The closest place that has a hood is an hour away. They have it for $200. They also have the bumper for $200.

The dealer wants $800+ for the new hood. (Painted, Installed)
I didn't even ask about the bumper, I know it's $235.

My body guy wants $500 to paint everything and install it all. So I will be out $900 and I got off easy. Hopefully my work is going to pick up the tab.

$900 for parts and paint isn't horrible..., i've seen a LOT worse :)

but i like how "some how" your hood got messed up...oh wait, yeah, you were rear-ended. the way you said that made me lmao :D

Correction...he rear-ended someone.

Just remember that if they only paint the hood and the bumper, it's not going to match the rest of the car...they'll need to color match and blend, and that's going to cost more!

They will do all of that for me! This guy is the best auto body guy in the area.

The dealer was going to charge me "Somwhere over $800" for JUST the hood. (Parts and paint)

He is charging me $500 to install and paint everything. ( I have to get parts)

I believe the cowl hoods are on group buy now, or was that only for the G1,2, and 3

I know the dates were extended.
