Fender Bender!

Last week I ran into an SUV in front of me while going about 4 miles per hour. Their tail gate had some red paint on it, but no damage. My hood is now bent, but I'm reluctant to report the damage to my insurer for fear of them raising my rates.

How much does it cost to get a replacement hood for my insight? Is the installation something I can do myself? I'd like to save money if possible. There is no other damage to my car, other than a very small amount of paint scratched on the bumper, which I can touch up.

The hood closes fine, but it doesn't look good.

This is a covering for the existing part? If so, what's the point?

If you could make replacement parts, though, I would consider a replacement hatch. Mine was damaged when I was rear-ended. Although it still works, it was slightly bent, and all the glass broken out. I'd thought of replacing the heavy glass with fibreglass or carbon fiber, with just enough of a rear window to be legal.
