In So Cali, you can just go directly to VIS. They have Grade A hoods and Grade Double A.

They're the best hoods IMO taking price into consideration. $315 usually, and that's not a hookup price.

I've had my hood for a long time now and it's holdin up fine!

It sounds like you need to adjust the bump stops at the front of your hood. Lower it, and your hood will close.
