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.

Ya, carbon coating is a little lame... I mean, just carbonizing for looks...

If you could Fab REPLACEMENT parts, that would be sweet. There could be a mod market for carbon replacement parts. Hood, front air-dam, front fenders, wheel skirts would be pretty easy, but it would be more for looks then wieght savings. :roll:

I am more into a custom carbon lower air damn block for my winter radiator mod. A HD foam the sit flush with the outer dam, coated in Carbon-fiber would be tight!

A Custom double DIN center dash console would aslo be sweet in black Carbon fiber! :twisted:
