My dealer has their own (rather large) body/collision repair shop. Ford authorized them to repair the hood, not replace. I dropped it off and they assured me they will do the best job possible. I should not be able to tell that a repair was done.
I'm told the repair will be covered for as long as I still have the bumper to bumper warranty.
Edited to add that this dealership is where I purchased the car and have had all service work done. They have always done good work and demonstrated a professional attitude.
2012 Mustang GT Premium, Kona Blue, Charcoal Interior, 3.55 gears.
