    Love the headliner and hood. The color is awesome since it is clearly the fastest. I like the clean side look but you're really asking for it to be marked up. Within a week of getting my V and parking it on the roof of my workplace I had multiple dings in the mouldings from people opening their doors and not paying attention. I couldn't believe how quick and how many marks I got on them.

    Looks good. (I was rooting for you) I like the fenders. A more aggressive functional look than some of the Euro cars.

    What does the underside of the extreme composites hood look like? Is it a finished look?

    The grill all blacked out looks great

    Do you remember my thread about doing this a few months ago?

    I'm glad to see that it looks so good on his V

    I personally love the fenders, they look like they belong. Nice work. I didn't catch is that hood custom or an aftermaket product?

    The hood is made by Extreme Composites. You can get it with or without the added vents on the sides of the cowl.

    After you attach images, you can use the [img] tags just like any other picture on the 'net to post the images. That way people don't have to click each link and wait for it to load in a separate window.



    They did a nice job on the side vents. It's not my thing, but the way they integrated them into the character line is pretty slick.





    Not feeling the rear view at all. I'm not a big fan of lights being completely blacked out like that, and the black highlights in the bumper just look weird to me.

    the rear bumper has is cutout with black mesh grill behind it. I Had my rear lift up a few months back at 120 and this will make sure there is alot less drag in the ass end. and it helps the custom look.

    I like the hood and wheels. Is it all show and no go? What engine mods have you done?

    The hood and fenders do look good. I was hoping for a diffuser in the rear.

    If you're worried about rear lift at high speeds, you'd probably be better off adding some aerodynamic under-body paneling to the rear portion of the car, rather than relying on those tiny ventilation slits. What happens is the large cavity inside of the rear bumper and under the trunk catches a lot of high velocity air, slowing it down, and thus creating a larger pressure differential between the rear underside of your car and the rear top side. That larger pressure differential results in lift, a-la Bernoulli's principle and all that. What you want to do is figure out a way for the air under your car to move at as high a velocity as possible, and those vents look nowhere big enough to make a significant difference. Your best bet is to not let air get up in there at all by adding a panel that keeps it from getting up in the paneling, and forces it to slide quickly out of the rear of the car.

    This.

    It's best not to guess what is aerodynamic unless you have access to a wind tunnel...
