1980 Merc Capri 6" cowl Hood

I'm in need of a 6" cowl hood (fiberglass) for a 1980 Capri. I talked to a company called "Champion" they said they can build me one. was wondering if anyone had any dealings with them? Or if there is another route i might take?

I ordered a hood from Champion once. Lift off, was too narrow, no body lines, had no character, and was very inconsistent in thickness along the edges. NEVER again..

I'd just buy the cowl from Summit or Jegs and put it on your hood. They sell them in several sizes and heights.
