First let me take the time to explain that I can afford to pay full price for the hood and could order 1 today, but I decided to help out everyone and create a group buy for all the surrounding Dakota sites I post at hoping to save everyone some money, and it being tax return time should make it easier for a few to jump in on the GB and get a deal.

Now lets get down to business!

The hood is made by "Moore Performance Products." Link below

Group buy code is "dfwGB2011" input this code in the Comments or Questions box when checking out, Graham will adjust the pricing, along with shipping (if you have a buddy and have 2 hoods going to the same place let him know in the comments box so he can adjust each persons shipping price)

Moore Performance Products - Official website!

(you will use this website to submit your order, with Group Buy Code, and other information in the "Comments or Questions" box during checkout.)

Hi Chris,

All your group has to do is add the Group buy code "dfwGB2011" in the comments box, I
will alter the final price at this end and email back the revised total,
since our online store software will not recognize any alterations to the
order form when they fill it out.

Thanks for working out the details with me!

Graham @Moore Performance Products.

Below are some photos of the hood. With various options pictured.

Hood installed and painted.

Heat extractor option (under hood view)

Heat extractor view (rear view) and open element intake option. (under view)

Under-hood view with Conical/K&N option.

Default Grill Mesh Style (If you do not choose Street Scene Inserts)

Graham is the owner and is willing to work out a deal with everyone in this group buy, once the minimum number of people confirm 100% to buying a hood he will release a discount code that only this GB can use.

As of right now the discounted group buy prices are listed below. (Optional SS Inserts is N/A until Street Scene contacts Graham back.)

Hood Pricing
*SRT Hood WITHOUT heat extractors:
--SRT Hood....................$545.00
--Optional "SS" Grill Insert....N/A

*SRT Hood WITH heat extractors:
--SRT Hood....................$595.00
--Optional "SS" Grill Insert....N/A

Freight Discount
*Freight shipping is required due to large object. Graham can ship 2 hoods at once allowing two people that live near one another to split the cost of shipping. Having it shipped to a commercial address will save you $85. Otherwise the fee to have the hoods shipped to a residential address is an additional $85 to the shipping quote.

Shipping Info
*Finding a shipping buddy in your local area will help tons in shipping costs, If you do have a shipping buddy then put this information in the comment box when submitting the order. Let Graham know the address to ship your hood, and he will charge each person 50% shipping.

*He does ship to Canada and can also have it shipped to a border address so you can come pick it up in the states (if you choose to)

*For a quote on shipping I will need to know the address or zipcode and if it's commercial or residential.

*Graham said that a local pick-up can be arranged if needed. The address to his shop is: 3612 US 19, Marble, NC, 28905-8409.

*First ordered/first shipped, normally they can get a hood delivered in about two weeks but this will depend on how busy they are and how far the hood has to travel, he will advise customers on expected delivery time at the time of ordering.

Street Scene "SS" Grill Insert Option(s)
*Graham is contacting Street Scene to find out if he can buy material in bulk and install it in the hoods for the people that CHOOSE to have it. If you don't want it you don't have to buy it. If you do want it a small fee will be added to cover the cost of the material.

*If he is able to get the material, 3 finishes will be offered.
Brushed Aluminum, Black Chrome, and Chrome.

*If you want "SS" Inserts please let me know what type of finish you want. This will allow me to give graham a estimate on how much to order "if" he can get the mesh.

*If you already have a section of material you want used for the grill mesh you would need to mail it to "Moore Performance Products" marked ATTN GRAHAM, and tape your name to the section, He will match
your info to your order sheet and email a confirmation.

Finalizing your order!
Before submitting your order using his website. Please make sure you choose the correct options you want with your hood. Options are below. Please read and choose what applies to you.

Also make sure to use the Comment box to include the GB Code, and any other info he may need. IE: 2 hoods going to one address, supercharger info, ect.

1. Do you want heat extractors on your hood? Yes or No?

2. What color of decals do you want? (Comes free with hood) Red, Yellow, Silver, Black, Chrome?

3. Do you want your hood to work with a Cold air intake setup or the stock airbox? If so choose the "Yes, I have a K&N or conical type filter" This will allow the air to flow to the passenger side engine bay.

4. Do you want your hood to work with an open element/round type filter that sits on-top of the throttle body? If so choose the "No, I do not have a conical type filter" This will allow the air to come directly through the front.

5. Do you have a supercharger? If so use the comment box to let Graham know what type of system you have and if you need the hood to fit around it.

6. Do you have an underhood light? Yes or No, this will let Graham know if he needs to drill the mounting spots for the stock light location.

Q1. Everyone wants to know the prices of the hood with a bulk discount or whatever you can put together for them.

--A1. In discussing the discount issue we settled on a straight $50 discount on regular hoods OR a $75 discount on Heat Extractor hoods, that way a
customer purchasing a more expensive hood will get a bigger discount. There is no fair way to tier a discount but I suggested a 10 hood minimum
to get this price.

Q2. Price of shipping the hoods, can you stack hoods together to save on shipping, rough estimate of price across country?

--A2. Shipping quotes would need a destination zip code, we can ship 2 hoods for only a $20 price increase, so you can save a lot of $$$ combining a shipment, there is an $85 additional charge for shipping to a residence so please try and find a business to ship to! I will be glad to get a freight quote if we get a zip code.

Q3. A couple of guys want to know if you ship to Canada, if so how much you think that's going to cost, or can they pick it up at the border?

--A3. We can/do ship to Canada, some customers send their hood to a location in the U.S. and come over the border to save the import duties and other fees, if this is not an option we can get a quote from FedEx Freight International, and estimate the fees and GST, the actual freight cost is comparable with sending it somewhere in the U.S.

Q4. Options for hoods if bought in bulk, as in can people mix and match options, or do they all have to be the same?

--A4. The options can/will be whatever someone decides on, there will not be any extra charges for altering their hood, only if they wanted the Heat Extractors will there be a price increase.

Q5. A lot of people want the "street scene" style of grill, is this possible for you to get a hold of or do we need to buy our own and supply it to you?
If you can get the SS style grill inserts what would be the fee?

--A5. If a customer wanted a particular material in their hood opening apart from what we offer then they would have to supply the material themselves........I am contacting Street Scene to see if they offer a section of material we can use for several openings etc, if we can get this then we can divide the cost between several people, I'll keep you posted.

Q6. If you can get SS grill inserts can they choose which finish they want on the grill?

--A6. If we can get the Street Scene material the popular styles would be brushed aluminum, chrome and black chrome, there may be a minimum number of each if we order a batch of a particular mesh.

Q7. What does the stock mesh you use look like, and does it come in different finishes? What type of grill mesh do you have access to? Photos help if you have them.

--A7. I have attached a photo of the stock material, it is a half-inch expanded aluminum with a satin type finish. (See photo in #1 post, or end of this post)

Q8. Quality of hoods? Some member complained that his old hood didn't line up correctly ( photo of customers hood attached.). Another member had problems with the hood cracking by the hinges over time. Are the locations you mount the hood reinforced with steel plates?

--A8. All mounting points are reinforced with steel plates, I have not heard of issues with cracking etc, we have been selling this hood for seven years now and have a good reputation for producing a quality hood, anyone with issues concerning their hood should call us so we can correct them.

Q9. If the group buy goes through and someone receives a wrong hood, or a damaged hood, what options do they have to send the hood back or have it repaired?

--A9. If a hood is received damaged it will be the responsibility of the freight carrier to make it good, either by paying for the repair or replacing the hood, it is such a rare occurrence that it should not be a concern.

Q10. If a hood does happen to not fit correctly, what options does the customer have?

--A10. We pride ourselves on making a quality product, it there is an issue with our hood we will make every effort to make it right in a manner that is fair and honest.

Q11. When the group buy is finalized and all the details are worked out and we come upon a decision. What type of payments do you accept? Paypal, CreditCard, DebitCard, Checks, Money Orders?

--A11. We accept Credit/Debit cards, checks and Money orders, with the last two methods there will be a clearance period.

Q12. Say we do get around 10-20+ people buying the hoods, what would be the turn around time for having the hoods made and when would we need to pay?

--A12. We think the fairest method would be first ordered/first shipped, normally we can get a hood delivered in about two weeks but this will depend on how busy we are and how far the hood has to travel, we will advise customers on expected delivery time at the time of ordering.
Here is the next batch of questions.

Q1. If we can get together more then 10 hoods, say maybe 15+ or 20+, 30+ would there be any increase in discount as the number rises by increments of say 5x, 10 being the minimum. Many people have shown interest in the hood (about 30x and more popping in daily), and I think more people will jump on when they see discounts for larger bulk orders. I'm not trying to be greedy just trying to figure out all my options and what it would take to get these guys the best deal they can get, without making you suffer. I just figured the materials used to make these hoods would be cheaper if bought in bulk, while lowering the costs to make the hoods gives everyone a better price while you still gain the same amount of profit from the sales, but I could be wrong.

--A1. With the discount situation we discussed in the previous email, we do not get any kind of extra price break for purchasing larger quantities of
material, it costs the same if we order 5 gallons or 55 gallons, in fact our hoods are the same price as they were 10 years ago back when we started. We had 3 price increases in 2010, 4 in 2009 and so on, so our profit margin drops every year! We feel it is worth it to continue to make our products here in the U.S.A. instead of Mexico or China like some other companies, in fact we refuse to even purchase Chinese materials like mat and resin for our hoods because it is low quality. ( Sorry to ramble on! )

Q2. When you ship 2 hoods together how will the customers be charged for shipping?

--A2. If we ship 2 hoods to the same location we can split the shipping
between the two customers, depending on their method of payment, we'll
figure out the total cost for them and bill each person half...no problem.

Q3. When everyone gives me all the information on what they want option wise on the hoods along with the other shipping info. What do I need to do with it? Should I send you all the information to you? Basically what I'm asking is what would be the best and most accurate way of charging everyone correctly and shipping the correct hoods to the correct address.

--A3. I would strongly suggest that when we get to that stage you have the buyers purchase their hoods online to make sure they have all their info
correct and the payment info is secure, ( our site splits their info in two packets so even if someone hacks one set they only have 8 card numbers! We will make up a keyword they can add to their order page so the discount can be applied, something in the comments box or such, if there are 2 hoods going to 1 location they need to mention that fact in the comments box.

Q4. Local pickup a few of these guys live close to your business establishment, can they pick the hood up from your shop?

--A4. A local pick-up can be arranged if needed but freight is normally less
than the gas they burn to get here!

Q5. So far on the Street Scene Inserts I would say it brakes down like this; 75% brushed aluminum, 20% Black Chrome, 5% Chrome. Some people have yet to decide what they want. The faster we can figure out if you can supply the SS inserts (easiest way on the sake of keeping things simple in the GB) the better.

--A5. I have not heard from Street Scene yet, I'll keep you posted on that

Q6. Some members already have a piece of SS insert they can send you, what info do they need to include when sending the insert to make sure its put on the correct hood?

--A6. If they already have a section of material they would need to mail it
to us marked ATTN GRAHAM, and tape their name to the section, I will match
their info to their order sheet and email a confirmation.

Q7. Any other info you can shed on this to help me would be great. What have you done on your past Group Buys to allow them to succeeded smoothly.

--A7. This is how we have managed Group buys in the past and it worked out fine, I am a big fan of keeping things simple!
Reserved for future questions.
xbxjunkie still in on this?
yep....i'm down
Do you guys want to split shipping? And are you guys 100% sure you will buy the hood when the time comes?
Ill add you guys as Confirmed buyers, Ill need the Zip code the hoods are going to, and ill also need both of your names, along with everyone else that confirms to ordering a hood. This info will be sent to Graham when we are ready to order the hoods.
11. Madmike05 - ss black chrome, NY, Commercial
19. Logikfive - NY Commercial or Residential

both of those people live in NY... contact them and see if they want to split shipping.
well im in either way.i want 1 with heat extracter & ss grill.just waiting on shipping qoute
Did you find someone to buddy up with? If so who? I need to add them to the list. I found my buddy. So all we need is 3 more for the first batch to be sent out.

99408kotar/t wants to know if you want to split shipping with him, He is in IN. Kinda close to NY.
king said he can get these shipped to a business in NNJ, which is cool for me. i have a body shop that can prep and paint it for me since it's close by him anyway. just let me know when you need the money and if king is still in, lets git er done....
Would you like to split shipping with Special_ed, he is near you, but you guys will have to figure out who wants to receive the hoods.
List has been updated, check for people that are looking for buddies.
If you guy's can call graham and get info on shipping that would save me a lot of time, 120 doesn't seem to bad, its about the same for Texas, so i'm guessing the rest of the area around him is cheaper if not the same.

We are really close to hitting the 10x people we need to make the first batch. It would be nice if you guy's would look over the list and maybe PM people to ask if they want to split shipping. Most of the people on the list are either from Dakota-durango.com or DakotaRT.com not much from the other sites, but if you cant find them let me know and ill contact them.

A guy on customdakotas.com just said he is down and lives in Southern TX, by Galveston.
Ok, ill send Graham a email, letting him know some people are ready to buy now, and we pretty much have close to 10 confirmed, I'll also ask him about the SS Insert info and if he has heard anything back from them.
I sent an email to him. Haven't heard back yet.

I got an email back today.

I have to ok the group guy code with graham and once its ok'd by me we will be able to buy directly from his site using the code to get the discount.

Once i give the ok to start ordering from that day EVERYONE will have a 2 (two) month period to save and order the hood. Once the 2 months is up from the start date the code will be deactivated and all discounts will stop.

Graham is in the process of setting up an account with Street Scene to order the mesh for the inserts. He did not give me a estimate on price if you order a hood with SS inserts, but he will be able to get it.

Everyone that is ready to buy now, please let me know, and once the code is activated ill let you guys know the code to go ahead and order. I'm ready to order mine, just got to see when my buddy wants to order his.
I sent him the Email back with the OK to enable the GB code. Once i get verification it has been activated ill post the code on all my threads, So when you buy the hood you know what code to use.

Thank you everyone for staying prompt, I'm not 100% sure when Graham will have his hands on the SS mesh, but he should be getting it. This might cause a delay on some people's hoods that want the SS mesh.

As for everything else, it seems to be moving along great. Once I get an email back, everyone will be able to put in your orders through his site for 2 months!
Group buy code is "dfwGB2011" input this code in the Comments or Questions box when checking out, Graham will adjust the pricing, along with shipping (if you have a buddy and have 2 hoods going to the same place let him know in the comments box so he can adjust each persons shipping price)

Hi Chris,

All your group has to do is add the Group buy code "dfwGB2011" in the comments box, I
will alter the final price at this end and email back the revised total,
since our online store software will not recognize any alterations to the
order form when they fill it out.

Thanks for working out the details with me!

Graham @Moore Performance Products.
I just talked to him, he sent an email that said he has had 2 people buy so far from the group buy. He did not give names, he will look over your order and send you an email with the final price, if you have any questions call or email him. He is very busy with this group buy and trying to get with SS about the inserts, along with his normal business.

He opened a business account with SS to purchase inserts for the hoods, but SS is taking forever to get back with him and verify his account ect...

It might be easier to just find an ss insert you want and purchase it and sell the other peices off to other people looking for inserts, because he or I does not know how long SS is going to take.

everyone has 2 months to order from the day i posted the group buy code...

Chad, cut the guy some slack? Have you ever ran your own business before? I have, and still am, small business owners don't have secretaries and other people to help them. Side vendors like him and any other small vendor that we buy our parts through will sometimes take awhile to get back due to the fact they are very busy...

Everyone will get there hood, and everyone will get the discount as long as you put the discount code in the comments box, and let him know about shipping arrangements. If you want to call him and make sure he got the order or email feel free. It does not hurt to make sure someone got it. Don't be lazy and assume.

Thanks guys.

Btw Bob and I will be ordering our hoods around the 25th of this month. I wanted to put our orders in together to make things simple for graham. We will both be sending our own ss inserts to him also and it will be shipped to a business.

Please read the 1st post. All Q&A should be there. This GB will be open for 2 months from the day I posted the GB code. Everyone has a little over 1 more month to put the orders in.
He is getting the orders he told me, so everyone that got a confirmation number the order went through.

1st orders will be made/shipped first. If you left special instructions in the comment box about group shipping or SS inserts it will take longer. If you did not find your own ss insert to send him, because SS is taking to long to get back with him about this account, also if you did group shipping both hoods will have to be made and shipped at the same time, so if your buddy didn't order the same time you did it might take longer, as they are building them as they get the orders.

As far as billed price, i have not heard anything about that but more then likely when shipped you will be charged since the freight shipping changed state from state, so he can not bill you until he ships the hood. If you have questions call him or email him.
Graham account with SS has been activated. If you want SS tell me or let him know so he can figure out what it would cost to order the mesh, and how much extra it will cost. Or buy your own piece and ship it to him.

He is getting the parts/mats together and making our hoods right now.

All is going well. When the hoods start to ship you will get an invoice for final charge including the discount and freight shipping.

I just talked to Graham, he has only confirmed 6 orders from our group which I think is incorrect...

If you put in an order with graham put your name here so I can send him an email to verify the payment/info went through correctly.

As of right now this is who is on the list of orders.

1.Chris Henderson (Me)
2.Milton Stacy,
3.Kevin Peacock,
4.Tony Burrows,
5.Jeremy Burdick
6.Anthony Becker
