Default What would you charge for a flat hood?

Itís orange, needs some rust repair around where the hood hinges bolt in but a solid canvas.

PAYMENT
If purchasing, my PayPal is mjlaperch@gmail.com. Please send as "Goods/Services" so I can print the label directly from PayPal. I typically ship USPS Priority Mail and include that in the fee. If the item is bigger it ships USPS Retail Ground.

^ Funny thing is the guy in that ad says if he sands and primes it the price is going up. So get it while it's rusty.

Not currently in need, but I'd pay $200 for a decent one that's not bent. I think the most I've paid to date for one is $150.

I sold a rust free flat hood for like $150 or maybe $200 I think. Plus the buyer gave me a mint condition coffin hood to replace my dented coffin hood.

Then the buyer no longer wanted the flat hood so he gave it back to me. So i sold it the second time for a case of beer.

Then the second buyer never came to pick it up and the first buyer got it for free again. Then he cut it up and made shelves out of it.

I've paid $150 and $200 for the two that I bought. The second one came with a rusty 242 attached. Both over ten years ago.

Paid $150 for one (rust free, but 4 hours away) and locally got another from Mike Sr. for $100 (early type with chrome trim at front face of hood). The latter has a broken off bolt in the female threads.... otherwise it's straight.

In the SE, these are pretty much hen's teeth. I've had many SE TBers wanting to buy mine..... haven't seen one FS down here in awhile.

Some people don't know a deal, even in euros. Must be the TB mentality.
