I just bought the canomod canopy from helidirect.com on the link below, but there is no skull on the front like the one in the picture, helidirect told me that there is no skull on the canopy, but something isn't adding up, on the canomod website the canopy has the skull on it, am i Getting the run around? Anyone have this canopy?

Its hard to say ... Kinda looks like a skull at first but if you stare at it enough it doesn't. Might just be a weird reflection and the canomod logo over the picture making it look like a skull.

Ya you can sure see the skull on it. The canomod logo doesn't have any effect on the skull that is airbrushed on the windshield. Just my two cents, are they even looking at the same picture? Cuz you can see the skull plain as day.

Ok, here's my take on this. I'm both a professional automotive painter by trade, and also dabble in custom paint work both on high end custom choppers, and also do custom paint on both glass & bleach bottle canopies.
I looked very carefully at the picture in the link. To me I can in fact see what appears to be at least the lower & upper jaw, and nose structure on what appears to be a skull. I can't see what should be the eye socket & or the eye. It would be completely out of praportion if the oval looking area was suposed to be the eye socket. So now I'm thinking it's some sort of wierd reflectios perhaps. But I sumply can't get over the fact that I too think I see what in the picture appears to be at least half or more of a skull airbrushed onto the windshield. I do not think that structure is a reflection. I think it is airbrushed onto the windshield. I think If I were the average person who did not do artwork, and I ordered this canopy based on this picture, I believe that I too would be expecting to see a skull on the windshield.
I really can't help wondering if this picture were developed to be deliberatly lest say ummmm... contriversial, perhaps to encourage more orders? Then it may be ummm.... reasonably deniable that it has a skull, because it's not perfectly clear in the picture, but does have the appearance that it "may" have a skull? I don't know, just thinking "out loud" here.

Just curious, is there a cure for this addiction?

Oh I do have a question. Is the windshield on the canopy you got black overall with a blue "streaky" area airbrushed in the center of it? Or is it blue overall?

Just curious, is there a cure for this addiction?

windshield
i just went to the website and looked at it again, on the one i got, the windshield is all black with a round area of blue about the size of a golf ball in the middle of the windshield, which is totally different from the blue on the one on the website, the blue area there almost encompasses the whole windshield!

If you go to the 3rd straight on picture (hit "next" 2 times) you will see the nose cavity & eye sockets, it is there. Bottom line, if you wanted a skull and they say none of what you ordered has it, send it back and find one that does. Being right won't change that it doesn't have the skull that you want on it.

Canopy is great without skull
For me its about the principle, my money is hard earned, why make it look like one thing and then have it be another?

Didn't realize there were more pics. Going forward a couple of pics, it does look kinda like a skull, but again, there is a glare that blanks most of it out. If it were me buying based on the 3rd pic, I'd say that it's a skull.

there is in fact a skull painted in teh canopy, you can clearly make out the teeth in the lower jaw as well as the eye socket and nose area.

teeth, nose, and eye socket circled in red while entire skull is circled in orange.

Its a skull, unless the photographer is a skeleton and its a reflection of the photographer.

If you can send it back, why would the issue be your hard earned money. Canomod must have changed the design after taking the picture. Sorry for your disappointment, I do understand what you mean.
