    Hey guys, I was the one on the FB group that made the post about my AB Hood, in which Sergio revealed the new "Version2" hood. Hopefully this time around all fits 110% :thumb: I will be doing a review on the version 2 when I receive it.

    This hood was received by my customer just about two months ago. We installed it and i cut out the pin holes for him. We had to space to rear up and cut out a small section for the timing belt. There were irregularities in the weave. The edges above the lights were not even between both sides. The sides of the hoods didn't seem to follow the same curvature as the fenders.

    All in all it still looked good when it was finished and cleaned off. Never bought a carbon hood before but for $1'200 I'd like to think I'd get better QC. Took forever to get the hood too. When it was finished the first time he called the guy and said they made a mistake and made him a black hood and they would have to make another hood with the red for him.

    I'm guessing from the picture posted of the V2 hood my customer didn't get it. Though his hood was significantly better shaped than slowwhite's hood. So maybe a V1.5? IDK.

    Jacob buddy what's up.

    We should have done a side by side of the 2 cars with the hoods closed.

    Maybe next time.

    I've noticed that the carbonfiber hoods seem to fit better then the regular fiberglass ones. From all the pictures I've seen

    We actually fitted the hood at his house as he had an engine noise he was concerned about and driving back a few hours with an unknown noise wasn't an option.

    So wasn't able to sit them next to each other.

    Well took the white car out for a wash on sunday. And since I needed to roll up the driverside window for the first time since I bought the shell. I had to put a battery in it. Which thr box is in the trunk. Well when I did the plastics fell down revealing a ton of rust. So I contacted Sergio today and have now added his CSL hatch to my order. So I'll be able to give a review on that as well.

    All this is supposed to be ready by the end of the month.

    Well no update for now.

    Looks like Dominic and the crew hit up my shipment enroute...LOL

    Seriously - shipment made it as far as charlotte, NC. But according to the shipping company the drive from charlotte to columbia, sc. Stole the whole truck load including my pallet full of carbonetics parts.
    -hood
    -hatch
    -dash
    -center console (custom)
    -fender flares
    -front lip
    -side skirts
    -doors
    -interior door panels

    Almost everything Sergio offers LOL. So if anyone sees "for sale" add or a car that's out of no where full of carbonetics parts, post it up.

    This was 3 weeks ago. Sergio said they had till July 6th to find the parts then. If not he'd start remaking my parts which he said since they were all fiberglass would only take 2 weeks to remake.

    I'm the one who found out about it and had to call Sergio, he hired them so he had to handle the claim.

    The same shipping company delivered parts to the wrong address on top of getting my stuff stolen.

    I called the shipping company after they hadn't called me to setup a delivery time for 3 days. And that's when they said they hadn't called because the truck arrived but not my pallet of parts amd were trying to track it down when I called.

    Sergio and whoever else helps run the company are all scumbags it sounds like. That seriously irritates the crap out of me that you got screwed over so bad. The dude will have it coming to him. Karma is karma. Can't expect to trust an idiot with a reputation such as that. I'm very sorry you had to go through what you did. And to think I was actually considering to buy some parts from the guy. HAH!

    This one I can't say is Sergio's fault other then hiring YRC freight through (uship.com), how could he know the shipment would get stolen?

    It's definitely been an up and down road.

    But honestly up until my parts got stolen, I felt Sergio was doing what he could to fix my previous issue as well as going above and beyond to make it right. Upto and including shipping my parts with them being paid for (I had originally sent Sergio payment but I was in pesos...no other option was given) so Sergio refunded my money but paypal takes a week to clear. which would have caused me to miss the scheduled shipment date. Sergio went a head and shipped them anyways. And I paid as soon as the money cleared.

    How can Surgio be THIS unlucky? It seems that something is always amiss! I stay by what I said years ago, if you can’t drive to his shop and personally pick up the parts, avoid these guys. NO MATTER HOW TEMPING IT MIGHT BE!

    His shop is in tijuana. I wouldnt recommend going there to pick up parts unless you're coming with passport and prepared to get back through the border in a timely manner. We were supposed to meet him in San Diego near the border and ended up having to drive to him in Tijuana. Needless to say we didnt have our passports (not planning an international trip) and were hassled at the border. Apparently no hablo espanol and being white doesn't prove your citizenship. Not to mention we had a truck load of stuff wrapped in white foam and saran wrap looking like cocaine bags. It was not a fun day.

    His shop is in mexico, there was a delay in my parts due to customs issues also (extra 4 days)

    Anyrate update just heard from Sergio my parts will be ready next week. However his scheduled shipment date isn't till the following week (so 2 weeks out)
    I also inquired about update on YRC shipping and he said the corporate office is now trying to denied the whole thing saying they don't know what happened to the shipment and are claiming they aren't reaponsible. So he has filed now with uship.com against them.

    So in my eyes the way I see it. Sergio is being stand up here and remaking my parts out of his own pocket currently and not waiting till he gets his money...like any decent shop should do.
    Now well just have to wait and see if it actually plays out this way. (ie: shipment happens etc etc)
    I was really hoping to have my car all done for the shootout this year. Would have been my first year going.
    And I got my first eclipse back in 1999 just been one thing after another that's stopped me from going was really hoping this year would be the year.

    I also saw it, but he is in CA and parts are not the same. Must be just coincidence.

    Lol I saw that just now and thoughts exactly.

    However Sergio did say YRC also delivered a pallet of parts for a different customer to the wrong address as well.... just saying.

    I've thought about forwarding that ad to sergio

    SlowWhite, no offense meant whatsoever, but you are either the most gullible or the most patient man I have ever met, the fact that he just changed his story midstream should be proof (at least in my eyes) that he is FOS and has been from the start..

    Either way I hope you get your parts, but I would not deal with this guy if he were the last person on earth to make parts for this platform.. :f-u: :toobad:

    Ya I'm sorry man but something about all of this just seems a little too fishy. You actually have a Bill Of Lading copy or YRC Pro Number to prove he even sent the parts out at all? If not could be the truck arrived without the pallet because he never sent the pallet out at all. And this whole stolen truck story was because he was still a couple weeks behind on getting them out.

    Anyone that has one of these hoods want to take me several hi-res pictures?

    I'm toying with the idea of running them through 3d modeling software and printing the vents for a custom hood that fits properly over the timing cover.

    I'm overly patient, but a lot of that is because my red car is at a shop right now anyways, so even if my parts showed up I couldn't use most of them.

    If my car was actually here, and it was effecting my race season. I wouldn't be as patient.

    As for tracking info etc yes. I have all of that. Here's the website of the company used as well so it's not like they are fake shipping company.

    Ya obviously YRC which is one of the biggest LTL freight companies in the country is a real shipper. I was just making sure you actually had activity on the Pro Number because when you ship something with them you can get the number without actually sending it. Same as getting a tracking number with UPS without actually dropping off the package.

    But sounds like it really is just a series of unlucky events. Hope you get your parts soon!
