I have a dent in my bonnet which has been priced at about 600 to be knocked out, primed and painted and all the s**t involved with getting the metalic paint to match/blend in, whatever it is. was wondering about instead of getting that dent fixed, to just get a ba bonnet with the bulge. anybody know who can do that? is it a pain in the a***? and a rough price maybe? thanks :)

Good Luck finding a XR8/GT buldge, Usualy rare, New from ford is over $1600-$1800 last time i rang up, I kno that the spoiler shops and that now have replicas made from steel for about $1000 for a complete BA/BF Bonnet, All i can say is dont get a fiber glass one, might be cheap but every single one ive seen cracks away from the bonnet. My work has fitted a few BA/BF fiberglass buldges for PPG rep cars and each of them have cracked.

As for getting a steel buldge cut the buldge out and weld her onto your existing bonnet :)

Hope this helps mate :)
