      I have a 2002 Limited that suffered extensive hail damage in May. Due to the volume of hail-damage repairs in my area and the extent of damage to my particular vehicle, I cannot get it into the body shop until February, 2012.

      I'm not in all that much of a hurry, but if I could just get a replacement hood in the meantime, I could replace it myself and that would take care of a large portion of the damage that's easily visible from a normal vantage point.

      Suggestions, please, on whether I can get a hood already painted in my color - and if so, recommendations as to where?

      A junkyards your best bet...I looked and looked for one for my pearl white limited, and could not find one. A local cheap shop wanted 400$ + to paint a hood. I had to make a 2 hour drive but found one and only paid 50 bucks for it.

      try www.car-part.com and run a quick your-choice-of-radius search, it will pull up hoods, list colors, and where they are/distances for those junkyards...
