Default So what should I do next?

I'll be darned if I can figure out how to do a poll, or even if I can. So give opinions.

Do I order another hood from ImportZX even though they screwed me on shipping?



Or do I change styles to this one?



Or do I drop the hood for now and do this?



All of these will be about the same price, around $500 finished. The cowls will need a new hood, body work to mold it in, and paint. The hinges will need to be welded in place. The welding is no problem. Painting might be. What'* your opinions?

I think lambo doors are cool, but not on a Bonneville. I vote for the first hood. It matches your car much better than a cowl.

The first hood I got was damaged, so I sent it back. After 2 weeks with no updates I said I may have to ask for a full refund if I can't get an answer. The refunded me, but left out $40. I filed a dispute with PayPal but still no answer. They have till next week to respond then I go to a full dispute. I can't find that kind of hood any place else. I've been looking. The price is good, but now I'm a little leary.
