    Are their hoods any good? Any other options if they aren't?

    I remember the last time I was thinking of restoring my Maverick (10 years ago...) all they had were crappy fiberglass ones. I have little hope finding a non-rusted-out junkyard hood for my Grabber and noticed they are selling steel hoods these days.

    Curious about their other body parts as well I guess. I've got a bent up rear valence as well.

    Dynacorn reproduction hood yes very good. But I cannot recommend getting it from Auto Krafters. Got mine from Melvins Classic Ford Parts.

    Alright cool! There might be one in my future. Looks like their prices are the same on the things I just looked at.

    Turns out Melvin's is about 45 minutes down the road from me. Do you know if they do local pickup? I noticed the site says they're only open one day a month though...so probably not.
