If it was painted and ready to go, you stole that hood! A couple years ago I hit a deer with my 99 Escort ZX2. I went to the junk yard and bought a hood, radiator and some other parts. While the hood was the same color, the paint was in poor shape while the paint on the car was in nice shape. I went to the body shop Iíve used since the early 80ís and knew the guy. Just to paint it was going to be $500. He said the cost of paint has gone crazy. There was no body work needed to the hood either, just sand and paint, $500. If it makes any difference it was silver.
I also bought 2 NOS coupe 1/4 panels from him for $500. Black primer 1/4's.
