'80 hood

I never would have believed how hard it is to find a hood for an '80
Mustang. My son crumpled his and finding a good replacement has been a
pain in the arse. Any ideas where a good replacement might be found?

You should start with your local junkyards. A hood from any Mustang
79-82 should fit. Their inventories tend to rotate on a regular basis,
so maybe ask the counter guy to give you a call if one comes in.

There might be an aftermarket hood available, but I wouldn't know any
specifics, other than to check the usual Mustang shops online.

Have you thought about having a body shop beat the original back into shape?

Re: '80 hood

I've got one. If you want it $50 + shipping. Sound good?
I'm in Corpus Christi, Tx 78411 if you want to figure out shipping.

Ditto. These suckers are some of teh most plentiful in junkyards and
*usually* are not badly rusted (like doors).

Oh, try posting here with a subject line of 'PING MUSTANGGUY' and ask
Tim if he has any hoods.
