Trying to find a good Cowl Hood

Anyone know of any good websites were I can find Cowl Hoods? American Muscle has one, but it doesn't look all that great in my opinion. Kaenen Mustang 3in Cowl Hood - Unpainted (05-09) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping! This is the one on AM. I'm looking for the more original looking Cowl Hood. If anyone has pic's of their Cowl, that would be greatly appreciated.

MY CD hood has a 2+ inch cowl, which is just about perfect in my opinion.

go with REAL pins. The CAI and tune takes 30 min to install and just a click to buy

The hood you might want to paint yourself considering your car is a few years old and might have faded slightly so the prepainted parts might not mesh

I decided i'm going to go with the Cervinis Cowl Hood. As far as hood pins everyone is telling me to go with the real ones. So i'll wait until I have my cowl hood to buy them. As far as painting it myself, what does that involve? And for the CAI, that is still probably the most confusing thing to me, but there are millions of threads about them so no need to explain that CAI stuff again lol.
