WTB: OBXT hood

Hi all,
I am in search of an OBXT hood in "Champagne Gold Opal" color for my 2005 Outback. I'm in SoCal and willing to make a day's round trip in order to buy a hood in decent condition. I would be willing to trade+cash the non-scoop hood from my 3.0R if someone really wants it. Pic of hood in question. Thanks for looking!

Lots of used XT hoods are available online at reclaim yards, priced $250-350 range.

Note that the Champagne Gold Opal is going to be difficult to match for a 14 year old car, especially considering your location in southern CA. This I know from my first Gen 3 Outback; it was this color. You might have to paint it.

johnre, that's a good point, I didn't really consider how the sun exposure would have affected the paint match. I guess I'll have to watch out for that. Do you happen to know for sure whether an XT hood would fit on a 3.0R? I'm assuming that they're the same apart from the scoop. Thanks!
