "well, whatever, we are here now". I told him that their customer service sucked and he freakin hung up on me! I called back and asked for a supervisor or manager and he said "we don't need your buisness" and hung up again! I will NEVER buy from US Body Source, thats for sure. :mad:

Their stuff is not bad for the price. Just gotta spend a little extra time on the body work. I can tell you that their cheaper hoods seem to need a little more work. It's all about the budget!:D
