Default $99.95 Real Carbon Fiber Hood Dampers

We're going to blow folks away with our $99.95 delivered price on Daddy's SCP's real carbon fiber hood dampers. Hood dampers are all the rage and for good reason. Having our hoods held in position by that manual bar is a safety hazard. I've personally almost taken my head off when replacing my downpipe because it's all too easy to lift your head, hit the roof and nearly knock the bar off. Hood dampers should be a purchase by everyone and we want to make that happen in style. In addition to offering a killer delivered price of just $99.95(Alaska and Hawaii have additional charges) we're also making sure we can serve our customer in ways others can't. How? Not only will we have the cf hood dampers stocked but we'll also have stocked extra ball ends and extra retaining pins. When I did my install I nearly lost a retaining pin because they are small and easily misplaced if your a knuckle-head like me. If your buying from another vendor they would more than likey have to pillage a complete in stock set...and not many will want to due that. We're thinking ahead so we can serve our customers they way we would want to be serviced so we'll have spare parts from the get go when/if needed. Install takes about 10 minutes, all plug and play. There isn't a more satifying mod out there for the money. The CF has just the right amount of bling. You'll also appreciate the fact that we haven't put our label over the carbon fiber. Honestly, the CF is so perfect you want to show it, not show some company label on it so we've intentially left them clean. This item will be shipping 2nd week of November if not sooner. We've got a 14 day ETA from our manufacturer.

Here is the direct link to order, you won't be charged until we ship:

I put them on backward initially....I'm so cool

To answer another question. The ball ends are nickel plated. Probably suitable for most folks. Stainless steel ball ends are available for an extra $19.95. Just put "SS ball ends" in the order notes. You'll get the units with the origonal ball ends plus a bagged set(4) of SS. If your a west coast customer you can save a few $$. If you live in New England or other areas that get real winters maybe opt for the SS.

I have a set of dampers from another vendor however I'm missing a retaining pin. I wanted to order some extra ones, say 4, but no one offers them. Can I get them from you, Rich? PM me a price please. Thanx.

Jasvboost - $9.95 plus shipping. You could also just get a complete set of SS ball ends for $19.95 with the pins. Your situation speaks directly to my opening comment of being able to service customers.

GripGC8 - I haven't looked at a GC8 hood in a while. If there is someone in the Leominster, MA. area with a GC8 I would meet up with them and take a look. Just need to see if the stock mounting hardware will work.

djhowie99 - That would most likey be a custom application. The weight is different and the strut travel would be different as well as the overall mounting. We have a manufactuer in Canada that can make units to any spec for us but we'd need reasonable demand to be able to do it.

Possibly, I'll need to peak at the LGT to see if the mounting is any different and if the length needs to be any different. As soon as I can confirm I'll post back.
