IMHO, I would paint it, and paint the heritage grille to match also.

Not to be an a$$hole, but this clearly isn't the cosmetics/looks section.

I don't care for it much, but if you painted it, it might look better.

I like the bigger cowl and I like that hood from the front and at angles but directly from the side it looks as if the middle of the cowl is higher then the rear. Still debating on this hood for myself
