Any Suggestions? 2006 Mustang GT. Need some help on what hood to go with...

I have a '06 GT with alot of engine work done. I noticed that my hood is starting to discolor, and starting to discolor on the top of my hood. So, for obvious reasons I am trying to figure out what kind of hood I should go with. I'm looking for some opinions.

I've seen a retro styled hood taken from the '68. Has the air vents and option for the turn signal lights.

+1. TruFiber has quite a few nice hoods that are well made and don't cost a fortune.

'05 Sonic Blue GT w/ '07 V8 engine, 5-sp, IUP, Beige leather interior, nothing else -
just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.
