    Hood

    Anyone know where I can buy an STS-V hood for a reasonable price? Salvage with a couple dings would be ok. The car is in the body shop anyway.
    Any input would be much appreciated!!!!

    Well guys, I've been posting all the in-progress pics in the Non-V forum since my car is not a V, but I figured I'd throw a couple pics up now that all the body & paint is finished & see what you guys think.

    The mods are as follows:
    1. Completely smoothed rear bumper
    2. Wide bodied rear 1/4's by 2 inches each side
    to be able to tuck the 315/25/22's
    3. Fabricated a 1-off functional Cowl Ind. hood
    4. All lights except front are Blacked Out.
    5. I seperated the H/L & F/L Assy's to paint the
    chrome housings gray to match the body.
    6. I seperated all 4 corner marker lights &
    installed a 9 LED strip to replace single 194
    bulb
    7. E&G mesh upper & lower grills
    8. Complete repaint of the Dark Tarnished Silver
    9. Painted the grill, hood, wipers/cowl, roof, &
    trunk in Black Diamond
    10. CTS-V coupe muffler.
    11. 22x12 rears, 22x9 fronts with P-Zero's
    12. Lowered 2.5 inches all the way around

    That's all I can think of at the moment but I'll post more with all the appropriate pics as I go. Finishing the interior is next on the list!!

    Let me know what everybody thinks. Positive & negative comments are welcomed as long as they are tactful. Lol, it is my car & I know not everybody agrees with getting this crazy.

    I see the pics. I think it looks cool. Not sure I like the exhaust tips hanging that low. Seems like you need a cut out in the bumper and to raise them.

    Can we see some nighttime pics of the LED headlamps?

    Re: Hood

    Very nice. You already know how I feel about that hood though. I also second carter. When you were talking about doing this I thought there was going to be a cutout in the bumper for the exhaust to sit up in.

    I see it now. The hood seems a little too ... not STS. How did you squeeze those tires in there? Looks mean!!

    Re: Hood

    He had the fenders flared out to accommodate wider tires. Custom work. Very cool.

    I have to take it to the exhaust shop Monday morning so we can raise the muffler & then right back over to the body shop to notch the bumper.

    Luv the colors, I think a v series hood will do you justice, a more substantial bumper will be needed to compliment your exhaust, your rear fenders AWESOME!

    Re: Hood

    more subtle hood and cutout for exhaust ....may be two exhaust tips on each side something like DTS to differentiate from regular STS
