Have a Nice Day? Karbonlite/Tabolau

Well basically as the subject states, stay away from both of them, as they are the same people, or atleast one represents another. So I inquire about the hoods from this company through mr. tabolau, and he provides a picture, a picture which most of you have probably seen, if not I will provide one, so I take a look at the picture and from what I see, it looks flawless, even from the distance it's at. I place the order, receive the hood, and to my surprise when i open the shipping box (which was poorly taped up) i find a half a$$ quality hood, at first it wasn't THAT bad, because it got to me at around 6pm, and there was no sun shining on it, but definitely noticible markings. So I wake up the next morning and take a good look at the hood, and the more I looked at it, the more wrong I found with it.the cut outs where the vents and scoop are, are just poorly done, as if they just sanded the hell out of it, AFTER they put on the gel coat, then the gel coat they put on was done poorly, as there are bubbles and scratches and flakes all over the place. Then comes the scratches from their "highly trained sanding" that are all around the cut outs as well as the edges of the hood (part that meets the fenders). Very unsatisfied with this hood, so becareful who you buy from guys, i wouldn't recommend anyone to buy stuff from either of them, regardless of one of their so called "satisfied customers" says, it's a buncha bull.
