I think he means the fiberglass to cure. Before my hood was painted my painter left it in the paint booth for almost 2 weeks before he would paint it. He said the reason being was to make sure the fiberglass was fully cured.

They didn't do that with my hood. The painter painted it and I got it the next day. Hmmm. Neutral

Not paint curing. Not fiberglass curing either.
You run a fiberglass hood unpainted on the car and drive it for anywhere from 2 weeks to a month and a half.
It's heat cycling.
As you drive the car and the fibers in the hood get hot, it reshapes itself to the form of your car for a better fit.
You let it cool and it sets in the new shape.
Do this over and over again and you've got a hood that fits better, doesn't flex, and won't crack the paint when it's all finished.

The paint booth is also heat cycling, never heard about your theory of shaping itself to the car. Its good to know that though.

It was something that I did with my TruFiber hood by accident but when Jerome and I talked to one of the guys at VFN they coined the term, told J how long to run it untouched by a bodyshop, and recommended it.

That hood looks AWESOME!!! I had to take the little rubber bump stops off, so the hood would go down a little more, did you try lowering those rubber bump stops??

Yeah, he had already taken one off before he got to my house and then we took off the other one when he got here. It ended up just being the stock airbox (which he's already modified 'til the CAI gets to him) and the coolant tank cap.

Man, that's nice. It sure would look good in PLUM with a Black Matte Hemi Decal! Rolling Eyes

Wouldn't VFN already figured the Stock box & Cap into their design & fit?

I say get someone to play with the Hood in Photo shop. You should definitely continue your Stipe colors similar to you old one (in a way)
