Wow - I love that hood. You are the only person here that I know has it! I hope to get it some day down the road. Any tips/advice? I want to paint mine RJT to match car and then put back the flat black rally stripes.

I'm biased, since I just ordered a Firebreather spoiler. They will be more unique. I called the company that makes them and said they aren't going to be making them much longer due to licensing issues with the company making the movie.

It would look sick on your flat black Camaro too.

I like your hood too. I should have gone with that one because of the theme I'm going for now. I already ordered and installed my Revolution hood though.
