Match the paint, buff, paint and installation.. Originally it was 400 but when he saw the hood and there was some whirls in it and he said there will be a lot of work to paint them..

I'd definitely get another quote, or two. Don't just let this shop do it for more than they originally said they would.

No problem, man. Nice hood, by the way! Are you gonna make the vents a different color, or just have it all match the car?

I don't know if you could get it in there or not. It's worth a shot, or call someone with a truck, and wrap some blankets around it. Maybe you could ask they shop if they're interested in buying the old hood.

I would shop around. I have a trufiber hood also. The first quotes I got was 6 to 7 hundred. I found a small shop that did mine for $350. Do your homework and check out how long a shop has been in business and ask if they have done much with fiberglass with gel coating as it takes special prep. In my case they done a good job.

I got it for 500 but its fine they did a great job and they are installing custom rain guard for the vents and painting the grill silver which is way cooler than not painting it also they put custom nozzle squirters in the back of the hood so it looks clean and functional. Cant wait will pick it up tomorrow.
