Send it back, and make them send you one, shipped properly...

Other than that Epoxy resin...

Yes, there's a way to repair it. But, like bodywork, it would take knowledge and skill. This is a good place to start.

I think regardless if you don't want it to look like crap your going to have to paint a border around your hood. carbon fiber repair is extremely hard if you are trying to leave the product unpainted and I know of no one that can fix it without recovering the whole outside of the hood. My suggestion would be to fix the corner with fiberglass and paint a border around your hood to hide any of the repair work but above all the best idea would be to send it back because it was damaged.

my seibon cf hood flew off my car and i had to get it fiberglass patched and i had to paint the hood in order to cover it up. basically the only way to solve it. but my hood is custom and kick ass now and i get the most compliements about it. so maybe itll work out for the better.

I'm having hair line cracks forming on my hood at the edges of the hood scoop. It is only the resin carcking. I'm planning on getting a FMIC so I will change the scoop soon.

My main concern is to stop the cracks from spreading. It would be great if I could repair this if possible. Can any of you help offer some info for this matter?
