Put a notice out to scrap yards. They shouldn't accept stolen property if they know its stolen.

Wow what a random part to steal. Sorry for your loss. Did they take it from your shop or was the buggy on a trailer or something? Crackheads seem to do just about anything to feed their habit.

what a bunch of crap.

Maybe a game camera would be a good idea??

Hate thieves.

Broad daylight, how arrogant. One of a kind hood, how stupid.

That's because you have to have some degree of intelligence for fear.

Surely this was a prank. Really. Why would someone steal a fiberglass hood that won't fit anything else? Any update on this?

if it is a Prank.. not funny... I was hoping it was returned when I cam in this morning.. New hood being made as we speak... The thing that is weird is I do not have people that just hang around the shop... I have never had a problem in 7 years at this location... Just sucks you can not trust anyone... now I have to lock the yard up when ever I leave on a test drive..

It has been windy today. Any chance it was taken by the wind?

That is just plain crap.

All seriousness aside:
They probably just removed the hood so they cold get a solid place to stand while they tried to unbolt the LED light bar and you came back too soon.

yeah but just think of the satisfaction you will get beating the dude's *** when it shows up on the trail or in the marketplace. we are a small community.

Wonder who always needs a new hood, might be painted yellow by now.J/K On the serious side, that sucks someone stole it, it will probably show up somewhere, since it is a one of a kind.

I've been trying for a week to get it to fit on my rig, guess I'll just take it back.
(sorry to hear some tea-bag took it - effin lame.)

Even though it's fiberglass I would check T&D Scrap right around the corner from you and the yard that borders his to the south. Most of the time T&D's gate is closed but if you go there to sell him some scrap I'm sure he will open it up to you. Once you are in keep an eye out for your hood and watch out for the pit bulls that will come out of no where. They are both on the main road west of the place where the military helicopter is as you enter the complex where your shop is located. If any criminal activity is afoot in that complex I can almost gaurantee it's coming from either one of those two yards. There's also another scrap yard to the northeast of T&D that you may want to check. They are a little bit more legit. Notice I said "little".

Moving this thread. I gave it some time in General for exposure, but if it has not been found by now, probably gone for good. I hate thieves.

So today the person who took my hood decided to return it... when I closed up today the hood was leaned up against the building outside the yard gate.... How weird is this... well I have an extra hood now...

Was it painted pink with Barbie stickers on it?

They probably realized that it was useless to them.

Awesome! Glad to hear you got it back but damn that's weird!!! They probably figured out it had zero value since it wouldn't work on anything else in the world...thieves aren't very bright by nature.

glad you got it back. Weird. I wonder if it was some kid who's dad gave them an *** wooping and made them bring it back?

Strange stuff, but glad it was returned.

That is quite bizarre todd. If he found out that it wouldn't fit his junk then why return it? Just ditch it. I like the thought that he maybe felt guilty and that is why he returned it. LOL

Yeah, I'm pretty sure word got around due to your post here and the Hood was returned unscathed because of that. Otherwise the Hood would have made great target practice.

This would mean that the person knows Todd, is a VJC member, and/or knows a VJC member. Otherwise, how would he/she know that word got around about the stolen hood?

62willy
03-15-2012, 10:47 AM
I'm thinking knows a member or knows someone who knows a member. I just don't see anyone stealing it, finding they can't use it (although it looks pretty obvious to me its not gonna fit most things and it would be highly recognizable ), and then risk returning it. Why do that unless someone you know knows the guy it was stolen from?

I'm telling you...I bet money it was taken by someone you know and was originally intended to be a prank. Has to be.

If you get enough takers on your money bet, I'll say it was me as a prank, and we'll split the winnings.

This is what I was thinking... why else would you return it... If a prank?? not funny because it cost me $$

Are you sure you didn't take it off...lean it against the fence...and then went and had lunch with Woody ?

Just sayin....:)

Glad you got it back, you'll need a spare anyways...

It coulda been anyone, Todd posts on more places than the VJC....

Glad you got it back too bad you had to spend time and money to re do it...But hey spares are good.
