    Need Hood insert

    The brackets appear to have broken and the hood insert is now curling up on the edges. Anyone have one or know where to get one? I checked the isuzupartscenter.com and only the full hood was listed -unless i missed it.
    thanks,
    w

    Search for Bonding Fasteners on the web...you'll find someting. Also over on the group Facebook page look for Dan Danlister and see if he can help. He buy and parts out VXs and usually has most parts that people need. I have found that the OEM fasteners come loose from the insert and rarely break. If this is the case you can use a good JB Weld product or PC-7 to reattach the fastener to the insert and you'll be good to go. I've done this on several of the two VXs that I've owned over the years of enjoying them.

    and also a thread with the fastener part list and another with alternates from sink mounting.
    thanks all.
