Hood spears!

I've seen a few pictures of cars with hood spears on them, but I haven't found a thread devoted to them. I am now considering getting hood spears for my CGM 2SS when I get it instead of rally stripes. So, all of you with hood spears, let's see your pics!

Thanks.

I'm thinking of having glossy black spears painted on with an "SS" stencil in them on my CGM 2SS.

I really like the looks of the black spears on the white car. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I think I'll have mine painted on, but I know it will be more expensive.

Do you think that would look good on a CGM? I want something subtle. Where did you have it painted. I have no idea who to take mine to for this and the window tinting. (I'm in central Ohio and I've asked in the Ohio thread.)

Our hood spears and mail slot filler decals came from Auto Trim Design.

Had mine custom painted at the dealers. They did an incredible job. They kind of look like fangs.

Wow, that look really nice. I've put off getting spears because so many of them look "cheap" to me but these painted ones look fantastic! Did you have the dealer paint your bowties as well?

I had a lot more than the spears painted at the same time so I don't know. Sorry. I can't image it would be all that expensive. If I had to guess.....and it's a total guess mind you....maybe $200 - 300? Anybody else able to answer that?

I had a guy tell me $400 to paint them - I told him he needed to take another hit on his pipe. At the time I wasn't even sure I would like them.
