If he gets a new good there wouldn't be any body work. If they fix the current good there would be body work. Your statement doesn't make any sense.I don't see anything there that PDR shouldn't be able to easily fix 100%. I would absolutely prefer that option over a replacement or repainted hood as everything would stay original.
If you're set on getting a new hood, I would at least ask for a Rubicon hood as an upgrade to offset the downsides of having bodywork on a new vehicle.
