My experiece with a fiberglass (long) hood was pretty poor. The hood was cut short in the corners and I had to add material to make it look right. Very wavy, too. Peter was nice about it, but returning the hood to have it made right was counterproductive (2 hour drive each way).

One other important point: I haven't seen a single RS rear bumper that I would consider "good". Most seem to have been made from molds that have shrunk over time. Expect gaps between the inner edges of your tail light lenses and bumperettes.

You should expect some work with any fiberglass -- even the best, which are IMHO Shaw and Getty. Ask your favorite Porsche body guru for his epxeriences...
