Not your fault though.
True, it would have been easier, but not cheaper. Instead of replacing the old hood with the new, I'd have to visit the shop twice, get the old one off and stock on, and then again to put the new one on and take the stock off. Depending on the labor rate and how good the place is, that's an extra hundred or so bucks at least. There's no winning
