Like I said I put mine on to see what it would look like with the rally stripes left on and it just didn't look right to me. I am having a full single stripe painted on my hood to match my insert.

I mean the under hood piece.

There's this one...



And a ZL1 style piece. Is there a benefit to one over the other?

I guess it depends if you need more clearance for your particular setup.

That's fine, I like it like this but I have a couple more ideas before I am done with it.

TL1 water deflector

Here's a few pics of the water deflector. Looks very good. Did my first wash yesterday and not a single drop got to he engine. Also had my first show and a lot of people likes the idea keeping the OEM stripes looks and the TL1 blending into it.

It should work just fine. Just protect the wrap while cutting. Otherwise the hoods are the same.
