Group Buy: VIS AMS / Terminator CF Hoods - Price Updated..Free Shipping for So Cal

Update to Pricing and Information!!

We have confirmation for a group buy for the VIS AMS Carbon Fiber Hood (in the left picture) and/or the VIS Terminator Carbon Fiber Hood (in the right picture). We can get the pricing below for any combination of the 2 hoods. So, we can order 5 AMS or 5 Terminator, or 3 AMS and 2 Terminator...it doesn't matter. We just need to get to 5.

These hoods come with rain guards.

AMS Hood: $800

Terminator Hood: $725

Shipping: FREE for Southern California, $140 elsewhere

Payment Info:

Once we confirm all of the buyers, we will be provided invoices with Paypal information for us to put down a 50% deposit ($400) and then the other $400 at time of shippment. I believe there are 3 AMS hoods available now, so some of us can pay the whole $800 now and get the hood immedaitely. If waiting for an order, it will take 2 - 3 weeks after deposit.

Cool...I'd like to add that shipping will be the same rate even if multiple hoods are sent to the same location. So, if you get X amount delivered to a specific city (address), it'll be $150 still. Good way to save money if buying with some local buyers.

From what I know of freight shipping it costs the same to ship 10 hoods or 1 hood

Exactly...it's local delivery from their warehouse in So Cal, hence the $30. And, frieght shipping to elsewhere for $150...but can ship multiple items for the same price.

I'm biased because I have the first one . I just had the shop pick mine up, or do it yourself as save the shipping. The manufacturer is close to us I SoCal. I can't remember if you saw my car in person or not Armo, but you can't go wrong with either one. I will say though, that I don't drive my car in the rain because the vents in the good are completely functional and obviously will drench everything under the hood. Even with the rainguards on, the engine and fuse box still has some water left on it from what I've seen when went. I would consider driving another vehicle when it rains just in case. Check out my build thread if you need to see pics.

But they all get shipped to the same place. That's the catch

Can't blame you for being biased man...it's a sick hood! I'm in SoCal, so they'll just charge $30 to deliver it to the shop, which is no biggie. I do recall seeing yours (in Simi if I'm not mistaking), but I didn't take a good look. It looked awesome though from what I saw. And I agree with you about the vents and rain. I plan on not driving this car in the rain ever, especially after I get my hood. I really wanted to get the Unrestricted Motorsports hood, but the vents on that seem much more "open" than even this hood, so I'm not too sure about that one. Thanks for looking out though...appreciate the info. Looking forward to the next meet.

A $30 shipping charge is great to be honest. I know what you mean about the unrestricted motosports hood. In all honesty, I was soooo close to getting that one too, and I wouldn't let the openness of it deter you from getting it. You'll run into the same potential problems with either IVS or Unrestricted hood. You won't be driving in rain though, so you can run either hood without any worry whatsoever! Give all three hoods some serious thought as they are all badass. One of the guys in our club named Mohawk has the terminator hood and I have to say, it's bad to the bone man. Good luck with the decision, as they are all sweet as all hell.

All valid points. I'll need to decide. I'm just wondering if there's too much going on with the U.M. Hood. That's also why I'm leaning towards the AMS vs Terminator because it's more subtle. Do you by chance have a few pics of Mohawk's hood, or a link where I can see it on the car? I'm having trouble finding some installed pics of the Terminator hood.

Does anyone know where these are manufactured?

I just picked up an IOM 2SS and am already thinking about a hood, but whenever possible, I prefer to pick up parts made in America. (in the effort of keeping total disclosure, I own a carbon fiber company, but I'm not big enough to take on hoods just yet.)

They are in Southern California.

At least 5, but the more the better, since I would try to workout the best deal with them.

They are definitely carbon fiber....at least the ones you order directly from company are. Some online deals from random vendors that aren't well known could be selling knock offs though for cheap and probably aren't carbon fiber, and it's likely crappy quality. Stok with the real hood, and you should be fine.

I just got off the phone with my guy to confirm these are not knockoffs and what proof we would have. He said that all of the hoods have the VIS emblem / engraving in the back along with valid serial #s.

Btw..after seeing the pics of the Terminator hood of your friend's car, my decision is even harder to make now...haha. That hood looks badass!! This is a toughy. Oh, and he said he'll actually do free shipping to So. Cal and $140 to everywhere else after I discussed shipping options some more.

I understand where they are, but do they make the hoods personally & domestically, or do they outsource & import?

Not trying to be disagreeable; just understand where my money goes and to whom.
