Looking for an HD hood for The Beast. My clear coat on the cowl hood I installed and had painted 6 1/2 years ago is apparently at its end of life according to my friend who painted it. Which reeaally makes me mad as fck. He told me that the aftermarket products he can buy aren’t as good as the factory stuff so they don’t last nearly as long. I didn’t even know what to say. He owns a body shop and has done this for 20-30 years so all I could do was listen to him tell me why he won’t repaint it for free. Anyway, the Goodmark cowl hood was never the best product imo. It might have been my fault for not greasing the hinges but one day I went to shut it and it bent slightly near the hinges. I can see where it happened, it’s slightly dented. So I’m thinking it might be time to try the HD hood conversion. Since mines a Yukon, I’ll have to trim the areas around the headlights. So far the nearest used one I can find is 2.5 hrs each way. Argh.
