PQ applies hood spears. What do you think?

Ok guys, I did it. :yikes: I put the spears on my car. They were really easy to apply and Xmicro did a great job of creating them. I had to cut the tips off a bit but it was really easy. I got them even on both sides by the eyeball so tell me what you think. I'm not sure I'll leave them on though. I'm waiting for the ones for the side and then I'll decide.

A lot of pics I know but seeing it in person is MUCH better than pictures so I tried to get all the angles I could. Not too bad on the matching each side for a non-pro I thought.

Not sure how I feel about the bowties. Maybe if I could get the SSs in orange too, it may look better. I ordered the SS for the windshield but decided not to put them on because I think it would be too much orange and too much vinyl. :iono: The orange ones for the bowties on the wheels in my opinion would look tacky so I left them off as well.

Anyway, what do you think? Leave them on or take them off?

Very nice!!!! I like it alot like it is. IMO the orange on the windsheild would be too much. I love those wheels on the Black car!!!:thumbup:

Bow Ties look great, but the spears gotta go brother. You're car looks hot without them, the spears are a huge distraction. JMHO though

Lucky SOB 10-06-2009 04:04 PM

I think they look great! They go onto the "flat" (non scoop) part of the hood a little much tho.

DDustiNN 10-06-2009 04:06 PM

Awesome! :thumbsup:

It matches the interior and highlights the hood lines very well!

One question, in your last picture, how much is that hair restoration that it requires a mortgage?

Edge.128 10-06-2009 04:12 PM

I like them

I'm kinda leaning that way but not sure yet.

I thought the same thing. Still do a little but he assured me that in person it would look great and he was right. Right now I'm just concerned like Doc said, that it takes away from the naturaly pissed look of the black car.

:laugh: One stop shopping.

GTAHVIT 10-06-2009 04:15 PM

I say leave them.

Legend17 10-06-2009 04:16 PM

they look great but as you move around towards the back it just doesnt have the same look, maybe look into something that highlights the side of ur car of even just the rear "shoulder" lines idk, just my opinion but front looks mean!!!

POWERFREAK 10-06-2009 04:17 PM

me likey...looks great.

Dakota Kid 10-06-2009 04:21 PM

I think it looks great, and enhances the overall look of the car!

That's just the way the spears work. I think I agree, though. I'd rather have thinner spears. I'm thinking about adding them to the list of visual mods on my ABM, but I'm thinking it may be too much.

PQ, I really think I could say both leave them and take them off. I like that they give a bit of an accent to break up the black, but I think if it were me, I'd use different accents. If you don't want any other accents (hockey stick stripes, fender accents, etc.), leave them on. Just my $.02

I agree. That's why I'll wait till I get the side ones on.

He's making me some fo rthe sides that go along here;

I think it looks sweet!

NoUCantDriveIt 10-06-2009 04:29 PM

I Like the spears PQ, I think they do a nice job of bringing out the shape of the hood. My taste would have been a little different for myself, but yours look really good on YOUR car. Good job of it! :)

bolteon593 10-06-2009 04:29 PM

small recommendation... something to balance out the front and back a bit.

It's pretty nice and subtle. Personally though, I think it would all look better if you had the Midnight Silver wheels.

These are nice.

But you are gonna overkill it by adding side ones.

BackinBlackSS/RS 10-06-2009 04:34 PM

That orange bowtie has got to go!

I cannot agree more. I almost did not get them, but boy and I glad that I did.
They are a perfect fit with the black.

Bbrock25 10-06-2009 05:07 PM

I think it looks really good man. The side things might be a bit much for my taste, but I'd have to see it.

Kinda worried about that. Unless I can come up with the right look.

I got em' in the garage. Gonna put them on when I wear down the rubber on my 21s and then swap back when I wear those down.

Maybe something like this? If it's vinyl, try it out; if you don't like it you can peel it off.

:word:

That's why I'm doing it in vinyl for now.







Not too bad. Hmmmmmmmm............
