Hood - Deformation / Leading Edge
Purchase a used 2014 SRT w/ a clean carfax (for what it's worth). One item I noticed is that the metal support (tape?) along the leading edge of the hood was installed improperly. The hood appears to be OE w/ the Mopar stamp and SRT heat shield. So I'm come to:
A. It's not the original hood even if it's an OE part. The paint is what I would expect from a 2014 and I see no evidence of over spray or discoloration from the rest of the car.
B. It's a factory defect.
I would assume that warranty would take care of it regardless... if I should try to have them take care of it. Unless it's a new hood, I can only see them grinding down the metal/lead tape and repainting. Not sure that's our best course of action.
Side note - it put our newborn to sleep on the way home from the hospital. That rumble works.
