Vintage Vent-A-Hoos

We bought an old 30"x30" tall x 24" deep old, white Vent-a-Hood from the person who sold my daughter an old, white 30" Viking stove. I have replaced the light kit. The two squirrel cage? motors rotate. now I need a 12" white, duct cover since her ceiling is 9' rather than 8'. This part is close to $400. Is it worth it? Could I have a sheet metal person fabricate an extension and then paint it? This is an attractive hood since it is tall but is there another hood in the $400 range which would work just as well or better. This is her first house and her budget is tight. Thanks for all suggestions.

sheet metal and paint, or box it in with wood and paint.
