I was very sad to find out that Eric passed away on March 1st after battling an illness.
He was a super nice guy I feel fortunate to have received one of his last hoods. He will be truly missed he had such a passion for automobiles and design.

RIP Eric, Godspeed friend.

OMG !!! That's so sad to hear !! Man what a great guy Eric was. He helped me with my decision to run one of his hoods and even helped me install it and fit it at his shop in S. Fla. What an awesome guy and he surely will be missed! Prayers and blessings to all his family and wife. God bless and RIP Eric....

That is really sad news. I got a hood from him over a year ago. Fantastic craftsmanship. A pleasure to do business with. Gods speed.

I have one of his cowl hoods that sits on top of the cold air inductions intake. Awesome hood but I got turbos now. Anyone want to buy it I am taking offers. Itís pretty much brand new never painted. Piece of artwork.

How much and do you still have the lid that seals to the CAI intake?

Eric sent a strip of weatherstripping along with the hood. You have to remove the plexiglass window in the CAI lid and put the weatherstripping inside of the opening to seal up to the hood. If you can get one of those hoods, they are awesome.

I have the hood and like he said u have to push the glass out yur intake. I think I may have the weather strip if not that is easy to buy. I will think about how much I want for it. I was looking into getting a normal cowl from him so it sucks he has passed. These hoods are so nice no other compares. I will message u back tomorro. For some reason my private message is not working
Thanks

That's awful. I had dropped him a line awhile back asking if he was planning any products for the Gen6 and that I loved the Z-force on my 2010. He thanked me and said he was. This is sad to hear. RIP Eric.
