yup unless you peel back the front fold and sand blast it and put the correct primer on it they will be back. got a quote for $600 to redo mine

That'* any hood you want. Only problem is going to be getting it to you. shipping will make it no longer cost effective. If your willing to make the drive, I'll even knock $50 off the price for your old hood.
