    whats up everyone? I never posted on here before but after what happened to me today i have to spread the news! So i am a technician for a toyota dealership. I'm at work today and i decide to go out back for a quick smoke. As i walk out back something in our small scrap pile catches my eye. i walk over and i see its a hood...i look closer and i see its a scooped hood...i look a little closer and i see its a scooped hood that would fit my 05' tacoma. "OH SWEET" it turns out that this hood got slightly damaged in shipment so they were told to scrap it. the only thing wrong with this hood is the two corners that wrap up to the windshield and fenders are slightly curled in and scratched (deeply). i asked the parts manager "is this hood being scrapped, if so can i take it?" And he says "its all yours!!!!" HAPPY DAY FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!

    Pound that shit out baby! Great find! I'm going back to the stealership tommorow so the wifey can test drive a new Highlander, or maybe even that nice black Tacoma sitting on the lot, she ACTUALLY considered it haha, even the FJ! I can't believe her sometimes.

    Anyways, have to take a walk back by their dumpsters :)

    Great for you!!!
    This may be a dumb question but when someone orders a new hood through the dealer, do they come in already painted, ot just primed and ready to go to a body shop?
    I am thinking of getting the Scoop Hood for my 09 Tacoma TRD Off ROad.

    Congrats on the hood. I actually got one last week from LKQ for $155 unpainted. I got my camper shell the same way you got your hood. Came in on a trade on the wrong color truck. Silver on black. Painted it SWB and it's all good.
