Woot! Scored a flat hood!
I picked up an original flat hood today for a few hundred dollars. Outside looks great but it’s going to need treatment and cleaning. Nevertheless I’m very happy with this original part looking better than what I got (except for the orange).

Vinnie, that hood looks like you scored a great deal. The cleaning and treatment shouldn't  be a problem for you now, since you paid a visit to our buddy "Chef" Fabrice!  Now that you know how to cook nuts, bolts, and hardware, treating the inside of that hood with the special vinegar sauce should put you on the way to becoming a Master Chef also!  


No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Lol @secluff for now, I'm cooking deck lids. I thought I'd be doing the hood by now but some hidden holes came in between...
Hope to cook it very soon...

Thanks and yeah, lovely orange ;-)
Wow you are a parts hound for sure. Finding lots of good stuff.
Saw a NOS Ford flat hood on ebay yesterday I think it was starting price of $1,500, they are crazy. There was a fastback quarter panel I think it was $3,000, lol.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
