picked up my hood today i have to say VIS did an awesome job of packing it!!! you could prolly drop it off a building and it wouldnt scratch it.. i dont have pics of the whole package because i couldnt fit it into the back of my CRV with all the packing. it was a box about 6 or 7 feet squared and about 8 inches high packed with foam and in the center the hood was wrapped in 2 layers of foam with vis plastic over that.. it feels really light very easily lifted with one hand.. the hood itself is exelent quality no defect of any kind and looks amazing!! im gonna do the install tomorrow night ill post up alot of pictures and the weights of the 2 hood like i mentioned before!! stay tuned :)

Install went very smooth fitment is just like OEM!! It's as simple as loosening the four bolts lifting off the OEM hood you will need 2-3 ppl just 2 to help hold wile you tighten up the bolts.. Then you will need to spend a little time to line it up.. It's very easy I have lots of pics to put up of my install... I'll post all my pics tonight when I get home I had ball and didn't get home till late last night and I had a few beverages after ball so i went right to bed haha but the pics and DIY will be up tonight

o i didnt realize 2012sicoupe live in Hanover, I live about 1.5 hours from there, how much it cost you for shipping and everything for this hood i am really considering it now. I am looking for some weight saving parts I already lost like 50 lbs in changing my rims to my enkies so another few lbs would be alright
