How to fix my brand new 04's hood?
Owned this car all of 18 hours when some big clump of shit came flyin' outta nowhere from 3 lanes over and landed in the center of the front of my Hood! R4R!

Someone said it'd cost $250 to repair and repaint it, and then I heard a whole new damn Hood is about the same price.

Anyone know for sure what a new Hood runs? The dent the object caused is very small, of which there are four in a row close to each other, and only one of those even broke the clear coat. However, it's right on the leading edge so it's no like I can beat it out from behind... argh!

The damage sounds minimal - even though it sux on a brand new car cry

I would get it fixed... it can be done without any trace and much cheaper than bying a new Hood...

eek I can't believe the irony here. Almost the exact same thing happened to me about 2-3 weeks after getting my '03 celica brand new, last year. A rock flew up, bounced off the Hood and then deflected off my windshield. No damage to the glass, but the Hood still has a very small dent/scuff mark that I have yet to fix.

If you can find one of those dent repair places in your area, they usually aren't that expensive ($75-$150, depending on the extent of the damage).

WTF????
I called Toyota last week to get a new center console(just the plastics). They told me it would cost about $300 and a Hood costs less than a few little plastic parts. angry
What kind of $hit is that?


I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.
