    Re: Hood

    Love those side markers. Excellent job on those. Car looks great. Love how the side views are painted black instead of grey. Good choice on that. I promise this is the last time ill say it but the stock sts hood would seriously clean this look up. But it's your car so do what you want. Nevertheless, it looks outstanding. Beautiful work.

    I have to agree on the hood, but everything else looks really sharp! I definitely love the side markers, you could probably sell those sidemarkers to lots of people if you wanted to fab up some sets.

    Thank You for the compliment. I'm still not sure on the hood myself. Although I must say It looks much better in person than in pics. I was thinking about Fabbing up a few sets of the markers but man is it a Pain in the A$$!! Lol

    Re: Hood

    I like your hood the car I not a v so it should not have a v hood. And yours is 1 of a kind this way. You need biger brakes with that big of a wheel. Look in to c6 zo6 ones they are not to bad and might fit with out two much trouble.

    Re: Hood

    I didn't want to say anything because I didn't want to seem to critical because this thing really is a beauty. But I always laugh when I see cars with huge rims with tiny brakes. Luckily yours aren't the type of rims where it showcases the rotors very much. Your eyes are more drawn to the wheel design. But still, bigger brakes are now possible, and also would bring the look up.

    Thank you, I feel the same about the hood. That's exactly why I didn't put a V hood on it. It's not a V & I'm not trying to make it look like 1. I do have a stock hood also painted so I can switch at any time. This 1 is starting to grow on me though. Locally I am getting much more positive reaction than negative everywhere I go. As far as the brakes, YES, absolutely need bigger. I am going to convert to the V setup but I will refinish the caliper with the Brembo logo & remove the V logo.

    With a little massaging, yes you can mount them in the courtesy light location in the bottom of the door panel.

    Yes, the V logo or Caddy logo for a courtesy light is a "Shut up and take my money!" deal for me.
