    Do you want a factory OEM or a aftermarket. I got mine WS6 styleaftermarket for $270 from Certi Fit. Needed a little prep b4 paint but what fiberglass hood doesn't. Same place most body shops go for parts.
    Here's what mine looked like after I finally painted and mounted it.

    With silver I would recommend having the hood painted and blending into the fenders and re-clearing it all at once for a perfect color match. GM isn't know for great paint jobs. Sometimes 2 of the same color and same year cars will be off just enough that if you swap panels you'll see it. There are actually like 10 or so variations of the Arctic white, I custom blended this to match my self and it's pretty dam close for only painting the hood. takes a good eye to see a difference.

    Hood plus painting supplies set me back about $400 maybe a little more. Lot of glazing putty and 2k primer filler and w/s with 600 for the smoothest pinhole free finish I could get. Using good quality PPG Global BC paint(slightly alter for a more perfect match, mixed it myself), Nason Clear(same finish and shine as dupont half the price). 3M products for the wet sand and buff.

    I'm anal I painted it twice just cause the 1st time I missed a few tiny pinholes and the color was slightly off. Seemed like almost no one noticed but me, but that's all it takes.

    At the Charlotte ,NC Certi fit the hood is$ 282 plus tax. If you have a buddy who paints it's cheap if not try a local small shop for some quotes for just the paint usually if they get you the hood they'll mark up the price to $367 which is retail. Check out the online cat they got TA parts for goos prices.

    Gotta get the grills from WS6store.com since they don't come with the hood.

    Good luck just remember to take time to putty in the pinholes and any little blemishes. Then several coats of 2k primer filler and some wet block sanding and it'll look good. It's all about the prep. with fiberglass hoods. Even the fancy $700 plus hoods need prep.

    i dont' know why, but that hood doesn't look right? Might just be the shadows, but it looks very block-y
