    MAN please tell me this isnt going to be the next "JDM" mod that everyone hops on the band wagon with. Kinda like the "jdm" plate Relocator brackets.

    To me, (it just looks like you have horrible fitment with your hood) I don't see how people could seem to think this looks cool. I understand it may help vent HEAT better... but... come on..

    Im sure in 3 weeks or so.. my mind will change.. but till then i give it thumbs down.

    i did it for the look

    i used washers and coolant hoses on longer bolts. (yeah, it works and was free/super cheap)

    idk, works for the drift look imo only. looks really bad on cars who dont have flat/rectangular-like hoods

    Those seem to be fabricated pretty well. Are you selling them or something?
