Default New hood, new problems

Just purchased a used, ram air style hood from Craigslist.
It's neon green...cool color, but not on my burgundy S10 Blazer.

So before painting, I notice that there is no hood insulator (no prob), and no windshield washer nozzles mounted anywhere.

It appears LMC has a nozzle kit that I can use to fab.

Anyone else run into this?
I will more than likely have to drill the holes before I get it painted it appears...

Pics to come.

Here she is..



... Hanging out in the garage for now.



Needs cleaned up, but $60 bucks is a steal.


I have a buddy who paints for a living... Everything from houses to cars. So I will have it painted up in the next few weeks.

More pics to come.

Not painted yet, but matched my color... Cherry Red Metallic (9088).

I found it on this site for a decent price.
Touch up paint | Touch Up Paint | AutomotiveTouchup

Anyone know of any cheaper sites off hand?
