I do, I just need to find the infinite time it would take to reprep the molds, buy new resin and cloth, layup the hoods, install all the mounts, etc etc.

Then everyone would want a show quality part for $400, and complain when the resin yellows from UV exposure.

Dickman is doing the body kits. Not sure why he doesn't want to jump on that hood mold for that extra cheddar.

Thanks for the info. Does anyone remember where that article on mix-n-match 240 body panels was written? I thought it was on Matthew Hyde's site but I'm not seeing it there.

Also, online store with no DNS/ ip only - lol - how fast can I send them money??

Thanks

That was spelled out real clearly above. Shipping on a hood would be in this $500-$600 range. That rules out everyone on turbo bricks.

not much more to ship the hood if it's still attached to the car.
