Default Snagged a fiberglass hood from the junkyard!!

I haven't been on the forums in months but I'd figure I would give a little update. My friend was at a junkyard getting some parts for one of his cars and he saw a few PT cruisers there. One of them was a Brandl edition (some local company in St. Cloud, MN) with a few exterior modifications. One of them being a fiberglass hood with functioning hood scoops!! Thought it was too good to be true but I go pull it and it is in pretty good condition, just a few paint chips on the front from rocks and stuff but nothing bad at all. Anyways I got the hood for $90, not sure what company made it but it looks nice!

Wow nice find! I believe that is a Suncoast Creations hood and the price new is almost 10X what you paid at the yard! You are super, super lucky!
