    Here is the hood I bought on ebay. I spent more on shipping than I did on the hood itself!!! but you gotta do what ya gotta do. And rest assured I had it shipped via UPS and I did receive it damaged!!!! When I called about collecting on the insurance they told me it was packaged incorrectly and it was the fault of the person who shipped it to me. My argument was: When you receive a package for shipment, and you offer insurance, once you are in possession of the parcel its your baby. however... they feel different. so.... I have about 18 hours into fixing the corners of this hood. (ok thats a little of an exageration more like 8 hrs.) But it did clean up nice on the underneath. Its going to make a fine hood.

    I know th feelin...I done had th innerds outta Rusty and all th chrome off,and th panels off and was getting th job done of removing rust and loose paint...then Th S10 quit and I put th motor back in,th new seats back in and reassembled a bunch of th stuff I had removed without th finishin touches on accountta I had to get a runnin truck on th road...So...It`ll be done again...and this time as I get one thing ready it`ll be prepped fer paint...then move on to th next...
