Well
i got the hood lastnight and just finished installing it.
its not very user friendly but after a while it fit fine.

You do lose windshield sprayers they can be installed but its lots of drilling.

Stoppers dont fit in holes.

Shitty latch here, need to fix with a better one.

Altogether i think it looks alright, no huge gaps or nothing.

For the stopper holes you just need to file out the edges so that the stopper can be threaded in. Looking at the picture there looks to be a glob of fiberglass on part of the edge on the smaller hole.

Drill a small pilot hole before you drill big for the hood pins. Its easy
