having a bad week

Hello every one,I am new to this forum.I have a 68 camaro 427 that
I have had for 27 years and recently puchased a 70 1/2 camaro 4 link , tubbed, with anew 498 bbc which dyno'd out 710hp on pump gas. I just odered in 2 brand new centerline auto drag wheels 15x14 to find one bent right out of the box[ cost $760]. Also ordered a new glasstek 6in cowl bolt on hood that
doesn' t even clear my radiator cap, but factory hood did[ cost 680$ after shipping]. It,s been a long week

Re: having a bad week

Welcome.
Hot rodding is all about one thing after the other,meeting those challenges and coming out the other side. I feel your pain. Been there.
And it seems, nowadays getting crappy service and broken and no-fitting parts is becoming more the norm. Or maybe my karma just sucks.
