That may actually not be a bad idea. You might be able to have them remove the hood, and work on it while you still use it for transportation. That's what I did when I dented my hood trying to push a boat (yes I said boat) off of a trail back in the woods (post hurricane Ivan). Damn boat didn't budge, and the top front of my hood got dinged in two places. (it was a 22 foot power boat all beat to crap). Anyway, I took off the hood at the body shop, and drove it for 4 days while they worked on it.
P.S. Went back to that boat with a tow strap, and drug that thing out of the way. HOOAHH!
