Ok, I'm finally getting estimates on my FUBARed hood and side panels. $4,000+ :( But that's what I have insurance for.

Everyone is saying the hood is too damaged to fix and that I need to replace it. Looks like the insurance company will let me get an aftermarket hood if I pay the difference over a stock replacement part. :thumbs:

Question is: Who's got hoods available yet?!? Who's got pictures up? Who can send me info on a pre-release basis? I don't want to buy one without seeing it first. I can sign non-disclosure agreements but I want to see some hoods.

Bet that thing will hang!

i think several folks are working towards getting some hoods ready.. don't know of anyone with one ready yet. When someone does, I'm sure this site will have info before anywhere else. Besides a few more performance upgrades, a functional hood is next on my list ;) Can't wait!

I talked to the claims agent today. I can get an aftermarket hood so long as I cover the difference between it and an OEM replacement. :D

I'm not partial to louvered hoods like the one above. I know it's good for heat extraction but I'm not digging the style. Anyone know of any other places making hoods now or in the very near future?

Thanks,but You're right about the color black. But they all come delivered gray primer. If you go to their site you'll see some different colors from other GTO owners.
