Why waste time trying to repair a damaged Front Volkswagen Hood when it is faster and easier to replace it?

Mid America Motorworks has a special on front hoods for 73-79 Super Beetles (#361-060) for SuperBeetles.com forum members. These hoods normally go for $299.99 but they are willing to let them go for $249.99 plus shipping. I have been assured that they are of the highest quality with a 500 hour salt bath test against rust.

It's not the metal that survives the salt test. its the paint. These replacement parts are way flimsier than the stock stuff. And lets face it the bug hoods are dented easy enough already.

IMO if your going aftermarket anyway get a Glass hood. Stronger and it will never rust. also insulates noise and heat better.

When I replaced the hood on my Super Beetle I got a brand new one from a Volkswagen dealer here in Canada.

It was about $600.00

Be advised that I just had some body work done and they ordered a new 73 Super hood $300 from Amercan Motorwoks and it was not right.  It was missing the flat area just below the where the handle fits.  It was a 73 Super hood but the original design was changed.
