Default Hood for the 97

Taxes should be in soon and im planning on taking the money I get back and fixing one of the most hated things about my truck. For me its the mis-matched paint on my hood and driver side fender from the accident. I want to get them both painted professionally, but while im at it i'd like to upgrade the hood. Right now I'm looking at this.

This cowl induction hood made for my truck.


Top one.
Anyone have any thoughts on this or a picture of one on a real truck. Also anyone have an idea on how much painting would cost? Thanks in advance

I like the hood! As for cost, shops charge a variety of prices due to what brand of clear coat etc. Best bet is call around and check them out

Thats what I figured. At first I figured about a grand, then someone said $250. IDK. I remember you saying you got a tailgate painted for your truck for $150, iirc. Thanxsss

Ive been eye balling that hood ever since we bought my girlfriend's '94. Theyre going to whack you $125 for shipping.

I know LMC truck has it, and so does ebay. Prolly gonna just say fuck it and order it from LMC truck to be safe if i do get it. I dont want it to rust or something like my aftermarket bumper did after 6 months. Pissed off about that.
