PostSubject: Key Parts 2-inch Cowl-Induction Hood, Part # 0829-035 - B-Body Wagon   Thu May 17, 2018 1:33 pm

I've seen many over-the-top custom hoods bolted on our wagons and sedans. I've seen fiberglass ones that look good in pics or from a distance, but that are wavy and fit and look terrible up close, and also hoods with huge hood scoops or giant/TALL cowls that actually really cheapen the looks of these classy old cars. I'm a big believer in tasteful mods...no Pep-Boys or JC Whitney mods... I have to say I really REALLY like the look of these new 2-inch steel cowl-induction hoods from KeyParts, # 0829-035. Fit looks great, steel so they bolt up like a factory hood, and they look very stock-ish, especially on an Impala SS.



Found one guy filled in the middle rib on the hood too. That looks REALLY good:


I seriously would like one for my wagon, but I actually really like my big and goofy '96-only Collector's Edition stand-up round hood ornament, and would miss it...and could not bear to drill into a $400 hood to mount it...besides...think that might look goofy on a cowl hood (but didn't Oldsmobile have a cowl hood on a Cutlass with a stand-up ornament at one time...'85 442?....hmmmm...).

Anyway, I really DO like this hood a lot!

Looks better with the rib. A steel cowl hood was on many many people's dream list 15 years ago. Nick did a good looking glass prototype back in the day...

You think correctly. An Ornament on a Cowl hood would look very out of place.

Looks nice. I prefer the SLP style though.

I'd be happy with a stock replacement hood. Anyone know where I can get one?

Any body shop, any parts story, rockauto, etc. They are available aftermarket.

Junkyard then. An aftermarket hood will look stock, if you want the look, but as far as a new original part? Junkyard is pretty much all you have at this point.

You will find an OEM hood in the same place you will find all the other OEM parts for a car that is over 2 decades old.

I do like mine...especially since I have the paint matching now. lol

but really, it made the wagon feel great (I know its in my head) and I don't miss that fiberglass hood honestly.
