If you go with OEM be sure and look it over good. They are bad to rust out from the inside in the reinforcement. In the rear, near the hinges and also up front in the middle and along the front edge.
I have several OEM I am in North Carolina. If you are near one of the suppliers like NPD drive to get it or expect damage in shipment. If you get new repo you do have to arch the hood to fit your fenders then weld the hem and seal it up. Also remove the black e-coat on the outside usually rust under it.

 

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Thank you for tip! That’s good to know especially if when buying online. What do you mean by arch the hood to fit the fenders?  Sounds intense but I may have to go that route

The hoods will have too much arch. You have to physically bend them to fit the fenders. That way on any car mustang or camaro. They do not weld the hem so you can change it.
