So, I had an extra hood for 15 years that kept haunting me! After 5 different layers of old paint removed, one burnt sander and had to use a grinder, here is what I did. I still have my good hood to switch back!

Just a little playing around, still have the blue hood. Yes that is the Caravan fan swap, after BV8 Meet I had to track one down. Not that many in our local Pick-n-Pull!

I bought the one on my TR7 online from Advance Auto Parts. It was only about $90 I think.
