    Are you referring to this:



    A lot of people refer to it as the Manta stripe as well.

    Yes sir I am. Is it hard for a body shop to paint just that part of the hood? Or do they have to sand the down the entire hood and repaint the whole hood?

    Another question I have is about the Berger panel, is it difficult as well to have painted?

    The Berger panel is an easy do-it-yourself project, to keep your sanity, buy a spare panel for $20 from a salvage yard or ebay.

    The Manta stripe really varies, a lot of shops will only paint the main portion, and not the pinstripes running along the sides of the raised portion. Another alternative is buying a decal for it online, and having it professionally applied and clearcoated in. Most shops will paint for $300, and decal/clearcoat for $150. I'd suggest finding a good shop and having it painted, but make sure you're specific on what you want! This is after all the hood of your car.

    Its not hard, the whole hood doesn't need to be sanded and repainted. They just tape around the area that is going to be painted I believe.

    Prowler has your question on the Berger panel covered as well
