Hoods and Trunks are made from 100% ISO-certified, Grade-A carbon fiber material. All VIS Carbon Fiber Hoods and Trunks are manufactured using a two-part construction design. The top layer is composed of carbon fiber material bonded to the hood surface with high-grade epoxy resin, and finished with an ultra-clear (Poly Shield), UV-protective polyurethane coating for a high gloss finish. A one-piece, smooth underside shell is fused to the top layer enhancing the product's structural integrity. The edges are smoothed by hands to insure good quality finish all around. In 2014, we further improved on this manufacturing process by introducing the Vacuum Infusion Process (V.I.P.), which utilizes a single-mold vacuum to produce parts that are 10-20% lighter than before while improving durability. We are transitioning our full spectrum of carbon parts to use the VIP process so that our customers can enjoy these improved products without incurring a huge cost increase.
All VIS Carbon Fiber Hoods and Trunks come with a VIS badge of authenticity. Please be sure to look for the badge when purchasing. Due to the unknown nature of the intended uses of these products, hood pins are required. These products are intended for off-road use only, unless your local and state laws state otherwise.
We guarantee that the sold goods will be free of material defects for a period of twelve months from the date of delivery.The time period of warranty starts with the date of delivery of the goods.This period is a term of limitation and also applies to claims for consequential damages for defects provided no claims from tortious acts have been awarded.
Our liability for goods proven to be defective within the warranty period is limited to repair or replacement. In no case shall we be liable for incidental or consequential damages. If replacement goods also prove materially defective, the customer shall have the right to withdraw from the contract. The customer’s rights under this warranty are limited to material, non-minor defects. In no event shall the customer be entitled to reduce the contract price.
A customer electing to withdraw from the contract after demonstrating a material defect with replacement goods as provided for above waives all rights to claim damages in tort or contract beyond the return of the contract price.
In the event that a customer elects not to withdraw from the contract but rather to seek damages for a failure of performance on our part, the damages to which the customer is entitled shall be no greater than the difference between the value of the defective goods and the purchase price of the goods, unless our failure of performance is caused by our intentional acts. A customer seeking damages rather than withdrawing from the contract shall retain the goods if it is commercially reasonable for the customer to do so.
Our product descriptions are only general descriptions. Any public statement and recommendation is no description of the specific aspects and characteristics of the specific products that are the subject of the contract.
The customer shall only have the right to withdraw from the contract to the extent that we have failed to cure the proven defect or provide a replacement within a reasonable period fixed for cure. The customer shall further have the right to withdraw from the contract to the extent that it is not commercially reasonable for the customer to accept cure as an effective remedy.
