    Hey, I need to replace my bent, dented, bondo'd, and cracked hood and was wondering if anyone has suggestions on where to get a replacement? I'd like a new one but don't know if those are available. Steel or Aluminum would be ok but I don't want fiberglass.

    Thanks, Scott

    What year? I have a split hood in Chicago that needs a home. Be kinda nuts to ship it though.

    No chrome strip. Price depends on whether or not you can pick it up. Actually, it doesn't as i won't ship it anyway. :D

    I dunno. $50?

    You can still get new fj40 hoods from Toyota '69 to '82 hoods I think are the same. Retail is $600 but most Toyota parts department managers will give you a break. There is usually no shipping charge either. Body shops get about 30% off so anything between 15 & 25% off is pretty good. That's alot of money but if you consider all the time and effort and money in fixing a damaged one, well the decision is the size of your wallet.
