Where can I get a hood cheap? Hit and run

Some A-hole in an F-150 truck backs into my parked car and takes off while I'm dining inside a restaurant. The video cameras were just out of site of the collision and did not catch the actual the area of impact nor the license plate. You can see the guy backing up on camera. Pause for the "oh ****" moment, then take off. So I'm stuck with the cost of the damage.

I'm going to need a hood and was wondering if you guys have any recommended sources or brand names...etc. I'm in Ct and looking to spend the LEAST amount of money for a reliable hood. So any suggestions would help. Thanks!

I know of a guy in Connecticut that has a cf hood for sale. Although I always suggest hoodpins with a cf hood - he's asking $275 if i'm not mistaken.

Go to a junkyard. . . guy I know just picked up an OEM hood in perfect condition on the lowwww. You'll probably have to get it repainted though.

Maybe a junkyard? I second the hoodpins with CF hood I've seen it happen when the CF hood flies up and smashes the windshield.

I don't understand, you can't use the regular hood latch with a cf hood?

You can. Most people do.


But for that extra security to secure it - it's suggested. At highway speeds, you will encounter what is called "speed wobble" - where your hood will wobble side to side due to it weighing next to nothing.

I've only seen 2 cars ever have the latch fail - causing the hood to smash into the windshield.

I just installed pins on my hood;
