    Does anyone aftermarket make a hood for my 94 t800H? Does Kenworth even make it ??? Can’t find a new one to buy anywhere.

    I couldn't find anything online either.

    Reason I heard they discontinued the high hood T800 was because the only area that they really sold any decent amount of them was BC. Probably not enough demand in the aftermarket for them.
     
    Mr79W900A Thanks this.

    Lol. That’s where I’m in. Bc! Ha. Ya I need a good fibreglass guy then cause this one is going to ####. Or... I was gonna buy a brand new t800 sloped hood and new rad and cac and swap it and sell the high hood. But it’s been hard to find a fibreglass guy.

    Gotta be someone around thats good with fiberglass.
    Ask around on a corvette Facebook group or
    find out where the insurance companies send the old corvettes to get repaired.

    A few folks have mentioned in the past that the Peterbilt body shop in Kamloops does pretty good work. I've never dealt with them personally though.
