    That is just a sweet hood. Say what you want but hands down there in nothing else out there that has the ability to move that much air out of the engine bay. Best of both worlds....function & style. You just had to post pic's didn't ya......not fair.lol

    Re: D3 Cadillac - shocked

    I agree, looks like a sweet design but a great design means squat if they can't get you the product in a reasonable amount of time and without jumping through hoops. Maybe their business is just growing and they need time to adjust staffing etc. I'll cut them a break and say they messed up and at least are dealing with it now. I think we probably also need to consider those who have had good experiences with D3. They won't be as quick to post as human nature is to post when upset rather than happy with a vendor.

    sure that hood is great until a real world situation make it as useless as a tit on a bull. a banker will give you an umbrella when the sun is shining, but will take it back the second it starts raining. if you had that hood in a heavy rain/sleet situation (parked or in motion) on a hot motor/operating temp, would they cover any damage done, (cracked intake or head) or are they only selling them to folks in warm climates?

    Actually I am glad you brought that up. Our hoods come with an optional drip tray (yes that too is made of real C/F). You can bolt that in place in the vent that you want to drive your vehicle in inclement weather. It is designed to collect the water and dump it in front of the motor keeping it off of the hot engine components. This tray comes with all hood orders if required at no additional charge.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Design

    As earthquakes, rock slides, volcano eruptions, hailstorms, thunder, snow, sleet, & weather anomalies are an act of God and GM / Cadillac are not accountable for issues, neither should D3 be.

    Re: D3 Cadillac - shocked

    what if your an atheist? and with the navy admitting last week to using H.A.A.R.P. for weather modification. (IE: sandy snow storm) an "act of god" no longer applies.(google: ho chi minh trail weather modification) if d3 is putting big openings in the hood then god damn it i want consideration for their product or a disclaimer. =]~

    I'm sure that they will send you 1.
    I'm sure that the custom shops years back were doing disclaimers.
    Even on hood louvers.

    I'm not sure vendors warrant customer stupidity.

    stupidity? is that why d3 responded to this post with concern and a solution? if my obvious point was stupidity then they would never have considered making the protector plate. please refrain from talking to hear yourself talk. thanks for your understanding in this matter.

    LOL Re-read your post. If you can't figure out that the hood might be a liability in inclement weather, as are most vented hoods, then you shouldn't even be driving car. There are some dumb posts in this thread but yours was right over the top. Bravo.

    The fact that D3 has thought of a solution, doesn't make the stupidity of your rhetorical question any less glaring.
