    MPD hood 2 - What a success! Ended 3/20/2008-- SUCCESS

    We need a minimum order of 5 hoods to get this group buy discount.
    So at one hood a piece we need at least 5 people.

    MPD will go $600 a hood w/free crate packing on this group buy.
    Shipping will be about 123.00 additional to a commercial location.
    Depends how close you are. Mine was like $114.

    ** this does not include the conversion box for your intake.
    I dont believe he makes those anymore as he said it only worked on the early 05's but we can find out what options are available if this is a go.

    At this time this is only for the hood.

    Here is the company info:
    mpd1@iendeavor.com
    http://www.mpd-inc.net
    765-386-6731


    The hoods sell for $695 and the crate fee is usually around $40.
    So $600 w/free crateing is a savings of $135 or over 19% off.

    Last time people dropped out like crazy and it put me in quite a corner
    so this next paragraph is important.

    We need to start a list.
    This list needs to be people who are not on the fence about this but people who want it and have the funds to order it.


    Once we have at least 5 then we set a date to call and order it.
    We have to order around the same day and we can set that date up.
    I will give you the discount instructions if we can meet the minimum
    5 hoods.

    If you are buying one anytime soon or thinking about it get on this wagon while you can. They do not ordinarilly do this.

    Also you do not pay shipping until it arrives. They only ship to businesses
    not homes. Basically hand your body shop the $$ cause they will have to pay the guy who brings it. Like COD.

    Sooo who is in?

    LIST OF PARTICIPANTS:

    2. bluegtp33

    5


    Discuss to your hearts content and post up hood snaps if you like but dont copy and add your name to the list unless you are prepaired to carry this out please.

    The hoods do not come primed or painted. They do have a black gel type coat over the fiberglass though.

    I get nothing out of this and the buyers will be paying and dealing with the
    company. I will, however, say that everyone I know who has this hood loves it but it is quite a bit of $$ when you factor in prep and painting.

    If this goes to a full group buy yall can buy me a beer.

    I did it in stages and actually did all the prep work myself to save $$.

    If you want, they can install metal plates in the hood so you can attach
    quicklifts to this hood. Be sure and set that up with them when ordering.
    Just an idea - as it is possible.

    I had them do it and I installed quicklifts on my MPD. Did it before paint so the brackets are all painted in w/my hood. :P
    You dont want to attempt quicklifts on a fiberglass hood sans the metal plates in the fiberglass for support.

    damn. I wish I knew if we were getting that concept hood or not, or atleast how soon we'd get it. If that were out of the equation, I would be on the list right now.

    This has my interest but I kinda want to know what is going to happen with that other hood. Money is gonna be a little tight for the next month or so. If this could be delayed for about 1-2 months I would be able to go for it then. I would also prbbly need to get a CRAB then right?

    THE TRUTH COMES OUT

    since Pooners said they no longer make the air boxes the only way to get on for a hood is with one of Pooners CRABS

    and he said he wouldnt get anything out of this

    Remember if "the" and "and" are spelled right its not a genuine Ahuhn post


    Dear God, please send clothes to all those poor ladies in Daddy's computer. Amen.

    No one gets the discount and its not an official deal until we get 5+ people to call in orders. Then I contact MPD and those people will get the discount (almost 20% off).

    I dont know how long MPD will allow me to drum up 5 people.
    I just reminded them of the deal we got last time and begged them to do it again. They forgot what is was last time (10% off) and offered me almost $100 off plus free crating...or is it spelled crateing?

    anyway.....Im gonna guess he will prolly give me a couple weeks tops.
    I told him I would get back with him soon.

    Yall wanna wait on the other hood and pass this up is fine with me.
