Dent repair...My way

So the truck I bought had a tree fall on it and I don't have the cash right now for a new or cowl hood. So for $70 on eBay I bough this cowl hood scoop again(on my Bronco also) and a bug shield, still partial to these things haha. Soooo sand, measure, paint, measure, measure, drill cry/die a little, silicone and rivet. I think it accomplishes what I wanted and looks better. going to get rivet/screw style fender flares later so the cowl scoop will match.

Looks good from what I see. Got any closer ones of how noticeable the rivets are? Bondo over the rivets down to original hood and paint to match? Just an idea lol.

Actually looks good, did you cut under it to make it functional? It's not the rivets but the stick on ones that are dumb looking

Thanks guys no I didn't cut under it yet. As with my other truck I did it afterwards. Ran out of time that night really. But I agree that the typical stick on ones from Lund are not my style either, at least this is full length. I don't have a pic of the rivets but I like the look even though the hood is 5'6" tall and kinda hard to see

They are always crooked, and look extremely cheap, and the smaller ones are hidious

Sounds like you need to lean to install them right.

Or even better yet, just leave stick or rivet on stuff for the ricer crowd
