Subject: 85-89 TOYOTA MR2 carbon fiber hood


I wanted to say I'm in credibly impressed with Deft Racing.  Everything exceeded expetactaions.  I honestly figured I'd have to do several hours of buffing, clear coat the hood, and then spend days trying to the get the fitment right.  However, the hood, the packaging, and the shipping exceeded all of those expectations. 

The hood arrived yesterday, earlier than the online estimated delivery date.  Perhaps a testament to PilotAir.  The box was intact, the foam "noodle" pieces were protecting any part that might puncture the box.  

The hood slid straight out of the box.  On inspection, I decided the hood was not in immediate need of aesthetic care.  There were  fewer blemishes and/or light gelcoat scratches than I expected, so I decide to install the hood.  Actually these can only be seen on close up/detailed inspection. I plan to buff and clear coat the hood at a later date for durability, no matter what.  The quality of the product in this regard saved me a night of labor.

Then the fitment required only an hour of positioning work.  I have spent more time positioning factory hoods.  The hood was very light, and the factory latch was cut out.  Being uber-weight conscious I still cut some of the supporting fiberglass out from the underside.

I usually do not comment like this, but thanks.  Included are a few pictures of the completed car, you may use these and my testamonial for your purposes.

Best Regards,
Zack B.

Hey Bill,

I just received my product. It fits perfect and looks great. The only concern i have is that there is no hole to screw in stand to hold the hood up. Besides that it is a great product, I am looking forward to future business with your company. I will also recommend my peers and colleagues to shop at your site.

Thank you, Best regards

I just wanted to say how great it is to buy from the actual people that make the hoods at the wholesale/not marked up prices. Its nice when you know that you will get support, instead of just getting junk off ebay that will flake and discolor, only to find the seller has dissapeared when you try to contact them. My hood looks and fits great! Thanks!

Hey Bill,

I know a large part of your website is based on customer feedback, so I thought I would throw in my two cents!

I just want to say thanks, on behalf of myself and my friend who both ordered hoods from Deft Racing.  The customer service was excellent; Bill was happy to offer a discount on combined shipping since we both ordered hoods.  Also, when we received the hoods and realized there was a mix-up in the colors that we had ordered, it was taken care of immediately and smoothly.  A truck came and picked up the incorrect hoods, which saved a lot of hassle for me, and within days we had the correct ones on the door step.  In addition to the great customer service, the hoods look ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!  Once again, thank you for the great experience, and I will be recommending you to everyone!

Having just installed the Deft 3000GT vertical doors i must say it was not only a piece of cake but they work amazingly easy. The directions that come with them make it very easy.

I got the hood 3 days ago, gotta say, deft definately knows what they are doing, and damn well at it too!. the hood looked great! much better than that seibon stuff. very pleased with the product, i'll post up some pictures as well when i get the chance. More people should get deft hoods instead of seibon stuff, the quality is great. Fitment was perfect. came well packaged, and the hood is lighter than stock!Plus, it has the original holes for all the grill hardware marked out. Bolted my vent thing right up to it.

great product, props to bill and the guys at deft!

Hi Bill, 

My carbon hood arrived yesterday, I just want to say how impressed I am, not only with the hood itself which is outstanding but with the whole process from beginning to end.

I had my doubts about buying a hood from America and shipping it to new Zealand, I thought it would most likely arrive and either be not exactly what i ordered or it would be damaged in some way, I can say that not only is it exactly what i wanted but that the way it was packed there was no chance of it being damaged in transit.

I'd also like to thank you for the regular updates by email, it definitely puts your mind at ease when your half a world away. thanks again bill, much appreciated.

Subject: hey Bill....It's frikkin' awesome!

     Yo..... I received my Scion Xb hood the other day, and yesterday, I installed it.  Perhaps you remember me as the old guy who'd been in the collision business for 30+ years, and was a little concerned about how the CF hood would fit......and, you honestly told me that it wasn't gonna be the EXACT same fit as the OEM hood....( I bet you're thinking this is gonna be a letter of dis-satisfaction, aren't ya...??..)....well, please read on .....     

Let me say how awesome the color weave in the hood is....I dont know exactly what the color on my car is "called" but, I swear, it looks as if the "red" part of the weave is a pefect match!!...I wasn't even going for the color match in particular.  I just wanted the color to be somewhere in the realm of not clashing...I give you guys an A+ for this.. .I'm more than pleased!!     

It took no more time than any other aftermarket hood to make it fit my car in a professional way..( actually, yours was a pretty "easy" one......I've had others in steel from who-knows-where-indonesia-china that took longer to make [sorta] fit......)  A little shift of my hinges, and a teeny bit of  "egging" of the holes had the hood fitting.....PERFECTLY!!..I mean it man, it's way better than I expected....I'll give yas' an "A" on this...hahah!!...

I didn't even need to move my latch...what a nice feeling when i finally got the lines nice, and re-installed the latch, to hear it click closed and secure the first time i tried it......and...and, no slamming!!...I swear, it closes like a frikkin jewlry box!!

Overall, I cant say enough about this most rewarding experience, Bill. After having my OEM hood vandalized by someone who felt the need to see what an old tire would do to it when thrown over a fence onto my car, it didnt start out in a way that I thought would ever make me happy again.   Man, was I wrong!!...This is a perfect (and waaaay cooler) outcome then I was expecting.

If you want to use any part of this E-mail on your site, you have my permission. If I had seen a testimonial from an old body guy that said his hood was awesome, I wouldn't have hesitated one, maybe this will help others who are thinking about the CF hoods. Have a good venture buddy.

I hope this works out for yas.....Peace...Ben

You have been really good at getting back to me and keeping me updated on the progress.

I hope you have a great holiday season.

Hi Bill,

Just to say a big thank you for sorting my CF hood for my Prelude! It arrived a couple of days ago and is by far the best I've ever seen, and was very securely packaged. 

Do you have any Deft stickers at all?!

Many thanks again,

To all at Deft Racing, I just wanted to say that I am extremely happy with the hood I recieved. It looks so much better than I expected. I was amazed at the simplicity of the install. You guys did a great job.

Also, I put my car in a show last Sunday and won first place! It was an open show, but my car was the only import there, everything else were classic and muscle cars.

Once again, great job.

Hi there, went and checked out the hood at the body shop today when I dropped off the eclipse for its repairs. WOW. Just WOW. Amazing quality, and look like great construction (not that I'm well versed on hood building) :) I'm quite satisified. Liked very much bolting in the wood pieces to help protect the corners, very thoughtful decision. Looking forward to having the piece on my car!

Hi Bill,

It is not often that I offer up many compliments on products I buy via the Internet........  BUT.... In this case I am compelled to tell you how happy I was when I received the Eclipse CF hood!!!

Most of the items I have purchased on the Internet require, at least, some finish work to meet my standards.  Not so with your product!!!  After the car was painted I just bolted the hood on and sent it out the door!  The quality of your product is superb!!  I would not hesitate to recommend DeftRacing to any one who needs a GREAT QUALITY hood!!

Along the same lines.....  it is also not common for Internet sellers to respond to emails etc.  Thanks for taking care of my worries about getting the hood on schedule!!!

Thanks again for all your great help,

Attn: Bill Re: 2003 Toyota Corolla Carbon Hood

Thank you! I love the silver carbon fiber hood. It looks great on my 2003 Toyota Corolla. I also installed locking hood pins. Recently, I installed my windshield wiper nozzle to my hood. Thank you very much!

I would definitely recommend anybody who want to install a carbon fiber hood on their car. It has been raining for the past few months in California and the hood remains the same. I was worried but the hood hasn't deteriorated because of the weather.

I have included a new picture of my car and I hope you would post it on your website. You don't need to worry if you order the hood from Bill.

Thank you!

It's real easy for me to cut and paste a bunch of happy customers emails; it's when a problem comes up that you really see how a company handles itself. Read on about seans situation. Then after that, some more happy customers!

sent wrong year bar

I ordered the light bar for my eclipse while I was in Iraq on may 5th, 2005, When I got back from my deployment I go to get it put on and it's the wrong year model. I ordered the 99' and you sent the 03', I need the mailing address so I can send it back.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Light Bar


When you ordered you actually didn't specify what year bar you wanted. That said, you asked about beige vs. black. I sent you pictures of an '03 eclipse in Beige (see below) that you decided was good in beige. That's why you got that bar and year.

Normally if someone came to me for an order 10 months old I'd say it was way past the time of exchanging it, but you were in Iraq and I respect that alot, so I made a call to CDC. I explained that you were in Iraq and asked if we could bend the rules for a US soldier and they agreed.

It's also harder because you ordered a custom color (we don't stock beige as it is rarely ordered, so your bar was custom made to order). Assuming the bar is is good shape (we're guessing its just been sitting in the box and is undamaged) you can ship it to us. When it gets here we will ship you a new beige bar for your model year, and we will further pay the shipping costs to get the new one to you. To confirm you need a '99 bar in beige.

Best Regards, -Bill

Re: Mitsubishi Eclipse Light Bar

Yes a 99' beige bar, and the old one still brand new sitting in the shed but my dad throw the box away so I need the mailing address one more time and I will send it off on monday..... I'm really thankful for buying from good guys like you keep up the good work. I'm going to be ordering those vert doors soon.

We haven't had it installed yet, but the packaging was bubble wrapped to the power of 10.  I was glad to see the hood latch was supplied and installed, and the hood was bolted to a couple 2 x 4's to protect the top edges.

Your hood comes with a working OEM position latch that works, but some owners like to use the Aerocatch system for peace of mind, especially for road & spirited driving.
