Hi guys, I bought a cf hood from some guy on ebay, and when I received it, the carbon fiber hood was damaged. The seller is willing to replace me, but told me I have to destroy the hood before he can send me out another new one. Have you guys ever destroyed your own hood to get a warranty replacement?? Can you show me some of the pictures you have that are damaged please?? This is very URGENT, please reply me with pictures :) Thanks!!!

I did that before, that's why they said the factory will replace me the hood as a warranty replacement, but before sending out to me, they need a proof(pictures) from me damage my carbon fiber hood!!

Any of you guys encountered this problem and had to destroy it??

Well no. You see, that would be insane.

That is exactly why I'm posting on here to see if anyone had a warranty replacement before?? I just sent an email to carbon creations, and might give them a call tomorrow. But if that's the case(destroying my hood to get it replaced), do I really do it?? = ="

They prolly want you to destroy the hood so when they send you the replacement hood, they will know that you won't go and sell the one you initially received. This will also save you or them money on shipping the damaged hood back.

If you really think this is shady then call Carbon Creations themselves.

cf hoods can be damaged during shipping. they even warn you b4 u when u order. if it is damaged u dont sign for the package and the shipping company pays for it.

I think you are right, they dont want him to sell the damaged hood, and they dont want to pay for the shipping back because it does cost quite a bit to ship hoods and bumpers..

Or they want more damage on the hood to file a claim with the shipper.
