    I searched about 4 different ways, but only found one other thread on certfit hoods. I am considering one, but i would like to know how they fit. Does anyone have one, or know? On another forum a few people said they fit a bit off, and others said it was good. Also, what is the fit/finish quality like? Do they come with the inner-support pieces? Thanks.

    It's seems after painting, be almost cheaper to find an already factory matched used one.

    I don't have experience with their hoods but I have used other certifit products with good results.

    If its CAPA certified it should fit fine, if not its a gamble.

    400$ to paint the hood thats way to much, start asking around advertise cash money. i got a tailgate painted for 100$ once that included the guy producing the paint, it was an exact match. he just really needed the money.
