you could bondo it like you would any other dents but idk if id trust that.. id be pretty pissed if i closed my hood and a bunch of little quarter sized bondo chips hit my feet.

softball sized hale, holy **** lol, i hope no people got caught out in that that would kill a bunch of senior citizens if it poped them in the head good....but yeah if its really bad get a new hood or either bang them out, other option if its really but is to cut and weld in a new piece, all in all probbly easier and cheaper to just buy a used hood in good condition

hahahahhahah

If its more than 1 small ding, i'd say just pickup a close to or mint hood to put on before paint. Alot better to have a hood with no repaired damage than repaired damage, IMO. You can find someone parting out a car and get a hood for like $50-$60

Now that is some funny ****...No there are like 2 or three dents that are the size of softballs i was trying to compare them to something..they are in the center of the hood so i will try to pound them out if all else fails i will try to find a new hood for cheap..I have had a couple of guys on here that i was going to buy new hoods but shipping is a bitch...

Thanks alot guys
