Shipped would have been closer to $800 from my guy, found this one local, guy ordered it and customer never picked it up. Got it for $450.
Quality seems good, I mean its not OEM, but it'll do the trick!

Really huh? That's insane! Lucky you found one local. Hopefully it lines up well.

Hood is at the body shop. Going to swing by the car tonight and match which of the 7 "Pewter" colour variations match it. Also going to bring them my gas door to be safe.

Dude that looks sweet! I'm a tad jealous, lol! Was really hoping to grab that SS hood/spoiler from your guy but you said the hood alone was 800 bucks?

Ya man so I wasn't even going to do it. With shipping duty and tax and exchange it was too much. Then I found this. All in painted I'm into this hood for $460. Can't argue that and she came out nice.

Going to let it fully cure over weekend at their shop, then bring it home and keep it in the basement until spring..which seems so long away. I guess thats good considering I still have a LQ4 that needs to get finished and in between the fenders before then

Sounds like a plan. Happen to have a spare berger panel anywhere by chance?

On the pewter I think I wanna whistler mod, with my dark markers, should look clean.

I realized I never put any of my photos from the summer in here, this was it as it was last summer. Cant wait to get my rims on, tinted, lowered with that hood, going to look so much nicer!

Thanks man, ya I used Krylon Satin Black plastic paint. Worked perfect. I agree, those wheels ('93-99) appear very 90's to me, not that mines the prettiest wheel to be installed, just appear more modern.

Hood is home, waxed and covered. Came out fantastic.






So I have my :
-Hood
-Rims
-Dark Markers
All stored away. Need to get a set of OE headlights to whisper mod, and maybe a nice shifter etc.. but I think my winter part collecting is near complete!

Got some headlights super cheap on the weekend, although lens' were crazy hazed. I have so far performed the Whistler Mod, done a sanding/polishing on the lens (wasnt happy with it), so I have removed and filed off the "nipples" on the lens, and brough them to work for a detailer using 3M products to do a final restore on them.

Final picks to be up when lens' are complete, here they are so far.
