How do you like the fender vents? I love the way they look and I've been thinking about getting them for a while now but am a little hesitant about the install

About time you got a real, functional hood for that whip. Words of advice, not sure what air box you're running, but now you can let her breath fresh, cool air, so make sure you tell Eric to throw in the gasket for the CAI box. If you're not using an open box system, start shopping for one. Eric carries one that'll work with the hood BTW. Now, start holding your breath on the hood, they ain't fast but it's worth the wait

What did you decide about wheels & tires?

I like the Xenen scoops, I'm doing something similar, but they'll be functional like the 3dCarbons in the front.

i have the hennessey CAI with an open box on my car don't know how it will fit with the hood and i bought the hood through myus.com so i'll wait for the hood to get here and see how it fits, i remeber you had a problem with the fittment when the strut tower was scratching the hood ,i hope i don't face that same problem as i have the drake strut tower covers ,
i painted my rims for now till i finish my rest of mods and gonna think carefully which ones to get as a grand finally, if you change your mind on yours and wanna sell let me know J , i really like the xenon scoops you can make them functional i've seen some threads where they made them integrated and functional.
thanks for the words of advice my freind really appreciate it .

P, The MPD1 hood fits awesome, I just had an issue with the Pedders Coilover knob, not the strut bar so you should be fine brother! I was thinking about making the Xenen scoops functional as well, so we'll see. I'll hit you up with a PM in a few hours, maybe we can do something with the wheels amigo.....I'm up waaay past my bedtime Keep on keeping on my friend, it's looking sick!

Looking sweet Pierre. I'm not the biggest fan of the stick on xenon scoops, but it doesn't look bad. I just don't think they match the front scoops and it throws it off a tiny bit. They look like stick-on pieces when the rest of your car looks integrated with seamless precision.

The tinted turn signals and painted wheels are great ideas. If you have issues with the Pedders wrenches at the top of the coilovers, just remove them. I had to with my RK Sport hood. The new hood and illuminated door sills are going to take the car up another notch. You're going to leave me behind like Tommy with the mods list. I don't think I'll be able to keep up!

He won't have that problem, he doesn't have coilovers. That hood will fit fine. I actually added a few washers to the back end of my hood when I saw it was below the fender side about 2 mm, did the trick and can leave the Pedders knobs on.
