I have the same hood and I've had no problems. I love it. No speed issues. It did warp for a few days when it first went on on one side like fiber glass sometimes does, but it did settle. I have heard this isn't uncommon.

Engine/Fuse Cover Project

I never lift my hood during car shows...Reason?

1. My car looks really cool with the hood down and this way it shows the stripes.
2. There was nothing done under the engine that was worth looking at (besides the cold air induction)

So this is what she looked like before.


So the home project began..

This is the stock covers after I washed them in the sink.



It took more than an hour to tape it up the way I wanted it.


I used Krylon white Engine paint (upto 500 degrees)



Now Im good with opening hood when people want to see her.



Its not perfect by any means, but it does look TONS better with hood up now!

It was $600. I just gave them photoshopped versions of what I wanted it to look like and they did it! Make sure you go to someone who has been doing it for years. Since they knew it was going to happen in advance they actually ordered a roll of vinyl just for me so we wouldn't have any color issues with the vinyl.

Wow, great looking v6. It's pics like these that sometimes make me wish i would have gone more "show" then "go". But i'll get there soon. I'm about done with all the "go" for this car.

Did you also put the clear coat over the paint to protect it from the sun? If so how much was that as well?

So your build really amazes me. There's a few things you did that I normally don't like at all, such as the white powder coat on the wheels, but I have to say that this is one of the best looking Camaros I've ever seen. Everything you've done to the car works together to look balanced and, well, amazing. Looking at it stock and then the car now just blows my mind.

AWESOME job!!

The paint was simonized... so I have to wait for another 90 days once it got repainted and they will redo the car for free... I think it was $500.

AWESOME job!!
thank you.. the best compliment I have received on my car is when my friend said it looked CGI (Computer Generated) when driving down the road, like a car that would be in the movie TRON. Today was the first day I actually let someone else drive and I was following along and I have to admit.. this car does look fake as it drives down the road. I LOVE IT!

Good Gaawwwdd! I like!! Well done!!!

It's nice to hear about other Camaro drivers having long commutes...so I don't feel so out of the loop when I see a lot of them sit in the garage most of the time (which would be nice to do).

I drive 65 miles each way to work, daily. Definitely hard to keep it clean but every Friday it'll be the first thing I do, haha.

Again...well done!!

I normally wash mine 2-3 times a week and then get her ready for car shows on the weekends.

Oh MY....... This ride is absolutely SICK. I originally wanted white but it was not offered when I ordered mine.

You have done a great job on this. I also admire you for the daily commute and certainly understand the reason

As you told me earlier that you just came back from the big Sand Box, I certainly appreciate your efforts to keep our country free

Look forward to keeping up with this build even though I am late to the party, GREAT JOB.

John
