Q&A: How much would it cost to replace the hood on this Honda Accord?

Question by jjjwrussell: How much would it cost to replace the hood on this Honda Accord?
I’m in the market for a car and I’d like it to be a Honda. I found this one on AutoTrader and depending on how much it would cost to replace the damage to the front end I may end up purchasing it. The link is below:

I do autobody repair as a career.A new aftermarket made in Taiwan part will cost around $ 125,depending on where you get it from..The paint work is another story,a nice job should run about $ 250 for the hood alone.Check out Car-Part.com,you might find one the same color Go for it.

    I’d go to a U-pull it junkyard, they charge about $ 35 – $ 50 for a hood.
    You may have to have it painted, but it shouldn’t be hard to find that color.
    And the side piece should be easy to get too.
