I was parked a work when I clocked out and went to my car l noticed some Jack-a$$ hit my car :pissed: now my hood has a dent and it is out of alignment. I thought about getting it fixed, but i think it might be best to just get a new hood. what do you guys think? does any one have any ideas on how much a new hood costs?

Your insurance should cover this, right? I'd think that paying your deductible would be much cheaper than you going out on your own and getting a hood, painting and installing it. A new hood+paint+install is going to cost you.

Yeah...get a couple of estimates and contact your insurance company.

The hood alone costs around $450. Gaskets, seals, clips, hinges, and other assorted parts, if needed, will cost another $400. Expect to pay an additional $200 to $400 for installation and painting.

If the paint is still intact, you might want to pay a visit to Dent Wizard before investing in a new hood. They might be able to repair it for less than $100.

they range from $400-$1500.

If you are looking for a JDM hood, send me a PM, and I could hook you up.
