It was a 2" instead of a 4" but that was better anyways!!!::nanawrench:
One cowl hood, a set of hood pins and cables, 4 wheel well trim and 2 long pieces that go along the bottom, all for $160.00 with help installing them!!!:nanawrench:

I think it looks pretty cool without painting to match!!!

Question?
I used all my stock henges springs and latches ( no more broken windshields for me!!!)but it seems to bow up a little in the middle, could that be from the springs?:dontknow:

Donny, if it's fiberglass?? Per hardwood (which I installed 3 yrs ago) ""The hoods are stacked end to end before shipping; simply place a towel on each side of the hood with a cement block and let set in the sun for a day or so"" Also got the same answer from a local fiberglass shop. Works... Dale

:dontknow:I have a steel 2" hood, but have heard that you should use weaker springs for fiberglass hoods. I could be wrong, but if I am, I'm sure someone will correct me. But it does look good. :texas::beer:
Is your steel hood for sale?
