IT'S ON ITS WAY FROM SEIBON
Can't wait to see how it looks.
THEY JUST DELIVERED MY HOOD ON THE PORCH
I SAW IT ON THE CAMERA
NOW I'M WATCHIN' THE PORCH FOR SOMEONE TO MESS UP AND CATCH THESE BONEY HANDS
What time you get home?
Not until 5 PM CST
I WANT MY CAR PARTS
It's okay. Just think about what your car is gonna look like with that hood on there. It's gonna be sooooo nice.
will you get it put on today?
Depends on how sturdy the latch feels when I get home. If it seems wobbly, I'll go over to Smiley's and get some pins first.
Well...the anticipation is killing me! Especially since all I got goin on my car are some rain guards. Which in all fairness got here like 4 days early, score!
Please don’t get those metal looking good pins you see on all race cars. Get some of those black push button style ones.
The ones on the left....
Firstly, it came in a pizza box, which was hype. Secondly it came with a little envelope mailer with a STICKER ... and some documentation.
So on the last page of the Seibon documentation, it says pins are REQUIRED.
Smiley's only had those metal pins like the ones @Nomar06 was mentioning. I don't like the way those look at all! I'm going to take a road trip up to the big Summit store in Arlington tomorrow to get some Aerocatches and do this right. I'm gonna make an appointment to see a friend of my Dad's who does body work to have the whole thing made real professional-like.
I left it in the package because I'll probably end up transporting it to the Body Shop soon. I did hug the box, I am unashamed.
Well, I got some pins. I got some Aerocatches with a carbon fiber print on them with locks. Summit didn't have them in store, so I ordered what I wanted on Amazon instead.
So yeah, I'm on that Cup Noodle squad for this month! Aerocatch Carbon-Look hood Pins with Locks are like 120 USD.
I feel fancy like @Nomar06 but man that purchase hurt lmao
Worth it. Gotta treat that Seibon right.
Thank you for the laugh!
Okay! So update for everyone:
1. Thanks @fahnix for the sticker hook-up! I 1000% recommend hitting him up if you're wanting stickers made for anything! This is coming from someone who absolutely loves stickers and is admittedly very picky about their quality . If anyone wants one, please PM me and I'll send you one. They aren't waterproof, so I wouldn't recommend using them on something that will be out in the weather. The current cost for a sticker is $1.
Right now I have
Secondly, I got my hood pins! I'm glad I got them, but now that I know that the 'Carbon Look' means vinyl overlay on existing plastic model, the 2x price hike seems unfair. It looks like the pins will be on either side of where the radiator mounts.
$1 for the sticker? That's too expensive... Just kidding
1st! Dibs on a blue one
Oh ****. Can’t believe I haven’t seen this.
Bruh u into vinyl
OOOOOH Dang, Ron! What kind of player do you use?
