Are you going to paint it? If you are leaving it what ever color it is at the junk yard, I say no. If you are going to paint it then YES!

i say get the rs hood and don't paint it. i love cars with rusty hoods

and it would be even cooler if you left holes where the vents/scoops are supposed to go, too.
