Thanks I love the new look.
I used a heat gun to warm them just enough so they would peel off. Then I cleaned what glue residue was left with some citrus type bug and tar remover...
I still need to remove my trunk stripes.

No pictures under the hood, I will try to get some tomorrow, weather permitting of course.

Looks great. What did you use to cut the hood?

A jigsaw with a metal cutting blade. That aluminum cut like butter...

Not including gathering tools and putting them up and the time I spent looking for the lost bolt 3 1/2 hours by myself.

Thanks, I did it myself. I used Duplicolor black bumper coating. I found over the years that it is easy to use and lasts for years. If I need to touch it up, it blends easy too. Unconventional but it works for me.

I think it's more of a matte finish. There is no shine to it at all. I like it that way. Some people may say that paint is garbage and stay away from it but I have used it many times for painting things on cars and never had any issues with it. I have painted stripes , grills accessories and yeah even a couple bumpers. The back panel between the taillights on the Camaro I also used it on.

How hard was it to cut the hole in the hood and what did you use to do it?

Wasn't hard at all, just follow the template, I used a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade.
Aluminum is easy to cut. It was much easier than when I installed a Sunroof in my 76 Chevette.

Since they had only been on for 6 months there was no problem with the paint matching. Even when I had my 2010 yellow Camaro I took off the factory stripes after 2 years and the paint still matched.
