Awesome. I was the first one to buy one. I originally called it "Norm's Conservative Hood". I love mine and it gives the car a really aggressive look. Enjoy!

Just to add I ordered a set of fenders from Norm and did not have them painted I was told 4 weeks and got them in 4 weeks so maybe that's the hang up ? My painter was very impressed with the fit and finish of the fenders which in the end saved me some money due to limited prep time and yes I'm extremely happy with them .

Ouch. We had ours inspected and, yup, we're gonna need a new roof. We're looking a Solar City/Tesla for one of their solar roofs. Supposed to come out next month.

We got a cruise up to Paris later this month. Come play.

Cruise sounds fun! When my car is back in one piece I'll try and make it to these things.

Update:

Unboxing pics coming. All mounting hardware is there, even handwritten, VERY clear and essential instructions on the parts themselves. Sticky tape pre-installed where necessary(side skirts)...

Never in my life have I handled an aftermarket part (or, indeed, many OEM parts) made with such care, pride and attention to detail. The crate was even more solid than some ikea furniture I've had.

I feel like a jerk for complaining about the wait. Thank you, Norm.

Some weird combination of being in BFE and mobile uploads. I'll fix it later.
