I'd highly considered it, but the funds just aren't there. I also didn't learn about the disc swap until a couple weeks after I replaced every piece of the drum brake setup, so it's all been replaced! Haha.

Taking forever, but almost ready for paint! Dent was bigger than I thought. It won't be perfect, but it will be much better.

I got tired of the TPS and IAC screws coming loose and the heads stripping, so for $2.50 at Lowes I picked up some better screws and lock washers. Much better fit!

Underside of the new hood is now refinished! Satin black VHT engine paint, with a light spray of truck bed liner over it for texture.

Hood is finished, and it is beautiful! Pics will come after it's put on with the new fender.

Why not just buy a new hood instead of repairing a used one? New ones only like 50 iirc. Google "npd crash"

New hoods are garbage in comparison to a factory hood... SO thin and cheap metal.

They're yellow projector fog lights that I picked up many, many years ago. I can't get myself to switch away from them, lol.
