    I think I may have found a scooped hood to swap for my regular hood, and I'm just curious if anyone else has done it and what level of technical expertise might be needed?
    The guy I'm swapping with is calling the dealerships in the area to get price quotes on swapping them, but I already know they're going to be way overpriced. If it's something that a couple guys could do one afternoon, and would have no problem with I'd like to pursue that route, however, if there is any chance that something might get screwed up, then I'll probably just have to let the dealership do it.

    I've searched here and TN for a write up or photos of a hood swap but can't find anything other than people looking for other hoods to swap with, so any information would be helpful.

    Thanks.
