TERMS AND CONDITIONS for Purchase of Carbon Fiber Hood from Maverick Man Inc.
All orders placed with Maverick Man, Inc. (though this website, phone, fax, mail, verbal, or e-mail), directly or in any other way constitute the acknowledgment and
acceptance of all of the conditions listed below:
Warranty and Disclaimer

states. It is the buyer’s responsibility to comply with applicable state
laws. Buyer understands that due to strict U.S. Federal and State safety
crash guidelines, Maverick Man, Inc is not responsible or liable for any
damages or possible injuries incurred upon possible accidents due to
driver error, incorrect installations, bad judgment, or act of nature,
God, Allah, Jehovah, or whomever you believe in. All products are intended
for off-highway uses only, and should be used for their intended purposes

installation, modification, and unusual stress of the products. The buyer
assumes all responsibilities for determining the suitability of the
products. Maverick Man, Inc is not responsible for any damages incurred
either directly or indirectly on the vehicles or operators/passengers
within the vehicles.
All products require professional installation. Buyer understands that
some products may require modifications for correct fitment. Minor
adjustments may be necessary as part of the normal installation process.
All hoods require hood pins for safety reasons. All carbon fiber products
will not sustain any force or weight, for they could be cracked by such
force or weight. Maverick Man, Inc has made an effort to produce all its
aftermarket products to fit the original factory vehicles as closely as
possible. However, some occasional prepping may be necessary for an ideal
fit. The buyer needs to perform these steps to his/her satisfaction before
installation. If the buyer wishes to paint the products, he or she must
pre-fit the parts to the vehicle before painting to ensure proper fit.
There are absolutely no returns on painted products. IF THIS IS A
SUPERCHARGED or TURBO car it is a MUST that you use some kind of insulation
under the hood. However it is also highly suggested and REQUIRED for warranty
that you use insulation on the underside of the hood no matter supercharged,
turbocharged or not. We recommend Termo Shield or Dynamat which are good choices. ALSO DO NOT use a clear bra on any carbon portion of the hood. Clear Bra will NOT let the heat escape thought the carbon and will cause moisture build up and will void any warranty.
Please be sure to care for your new hood. Carbon Fiber is vulnerable to the suns UV rays. It is very important that you use a high UV protectant on your hood. The new ceramic coatings are ideal for that along with any detailer that have high UV content in it. Any extra clear coat on the hood will also help since these hoods are a Gel Coat NOT a clear coat. It is also idea to no leave the hood in the sun for full days, day after day. Think of carbon fiber like your skin. It will get sunburned of you do not care for it correctly. Care on carbon is more then just taking care of paint. Look online for “carbon fiber care” will see a lot of suggestions for it.
Maverick Man, Inc packs all products carefully to prevent damage during

the packaging and the products carefully upon receiving them, then accept

DRIVER NOTE DAMAGES FOR YOU! WRITE IT IN YOURSELF! If it is a
electronic signature and no where to write anything. write in DAMAGED where
you are supposed to sign it. If someone else is signing for it make sure they know
these procedures 100%! Buyer must retain all cartons, packing materials,
and damaged products for the carrier’s damage inspector to inspect. DO NOT
REFUSE SHIPMENT OR RETURN IT WITHOUT APPROVAL from Maverick Man Inc., because the buyer’s right to make a damage claim may be denied. A signed receipt without any notation indemnified the carrier as well as Maverick Man, Inc from any further damage claims. Discovery of damages after a clear delivery becomes the responsibility of the customer.
All damages must be notified to carrier and Maverick Man Carbon Inc.
within 24 hours. In cases of damage with proper notation on receipt, the
carrier will determine whether to pay for repair cost or replacement value
