No I haven't done that part................................. Yet.
I do know a few guys on here had it grind down/filled and painted, looks better that way, IMHO......
Maybe someone that had it done will post the answer to your question, I all ears..........

My cousin did it for me so I can't tell you a cost, but I would suggest finding another bumper cover and having it done while off the car just in case there is a problem. I did this cause I didn't want the down time, also he had to do some filling from the inside so there was enough material there as to not grind through.

Gary, can't wait to see how the hood comes out... I was thinking on the same line, taking the hood to one of these body shops and let them do their wonder on it.... I stopped waiting for the order taking of Norm's hood, will be looking for another alternative. Norm is to busy with other things..... Plus, if you have the original hood modified you can bet it will fit with no problems....

Yea the fitting issue will not be a problem at all. That was one of my concerns with the other options. Also I like the idea of the hood still being metal. I'm sure fiberglass is fine, but I don't like the idea of all that real estate being able to flex and shake. Just don't trust it not to crack down the line somewhere. So all metal for me.

How about incorporating fiber glass onto the metal hood, I'm sure that will also work and would be much easier to fabricate....
How long will it take for you to get your hood done?
