    Look back in my history and find my black 95 gt. I ran their hood. Fit decent but the middle of the cowl had a slight dip. Had to fill and block it out.

    I wouldn't... This is coming from a guy that's local to them so I have heard all their horror stories COUNTLESS times. So many nice cars getting f'd up from their junk flying up on them. Unless you plan on doing a good bit of work to it and running hood pins. Id much rather buy a Cervinis or Boss Inc. Hood. Just do a search over on corral about Champion hoods......

    I just did a search on corral and nothing came back. I'm also in the market for a hood and was considering one of theirs

    I bought my 4 inch cowl from them and went and picked it up and they gave it to me for 125 as a fresh cast. I mean for the price I got what I paid for but it fit right and the cast was good no waves. Just needed some pits filled in and the edges finished. But for a cheap hood I feel like it was worth the price.

    To me, this is unacceptable for a new hood.
