so how it is drivin a CF hood that don't fit? maybe you want to keep doing that to make more issues worse. whatever is your gripe about the product, the people, etc, you are just making it worse keeping onto it.
you notice that it needs to be in good shape in order to get a refund? yes, if you drive this longer and it gets damaged, you'll end up keeping a CF hood that don't fit for good.
get yourself another hood now and return this CF one. otherwise, you'll get no refund (and a "I told you so")
both vendors are small companies. not corporate btw
