    I think the OE style Firebird/Formula/TransAm hoods are metal.
    The WS6 hoods may be fiberglass or other type of product that is NOT metal.

    What do you have? How heavy is it? Can't you tell by tapping on it?
    Get a magnet & a towel. Try it, ...

    But why, ..., Why in the hell would you want to powder-coat the hood?!?
    And by 'Lids', I imagine you are rerferring to the 'lids' over the headlights?!?

    WS6 hoods are fiberglass. I don't think powdercoating is a good solution though, maybe keep your distance behind the person infront of you on the highway....

    Chipped paint is unavoidable..

    Especially if it's a DD..

    You can minimize the damage by not following the person in front of you too closely, but you'll still get some chips reguardless..
