IMO the info is correct. The difference between the saggy, wrinkly tops 
you see and the nice taut ones is professional installation. I sent out 
my packaway hood because it's darn hard to figure out exactly where to 
glue down the front rail, and it would take eight hands to do it in 
position. I also saw what a botch my buddy made of his installation 
(pulling it back off, cleaning up glue marks, punching new fastener 
holes, patching the old holes). Didn't cost much and it was really worth

Runs great, 
looks particularly bad since some SUV clown backed into it.
If you're near Mountain View, CA,
it's the red one with the silver bootlid.
