The hoods on my Coroso Modelo brake levers are completely disintegrated. I have googled till I'm blue in the face....any ideas if/where there are replacement hoods??

Are you looking for some Modolo 919 hoods? There is a set of black ones on eBay right now, other than that your going to have to get some classic Cane Creek one I think if you can find them to fit (they'll fit but not like a glove), or wait for some others to pop up on eBay from time to time. No one really has a stock of them anymore.
The Modolo hoods are getting harder and harder to find, when you can find them without them already having started to harden and dry-rot. They usually run around 30 to 60 depending on condition and who needs them at the time. My average per pair as been around $35. Regular Cane Creek ones run around 10 to 20.

Which are the Modolo Corso hoods?
I have a set of NOS Modolo levers/hoods that look like this that I'd be willing to sell if you are interested:
By the way, i notice you have both Coroso and Corso and Modolo/Modelo in your OP. You are googling the correct spelling I hope.
