Default Price question

I have an 02 Cruiser I bought used (the second one I've had). There's a little ding on the outside of the hood near the prop. The Buick port holes that are seen on Ebay would be ideal to hide the ding. But the things are so darn expensive, I think.

How come? Anybody have any insight?

Dunno 'bout ebay, but they do seem pricey :

Anything made in small quantities will have a high cost per piece. A single hand made, custom porthole would really have a high price. As production goes up, cost comes down. These portholes are still rather unique so maybe that's why they cost so much??

I have an idea for you to kick around. If you could find an emblem that you liked that would cover the ding, that could be an inexpensive way out. Perhaps take the graphics off of the doors if things look too busy.[:I]
