I used my factory hood as my test hood as it had rock chips on it and a scratch so I figured test out on this hood before cutting a new black hood

The 1st hood (test hood) all went well so if someone in Orlando wants to do this mod I have a hood that is cut and ready to go you just need to have it painted to match your factory color.

Now on to the new hood see the pics below for the complete start to finish.

I have the optional ZL1 water defector on in the last 2 photos as you can see. I am not sure if I will have any clearance issues I do not believe so but I will test it out this week.

The very last photo is my test hood that is available to anyone in Florida that wants to come pick it up it's all set for this insert it just needs to be painted cost is $100.

Next up is to get the insert painted this week and take her out for her 1st car show next weekend.
I've been waiting for you to install yours so I can judge how its gonna look on a black camaro. Can't wait to see it installed all the way on your car. It will give me a good idea what mine will look like! Good job on the install. Looks like a real clean job!

Wednesday or Thursday at the latest insert is being painted "satin black" I decided not to go AGM this time since I am changing out my ZL1 wheels to black ZL1 wheels (OEM or Replica)

Nice, that's how I will do mine (satin black) if I go through with this. Wish I was closer to you, I would buy your "test" hood from you.

Once you get past the first cut its easy... With the template it is really hard to screw it up.

Exactly it's all about the prep and DO NOT rush yourself.

Piece of cake on the rest.
