Default Hood???? Door???? body work or replace????

my hood went up on the highway and bent both sides of the hood (left and right)
still closes but is dented.... should i replace it or get the dents takin out???

i was thinkin of adding the a hood scoop but i was wondering is there another gm car that hood would fit on a 97 ssei????

when my car was towed some wise guys decided to cutinto my door right under the handle an steal my indash tv out of my car (so now theres a vertical 5 inch cut right under the handle) should i get it fixed or replace it.

May be cheaper to just replace. As for the hood, there are no scooped hoods avalible. You will have to custom make that.

You may want to try to replace. While you're at it, try to buy them in the coor of your car... May save a little on the paint job.

As for the hood scoop, If it isn't functional, it just ads weight and drag. Better spend that money on something that contributes to performance or comfort. IMO
