Default WTB ASAP: NA Hood

Forgot to put my hood pins in today like a dumbass and promptly destroyed the hood as I got on the freeway. Now the turbo is exposed to the elements and anyone who walks by the car.. and it's raining. Need to buy a new hood asap someone help me out!!!

Just jump up and down on it for awhile and it'll sorta fit in the short term.

Have a slightly damaged hood (SUV backed into it) that is very repairable for free if you want. I'll take pictures this weekend if you PM me your email. Pick up in SF.

So... guy in hayward wants $190 for a red hood... $150 if I get a blue one.
Local dismantler I found has a white one with hinges (I broke my hinges too) for $100...
more than I wanted to pay either way but I'm thinking 100 is about the bottom end of the price range for a hood.. any thoughts?

keep checking craigslist, i sold my mint silver hood off my 90 a while back for 120...

May want to check the norcal portion of the spec miata forums. Since they generally go through hoods a bit faster than us.

Maybe.. except that most spec hoods for sale practically have tire tread marks running across them.. finding one in decent condition that was taken off a spec miata is tough
