My dilemma is how to paint the hood, right now it is in black gel coat and i get compliments on it daily. Thing is im not sure if i want to paint it white and do black hood spears or to just paint in black and keep the look it has now. Hood is a 3" harwood cowl hood....what do yall think i should do?

I'd paint it gloss black. Looks good.

I like the look you have now. The only downside is you will then have to maintain said black hood, and unless you have access to quality buffing tools and a constant timeslot to clean it each week, it won't be long before it starts looking rough.

Don't get me wrong, black looks amazing when it's clean. Keeping it clean can be a bitch. Buffing around the lines of the cowl are difficult.
