1976 450SL

Just got my '76 project car home this weekend. It is a straight and almost rustfree car, but the hood is damaged. (Sorry no pix yet, will try in a day or two)

Does anyone know if the hood is reparable, or if should find a new/used one? I know it is tough to tell without seeing it, but the damage is minimal. My question is more along the lines of - Is the hood of the 450SL a weak point? And if it's been damaged, will it likely bend again in the same spot?

The previous owner thought this was fairly common due to the length of the hood.. Any ideas are certainly appreciated. Please include any sources for hoods if you have experience!
