Cool! Thanks! What color combination do you think I should go for? all black, yellow body and black vents or vice versa?

Either all black or body color yellow. But that's what I would do based on your black stripes.

yeah that's what I'm thinking. I'm leaning more on all black but then again I realized that my hood will be 85% black and 15% yellow...so that made me think if yellow body will help out with that. I just can't imagine how it's gonna look on my hood.

I'd paint it yellow (color matched) with the T3 stripes

I have an appointment to take mine in to get the insert and a full cowl stripe professionally painted. Does $250 sound reasonable?

I know you've been around quite a lot on that subject (TL1 insert). But when you see the car live 3D it's not the same as on pictures, really not. The insert was installed at ACS plant and Joe & Kevin, designers and fabricators did'nt think that much on that untill they saw the install.

Like I said I put mine on to see what it would look like with the rally stripes left on and it just didn't look right to me. I am having a full single stripe painted on my hood to match my insert.

okay so is there a benefit to the ZL1 style set up? does it work any better than the set up that ACS provides?
