Hope im not chiming in out of order since im the new guy here but if this is the model landlord you are talking about this may be a cheap hood option. http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/grd/2023601588.html

Well thank you! By the way my uncle owns a sheet metal fabrication shop with heavy industrial capabilities. Of course cincinnati is pretty far away from most of you guys, but i know he could make landlord reproduction hoods no problem. To be honest he has metal breaks that will handle up to 1/2" plate steel. Im sure it wouldnt be cheap to make specialty hoods but with enough orders it might be possible.

Id be interested in someone fabbing up a seat deck for the round hood unit. The outer fenders are fine but the deck they bolt to cracks really bad.

i have had hoods and seat decks listed on ebay in the past for as low as $5.00 starting bid. the hoods sell once in awhile but the seat pans dont sell too good so i quit listing them .

I personally am hesitant to buy a used seat pan because of the age/fatigue issue being similar to what is already owned. A new one on the other hand would be jumped on faster than pirranahs on meat:D
