    Does anybody have any experience with Advantage Fiber Glass Hoods?

    I presently have a Goodmark Cowl hood that is all beat to hell from hail. When we got in the hail storm, the rest of the vehicle was untouched, but the Goodmark Hood was really beat up because of the thin metal. I am now considering a fiberglass replacement.

    There are several pros and cons for steel vs fiberglass, but at this point I am looking for a reasonably priced fiberglass cowl hood.

    After repairing all the body damage from the last wreck, the hood will be the last body piece that ever gets repaired on the Jimmy. :D

    I think Rfjguitar has one of those. Cheap, if I ever get one of those hoods it will be one of those on price alone.
