Auto Metal Direct (AMD) Malibu, El Camino, Caballero hoods are designed to be a direct bolt-on replacement to your vehicles stock hood. All applications utilize your vehicles stock hinges and latch assembly. Each hood features a fully finished, factory style underside. Unlike fiberglass hoods, AMD steel hoods will not flex or warp over time. Regardless of where you are located, AMD steel hoods will stay looking great for years to come! 

AMD steel hoods arrive in a black electro coat finish. This is not a primer. This is a sealer put on the steel to protect against rust. All hoods will require normal prep work (test fit, sand, prime) before paint can be applied. We strongly recommend having the hood painted and installed by a qualified auto body technician. 

This item, due to its size and weight, is much more susceptible to shipping damage. AMD ships this item in an additional custom foam-padded box. Boxing fees are in addition to standard shipping.

Our products range in size from small to large and require different shipping methods. We use FedEx to ship small to medium size parts. Large and/or heavy products will be shipped via truck freight. The trucking company used could vary. Expedited shipping options are available for additional charges - ask your salesperson for details. All shipping charges should be quoted at time of order although there may be times when we have to call you back to give you a price.

Simple Retail Shipping Charges (Internet Orders Only)

Retail customers who place their orders on our website with shipping addresses anywhere in the contiguous U.S. will have two simple shipping charges for their entire order (not per piece) depending on items in their cart:

Truck Freight:  Cost varies by region  -  If there is at least one or more item(s) in the cart that require(s) shipment via truck freight, the entire order will ship for a flat fee based on the delivery region.  Truck freight deliveries require that a person be available to inspect and sign for the delivery. 


Shipping Zones

Ground Shipping:  $12.95 + applicable oversize fees  -  If there are no items in the cart that require shipment via truck freight, the entire order will ship for $12.95 + applicable oversize fees.  **Depending upon the quantity of items on your order and/or the order's overall weight, we may choose to send the entire order via truck freight.  You will only be charged the $12.95 ground rate but you will still be responsible for making sure a person will be available at the delivery address to inspect and sign for the delivery.  You will be notified via email or telephone call if this applies to your order.**

Important Truck Freight Shipping Information 

Certain products must be delivered via truck freight due to size. Whether the item will be installed immediately or not, you MUST inspect the box for suspected damage. If there is reason to believe the product may be damaged based on the condition of the box you will need to open the box and inspect the product(s) and note the damage on the delivery ticket before the driver leaves. Failure to follow this procedure will result in loss of claim - see the Damages section for further details.

Damages and Shortages

Damages and shortages must be reported within 24 hours of receipt of merchandise. Your shipment is insured by the trucking company that makes the delivery – NOT by Auto Metal Direct. If you find your item(s) damaged, you MUST have the driver note the damage on the delivery receipt. If the damage is severe, please refuse delivery and call our office immediately - we will take care of the claim and send you a replacement. If you find the item damaged after you have signed and accepted the item and the damage was not noted on the delivery receipt, Auto Metal Direct will not be able to help you with a claim. By signing the delivery receipt, you are certifying that you have received your item(s) in good condition. If you ship to someone other than yourself, you must let them know to inspect the item(s) for damage. If they sign the delivery receipt certifying that the item was in good condition when it arrived and you find any damage after the fact, Auto Metal Direct will not be able to help you with a claim.

Important Glass Shipping Information 

Due to the fragile nature of glass, in order to assure that you receive your product in tact, we have gone the extra mile in packaging. The following charges will be added to glass orders to cover the cost of the protective packaging and will be added to the actual shipping fee.

Windshield/Back Glass..........Add $35.00
Complete Glass Kit................Add $60.00

Most glass orders must be shipped truck freight due to size and weight restrictions. Please call us if you have any questions about shipping before placing your order.

Important International Shipping Information

Parts Guarantee

The sheet metal you receive may have scratches, dings, small dents and other minor imperfections, which are considered normal sheet metal characteristics due to the nature of the product. AMD does not consider these minor imperfections as damaged. These items will be easily corrected during the filling, priming and sanding phase of your sheet metal installation. All sheet metal panels will require some sort of manipulation during installation. Test fit all parts before sanding, priming, or painting them.

The credit or refund amount will not exceed the defective parts original purchase price.
