    Excellent fit and quality. Don’t forget your arming cap! Arrived with a heavy coat of mystery grease (not a bad thing as it prevented rust, but I wouldn’t recommend wearing before degreasing and re-lubricating with something non-toxic). I degreased with purple ZEP (industrial) in a 5 gallon bucket, scrubbing to agitate and then soaking the hood for about 15-20 minutes. Rubbed off what I could, rinsed with a pressure washer and dried with hair dryer, and finally applied a generous coat of Fluid Film to lubricate and prevent corrosion since FF is non-toxic and non-hazardous. I highly recommend wearing rubber gloves and degreasing in a well-ventilated area.
