I make my own cowl hoods its not hard and I can show you how if you can get your money back for that one...Basicly you make two cuts down the length of the hood and a cut in the back leaving the front intact.then pull the strip up and slide a wood form in between then lay the strip back down screwing it to the form and giving it its shape then you just make the sides and weld them in.but you gotta be pretty handy with a welder...
