Which aftermarket hood?

I'm looking for a bolt on cowl hood for my car. eBay has a company that sells hoods called duraflex. I've never heard of them. Does anyone know if they are any good?

Well Duraflex itself is a material used for bumpers and side skirts but no way in hell it would be for a hood.

I've never heard of a company named that and I am going to give you a piece of advice. NEVER skimp or try to save money buying a cheap hood. A cheap hood has a very good chance of flying up on you on the highway and if that happens the odds of a wreck are very high.

There are only a few companies I would trust to buy a hood from.

-Cervinis (this is the only company I use)

There are a few others but these guys are the ones off the top of my head.

You are going to spend a good $400-$600 for a quality hood plus shipping and then whatever it costs to paint it. That's just the reality of it. If you don't have the $$$ for that, then leave the stock hood because a cheap hood is just putting yourself and anyone else in the car or around you on the road literally in a life threatening situation.

Edit: I just saw you are from Philly, get on the Cervinis website and see what you like and then go drive and pick one up. Our location is easily within driving distance so you don't have to pay $150+ in freight. If you can arrange with them to buy online and have an out of state address and pick it up later you might be able to work something out where you don't pay tax either. Or see if they'll knock off the tax if you pay cash.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
