So i was involved in a minor accident with my balt. The insurance will sent $400 to change the hood. I wanna take this opportunity and put like a fiber glass or carbon fiber... anything but an OEM.... i have been checking the websides around but with the S&H comes to more than $500. Please guys help me find a and aftermarket nice HOOD for no more than maybe $450. I really been looking around everywhere. I could pick it up from NJ PA or NY... if thats the case

Unless you can find a used fiberglass or CF hood I don't think you're going to find one for less than $450 new, especially if you have to pay taxes on it too...and then you'll have to get it painted.

I found my cf hood on ebay for $625. My insurance gave me $400 and the body shop gave me another $100 for my hood so I only ended up paying $125 + shipping for my cf hood. Gotta love full coverage

Just remember, If its not carbon fiber you will have to have it painted. And on average, just to get it painted is 300-400 bucks. I paid about 500 for my fiberglass hood shipped + another 400 to have it color matched. So in the long run carbon fiber is cheaper
