Estimate on Fixing the hood

If you where at the meet in chicago you will know what my hood looked like. I would post a pic but my camera is not working. it had a tool box fall on it and left some minor dents is the best way to explain how bad it is.

Anyway I finally went to see what it would take to redo my hood. I went to the Local Dodge collision center in town and they gave me a estimate of $105 for the paint material, $105 for the parts, and $281 for the labor. That is a grand total of $407. I want to know if you think I can get a better rate somewhere else or should I buy a hood the same color from salvage. I was looking at some of the hoods at car-parts.com and they are priced 200 and bellow. Let me know what you think :alien: .

Silver 1997 Intrepid 3.5
Silver 2000 Intrepid ES 3.2
Dark Kaki Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7
Red 1986 Camaro IROC 5.7

Sounds like it's time for a custom Carbon Fibre Ram-Air hood!!! No, seriously.....I really want one and my hood isn't even damaged!

Maybe some HEMI stickers also? Don't forget the red paint for the dash.

/me wants Adaptabl to buy a Chevrolet Cavalier VL and go do something more useful with his time like go over to www.Jbody.org and talk about how great the plastic trim is! Seriously, you don't like Intrepids so GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE! fucktard!

Yeah, on second thought, picking up a hood from a salvage yard would be a lot more cost efficient. Sorry, I got a little excited when I saw the hood thread!

That was the fastest subject change I have seen. We are talking about my car and on the next post we are talking about avenger getting a hood. Have you found out about the carbon fiber at all rob? I would also like to know who exactly are you calling a fucktard???

I wish I could get the camera to work. Maybe I will take it to someone elses house and post a pic. The camera will not work right on my computer now.

Yeah, i picked up a clean hood from a salvage yard for $175 a couple years ago. Add some paint to that and you'll still be way under what they wanna charge you.
