Default Cervinis or TruFiber

trying to decide between the TruFiber GTS-3 and the Type IV. From what I can tell, they are both very very similar. Have read mixed opinions about the trufiber....but yah, decissions decissions.

Oh, and if anyone has some pics of this hood with 10x2 stripes would appreciate it. Trying to get a feel for how my Vaper Silver stangs Black Strips will look with a new hood.


Thx guys ^_^

If I were to get a venom hood it would be http://www.trufiber.com/Trufiber_Mus...f10024-a53.htm

I prefer this one to the older ones because it resembles a true venom hood more closely. The support in the middle of the scoop is no where near the front of the hood and the sides of the scoop seem to mesh better with the hood. On the other hoods I've seen the support goes all the way to the front of the hood and is massive as are the sides of the scoop.

P.S. According to everything I've read, the prep time on this hood is ungodly and cost an arm and a leg. I'm mainly undecided myself because I just don't know if I like that hood on a plain GT vs a GT 500...

Ive heard bad stuff about Trufiber, no experience with them though...
I can tell you that Cervinis makes a great product, and your body shop will be happy you chose them.

Trufiber probably has excellent quality, but their customer service is sketchy at best. I remember them treating a forum member really crappy on a hood. I wouldn't purchase one from them.

I have a Cervini hood, and it is excellent quality as well. I didn't have any trouble when ordering from them. The only thing I have heard about Cervini is sometimes there is a delay in their shipping as the parts are sometimes backordered. I just called ahead to make sure the hood I wanted was in stock and ready to go. It arrived to the body shop in 4 days.

I've ordered from Cervini's in the past about 3-4 times and have nothing but good things to say about them. Shipping might take a while (Around 2 weeks), but it's well worth the wait, imo. I've never spoke to anyone from Cervini's so I'm not sure about their customer service.

I would go with Trufiber. I love my gts 3 hood. Great customer service as well. Phil and Brandon are both great guys. As far as prep goes if its done right the hoods come out great.

squirrel502, where in California are you? If you are in SOCAL why dont you go down to their shop and check out their hoods first hand or better yet come to one of the Mustang shows or cruises that happen in SOCAL almost every weekend during the summer and check out the hoods on the cars. Im sure you will be pleased with the outcome. Ive had several different versions and havent had a single problem. And I havent seen anything negative about their service. Contact me and Ill let you know about a charitable large discount they are offering right now.

I had a Trufiber Venom Hood on my old 2005 Mustang GT and was extremely happy with it.

A fellow club member & I are actually planning on getting one for our GT500's in the near future sometime.

As far as customer service is concerned, they've alway been a pleasure to talk to everytime I've called.

I have a TruFiber Venom hood on mine, and I can tell you that it has excellent fit and finish, and is a high quality part. The only thing that I don't like about it is that I need to put hood pins on it because it flutters a bit in the wind. But I had that problem with my stock hood as well, so you can't blame TruFiber for that. I hear that Cervini's makes nice stuff too, but I don't have any experience with them, so I can't speak for them.

I just got my Cervini's hood - they painted it Vista Blue to match my car and the color and fit were both perfect!

Cervinis may be good, however i've never dealt with them..

Trufiber for me, as a first time customer was great! The hood came in 4 days to the body shop and they called to double check and make sure someone would be there at that time and day and the body shop was quite pleased with the hood as they said word for word "compared to a lot of the hoods we have worked on this fiberglass hood was excellent quality and didn't require much work at ALL"

anyone second guessing trufiber should second guess their second guessing because with all the members here with there products and with the drive that trufiber has to make there customers happy i dont see why anyone would even second guess them?

hearing to some may be believing and thats unfortunate for those who hear wrong/unaccurate ifnormation.

Not to mention the nice chunk of change they took off for me from ordering through them!!

If anyone wants close up pictures of this hood I will be happy to provide them to you because if this hood wasn't great, it wouldn't be on my car.

-Greg

Thx for all the replys...and think I will go with the trufiber. Now I have one other question for you all. When it comes to instillation and painting, do you all trust the standard body shops/collision centers?

Trying to do this with budget of $2000 or less, and both "custom" shops in the area have quoted me over $1400 for prep/paint. Where as the collision centers have quoted me $400-$800 for the same work.

My gut is saying go with the custom shops as I know they would properlly prep the hood and ensure it is fitted 100% correctly. I just dont want to be raked over the coals when it comes to cost.

Ok well i will go ahead and throw my 2 cents in...

on cervinis...they make nice stuff its pricey, and most i know who got something from them are very happy. i will add that as far as i know they dont make anything that is carbon fiber...i couldbe wrong...but if they do...they dont advertise it.

as for TRUFIBER...well i could not be happier with my new carbon fiber hood from them. most of the people i know (with a few exeptions) have TRUFIBER products on their cars, from fiberglass parts to carbon fiber parts. this not only includes exterior but interior pieces as well.

i dont know who it was on here talking about their customer service and quality, but if you dont own the product or have never dealt with them then i disregard your comments. "i have a friend of a friend of a friend who said....." puh leeze

the guys at TRUFIBER are as stand up as it gets, they have treated me and my friends (referrals) with the utmost respect and take great pride in their product, and work very hard to ensure customer satisfaction. I have yet to meet a nicer bunch of people.

as for my new and sexy carbon fiber hood from them...well i could not be happier...its a perfect fit, bolted on with no problems, looks great and makes me feel like a million bucks going down the road. if i had a dime for every question or car that sped up to see the hood i wouldnt have to look for a job right now...lol...

i get nothing but compliments, come out of places and find folks taking pictures of the car, and asking questions about the product and company. in fact its not just mustang owners, but BMW challenger camaro, and a few porsche guys. their products are top notch, and functional in that the vents are real, and function properly. the guys at TRUFIBER are 100% professional, their products are great wether its fiberglass or carbon fiber. i have yet to meet someone who has has issues with fitment , painting, warping and the like. And i have yet to meet someone who thinks their customer service is not up to snuff. (i seriously question this claim)TRUIBER and TRUCARBON are excellent quality products put forth by super respectable and friendly people.....

I would also like to add that i believe in their products so much that i will be making a TRUFIBER Music video featuring their products and charity work, that will premier at SEMA in NOV at the TRUFIBER booth. I will be shooting this at various car shows and cruises throughout the summer...

oh yeah my new hood looks stellar, and if your thinking of taking your ride to the next level, then consider TRUFIBER or TRUCARBON products.

No i dont work for them, but i would, the pictures speak for themselves.
