    I got a call from my dealer today and he told me I can't get a black hood on my ordered Hellcat Challenger. Somehow it got missed when I ordered the car, so I wanted to change it to black. I'm currently in D status. I figure I'll have it wrapped, but wanted to find out if anyone else has heard of this.

    It didn't get missed, your dealer didn't see the option so they didn't check it. I doubt you can change it now as it's a third party who does the hoods and they are as useless as they can get already when it comes to producing them.

    At one point the black hoods were removed from options, when i ordered mine it wasn't an option (January 2015).

    Brampton Builder said they are coming down the line now with the black hoods

    As of recently, Brampton no longer sends out the car to have the hood painted. They do it in house now and doing this greatly increased the amount of black hoods that are now available for build.

    I'm thinking about a second hood with the body color and save my black hood in the garage rafters.

    Its a HUGE pain in the butt to maintain.

    I would think an aftermarket hood wrap for $250-300 would be the better option.
