Are there any good reliable fiberglass hood manufacturers?

I don't see any hood pins on either of your cars. Did you find an alternative reinforcement method or are you just running without?

How realistic is it to sell a used hood for a decent price?

I've been wanting the VIS Terminator hood for a long time, but just never seem to have the $1200+ to spend on it. I assumed my old hood wouldn't be worth much after taking it off, but I looked today...

Question What color to paint the scoop

I've been learning to paint so I could fix some damage to my ground effects. My first attempt, on my engine cover and related items, went okayish:
