*DISCLAIMER* All carbon fiber and fiberglass hoods are going to be incompatible with OEM gas strut hood lifters that may be equipped on your vehicle. To use gas struts with a lightweight hood will require using lower weight rated lifters. Using OEM spec lifters can cause stress and cracking on a composite hood and will void the warranty on the item.

**We recommend that any carbon fiber parts that see exposure to the sun get sprayed with automotive clearcoat at your local autobody shop. Automotive clearcoat will give your Carbon Creations product 5-10 years of protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. To prepare your carbon fiber part for clearcoat it will need to be sanded to a 400 grit finish and then rubbed with a gray or red scotch brite pad. Clean the surface with denatured alcohol prior to spraying the clearcoat. For any assistance with composites related finishing please contact our in house specialist here.

You will then accept the shipment as is, and notify us immediately. We will ask for digital pictures to verify that damage has occurred as it will be needed for processing the claim. In the instance major damage has occurred, we will file a damage claim with the shipper and ship you new parts as soon as they are available.
