Let me throw my .2 in.

First, if you don't have any experience with trufiber and go purely on " he say " you can keep that to your self. It's not " right " to bash a company just because you " heard " it was that way.

I saw someone posted something about trufiber customer srvc being shady.
I beg to differ. Phil is one of the most coolest guys there and I'll tell you why.
I ordered my venom III hood about 2 years ago or so ( maybe longer, can't remember ). And also ordered the hood lift kit.
I noticed right away that the hood lift kit would not fit right. I called Trufiber and left a msg. Phil called me back in about 5 minutes and said he would send a new kit out. I had it at my door in less than 3 days. And I was in florida at the time. Not a single squeeak out of him and he kept me happy the entire time.

Second. The hood. I took it to a shop that worked on nothing but restoring and customizing old cars and doing custom paint jobs. ( My club referred me there and I could not have been happier )
The guys said that they were surprised how good the quality of the hood was. They said usually fiberglass hoods are pretty crappy, but they were amased at how this hood did not give them headaches at all.

I'm super happy with my hood, the fit is perfect, and I know for a fact I will order from them again in the future.

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 ^_^
I have the Cervinis hood and a trufiber one....both are great companies and the design and functionality of the Trufiber is what I always wanted...my Trufiber hood has yet to be painted as it would have cost me 1300 in prep and paint to get it to the show quality that I wanted and it sits in the garage waiting for me to get er dun!...Nothing bad to say about Cervini and IMO the Trufiber hoods require much more prep or for you to know a paint and body guy that will do it for cheaper (or quoted you before ever having prepped on of those bad boys) as I said great look and design but much prep needed on the Trufiber....:/

I can tell you that Cervinis makes a great product, and your body shop will be happy you chose them.
I agree!

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.
My exp is customer service was great but the quality of the hood (and not always) was questionable at best..:/

Looks amazing!

Again another amazing example!!!!!

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.
I think your 1400 dollar quote was realistic..(read the beginning of my post) but glad you got a much better deal and hope you get all that your paying for and post up some pics when done! enjoy!
