Clear photos were sent before purchase. Original hood sides beautiful, tops needed work.

Post us when and if you get the hood back.

The issue as I see has nothing to do with the condition of the hood. If he didn't like it then fine- he returns it and gets his money back as you offered . Getting his money back and keeping the goods is just plain wrong and not a straight up way to operate. I hope Ryan has terminated his membership as , in my opinion , we don't need people like him on here - They add nothing to our hobby other than showing us how not to act -Karl

Glad you got it back . . . that was an important milestone in this situation.

I'm not here to defend the guy when he didn't ship it back, but now that he did, I'm hearing a bit of "I sold you a nice hood" type of perspective, when it sounds like it may not have been quite as nice as represented. And you mentioned a price of $550 (not cheap) and it is not inexpensive to ship parts of this size around (on anybody's dime).

I know this is a completely subjective opinion (and everybody has their own), but I'd love to see some good quality pictures of what was sold for the price. Help us understand what this deal really was? Why, because the representations of "the deal" matters to all sides.

How was the hood originally represented and what did the guy actually receive? Please post some pics . . . this will enable us all to form our own opinions.

I've learned over the years - in most cases, the truth tends to be in the middle . . .

Show us what you sold . . .

Good to hear Chuck. And i see he got banned from the barn also. Probably a good idea so he can't do this again.

As previously I don't think the condition of the hood is relevant. If it is not as described then the buyer returns it for a full refund as offered . What you don't do is get a refund and keep the hood - Its the same as selling the hood accepting payment and not sending it- Karl

Again - I agree that the hood should have come back . . . my only point is that shipping can be very expensive for an item like this - and I was just interested in seeing what this hood was all about. He can decide to post pictures or not - and I am glad he got it back. This is one reason it is hard to buy items like this via the internet . . . unless you know the guy you're buying from.

I'd just like to re-iterate my appreciation for how Ryan C. (The Boss) handled this situation from the beginning, especially the eventual "dumping" of this guy who hasn't a clue. None of us could benefit from any association with that kind of mindset. I hope that Chuck sees fit to thank Ryan profusely for saving the bacon. Is this a cool place, or what? DD

Ryan, The hood was returned to me! I want to thank you and everyone that posted! I truly appreciate it! We are all in this hobby to have fun and help each other with knowledge and to find parts we need. Many great people out there!
