    If you can find OEM, snatch it up. The aftermarket hoods usually require a lot of prep work to make them fit good and finish good.

    2008 Z06 - Velocity Yellow - OEM

    2017 Silverado Z71 5.3 - OEM

    2002 Z06 - Electron Blue Metallic - D1 - E85 - 701 rwhp 687 rwtq **sold**

    I managed to find an OEM Hood off of an 01 SS that matched my Color for only $400.. Just keep your eye on the lookout for one

    GM has stopped selling the OEM hoods new. I beleive you can get them from SLP, However, they are still pricey.

    Go OEM, mine still doesn't fit quite right. You get what you pay for.

    No bigie really. It was slightly to tight on the sides and on the front. Paid 75 to get it fixed. I don't know if I got ripped off or not. But, I don't know anything about working on fiberglass. So I least an experienced shop do it. I'm converting my z into an SS. A spoiler is next. And in early February a paint job is coming. I was thinking all black or something like this http://www.loanstarmotors.com/vehicl...FP22G122139916. I'm planning on dropping some c6 10 spoke rims. All of this will be financed with my remaning scholarship money!
