1LE inspired Hood/Hash

I really loved the 1LE hood, so I decided to get it done on my car. I get that some people may bash me or whatever, keep it to yourself. Anyways only problem is I think that the hash is an orange red. I just ordered flat black hash stripes

EDIT: Took off orangish hash stripes and put on carbon fiber hash stripes , pics below

Looks great!!

Did you wrap the hood yourself?

Also, how did cut the notch out in the wrap for the hash marks.

Looks perfect. I kind of wish GM kept the hash marks on the 2013 1LE's.

That really looks nice! I think a matte black hood needs to be on a Camaro painted a darker color. Maybe that's why not many people seem to like the one on the 1LE. I have a IOM "SS"......and I've wondered what a matte orange hood would look like .

stt816.....good job

I did not do the hood wrap myself. I called my local sign shop and they referred me to this guy that does wraps. I just went to his house and he did it there for $150. Did a nice job! I supplied the vinyl which ran me about $80 online..... I'm not sure how he cut it out, I just showed him a picture of the 1LE and he got it done! I was actually doing a matte black hash stripe but the guy cut it too much and it wouldnt fit. He went in his house to find matte black vinyl but he didnt have any. Came out with carbon fiber and i think it looks even better. Glad he cut the matte black too short!

Looks Good & no one should bash you as the 1le was not the originator of this design. Plenty of other cars were posted before 1 single picture of the 1le was shown, We all inspire each other to want to make our cars better and there is no shame in that game
