I recently picked up a hood for my 98 civic, but the fitment was not correct. I believe that they are for a model 01+. Are there any ways that i can find out which model the hood would fit for ? Its a brand new VIS carbon fiber hood. My friend gave it to me and he doesnt know much about cars.

you probably got one for a 99-00 civic, just call up whoever you got it from and tell them about the mistake, they'll fix it for you

well. he got it from his friend.

Id suggest checking out the 96-00 sticky thread on the "differences" between 96-98 and 99-00. You might be able to see how the hood would differ by the pictures.

because if it was 01+ it would be radically different then the hood your 98 has.

i just measured my 99-00 hood and it was 49 by 55 inches and the other hood which i believe to be 01-03 is 50 by 59 inches. please confirm me on this. i doubt its a 03-05 hood but theres a chance.
