Hood : The front compartment cover or bonnet on cars, trucks, vans and suvs are called the hood. The hood stands out when looking at the front of the vehicle. Hoods range in all shapes and sizes usually covering the engine of a vehicle but can also be a storage area cover on mid or rear engine vehicles.
A hood typically does not have mechanical problems, but can get structurally weakened with rust, poor assembly workmanship or design flaws. Hoods typically are damaged in an auto collision or other types of auto accidents. Some hood damage may be repairable while other hood damage will require the entire hood to be replaced.
Hoods are mostly made of steel however plastic, fiberglass, carbon fiber and aluminum hoods are all used to make hoods. Most hoods require paint work to fit them to a vehicle when replaced.
