Its funny that so much of their business and marketing revolves around using other companies names and reputations to sell their parts.

I don't think it's funny, I think it's robbery... I'm debating on which direction to go in Law... entertainment, or import... if I go Importation law, I'll learn Japanese, get some of the companies over there to copywrite their designs, and sue the hell out of the knock off companies for at least royalties... ha ha ha...

Pete, actually, that's not true. The hoods trailing edge vents would be more functional at removing engine heat than any other design... why? Heat rises... not to mention you can have the faux vents cut however you like... me, I'm more than likely cutting them all out, with the exception of the back pass. side since my air filter will be right under it... wait, what am I saying, don't buy it, it's a piece of crap...

Actually, no, it is NOT AN ORIGINAL DESIGN!!! it's a Weber Sports Replica... I guess it's easier to market it as a Top secret design since not everyone knows weber sports...
Damn you're right. I should have known better than to thing Seibon may have had an original idea of their own

Hadn't seen the Webber sports one yet. I'm not as big a fan of it as I am the Mugen / J's but hell its much more rare!

Hood should look good on your car veilside! Are you getting the front bumper as well? I know you were selling the CWest....

I like the hood better than the Mugen and J's.
