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.

Bends are a different story. Makes more sense.
