Comprehensive insurance and a good PDR place can take care of that.

I have comprehensive coverage, so it shouldn't be that big a deal, but we'll see. Im almost thinking about switching to a fiberglass hood now that I have a reason to replace it. Does anyone know if the fiberglass ram air hoods have any problems when it comes to hail dents?

Yeah our hoods aren't too sturdy being they are aluminum. I opted for a steel Reflexxions hood.

I hear you, I am in the process of having $5600 worth of dents popped out of mine, after only 8600 miles.

Hail Got hit a month ago on the way home by a major hail storm. I was driving through hail which was piled up about 2" deep in the road. Hail was golf ball up to baseball sized.

It's going to take a new hood and tonneau cover as well as popping dents from doors, top, fender, etc. The dents don't pop out of the aluminum hoods very well.

I feel your pain. I got hit last summer with just under a $1000 worth of damage with a $1000 deductible. Good luck.
