Does anyone know where I can find this hood cheaper?

This is the only style cowl hood I like but it costs a little too much IMO. Has anyone seen this same style anywhere else for a more reasonable price?

COWL HOOD

what about this one....this one will probably be better because it is a steel hood....those fiberglass hoods crack easy....

other than that one you posted and the one i posted, there is no other "cowl" hood.....

there is this one that i want badly but only if it were steel......and wasnt $700....

^ ah thanks for lettin me know! I wasn't sure if the fiberglass would hold up, especially in the winters

I have seen that first hood you sent and I kinda like it, I just liked the smooth looks of the other one but if it's not steel I don't think I'm gonna fuss with it

Not only does fiberglass crack easily, but most of the time they don't even fit right to begin with!

Cervini is the same as a factory hood. You wont find that hood cheaper because that person selling that is Cervini. They make all the fiber glass parts for Saleen and Roush. like the infamous Saleen "whale tail". I just painted about 4 cervini parts for a mustang I'm working on and it was very good quality. They are a body shop in NJ and know whats up. Almost every mustang in the last decade has a fiberglass hood and they last OK.

Edit: what about the entire beds on the full size step sides Fords? they are all fiberglass too.

nothing is 100% fiberglass. It's a composite of fiberglass and resin. They are fiberglass just like that hood he showed.
