    You can get an SS hood from RKSport for $600. I don't know what the quality is like, but I'm sure someone on here does.

    Cool Check out SLP.com

    They used to sell the SS hoods there and grill, the hoods are around 600. and the grills about 50. I was able to get one off Ebay from a Chevy dealer in Texas a couple of years ago...

    sorry SLPonline.com

    try and find one somewhat local COLOR MATCHING and pick it up
    it will look 100% factory since SLP painted the hoods & spoilers seperate from the car so the color is always off... also no "orange peel" in the paint

    used one in good condition off a ledgit SS should be from 400-900 depending on the condition & saves you $$$ for paint later

    IMO either get one off a real SS or spend the $$$ & get it from SLP
    aftermarket ones (RK/VFN etc etc etc) are not as exact for fitment & you'll end up spending the extra money in having the body shop have it fit correctly with clearence & lines

    do it once, do it right

    quality usually isnt the issue, proper fitment with good lines though

    ss hood

    thanks for the advice. I checked slp, it seems they might have the best fit. i'll probably go with them. unless a good deal on an actual gm hood falls in my lap.
