Looks good out of the box,just not really test fitted until you cut your hood and lay it in there.Just kind of worried there could be a gap somewhere on the side between insert and hood.How flexible is it? It has to match curvature of hood back to front.Sorry,not trying to be a downer,just saying,hate to pay $6oo,cut my hood.Then get a poor fit and have to wait for a replacement.

From the photos ACS posted back on page 2 or 3 looks like a 100% perfect fit.

Like they would show them not fitting 100% perfect. Of course I hope and expect they will,but still going to ask questions.Looking forward to these installs.
What color are you guys going with? Black,body color or hydrodipped?

Mine was just dropped off I took it out of the box but didn't unwrap it yet. mainly because this is what I woke up to this morning......

Update:
I couldn't stand it so I went and unwrapped it. It looks great. I can't wait to get it painted and put on the car.
Thanks ACS for the Camaro Now magazine. My wife tried to take it away from me before I could look at it, she's afraid I will get more ideas...

Sounds like you deserve it, after all it is the holiday season.
