Arles blue NAS hood

Every six months - same ask.. Anyone have a nice unscratched Arles hood? I grow more and more weary of mine with the huge pentagram carved into the center. Please. Someone has one in their hoard. I know it.

I'm sure I've asked this before but short of someone giving you a hood for free how is replacing yours anymore economical than just re painting yours?

You have, and it's a good point. The rest of the truck has this great patina and I'd like to get one with something comparable.. This current hood is bent in two places and has 5-6 ugly gouges. Unsure if it can be revived.

If I don't find something by, say, December, I'll likely get a used replacement w/higher quality and go the painting route.

I'm not Tyler (he used to live about 50 yards from my house, though), and yeah, I'm interested.. When's the next happy hour? Thanks Gustavo

Bends are a different story. Makes more sense.
