Camaro black idea

Thinking about getting the RKSport extractor hood painted matte black, kind of like the Camaro Black concept. Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?

I think it would look cool, I have thought about a flat hood as well.

would look nice. I'll post the pictures here for you since I can attach them instead of uploading them and sending you links in pms.

Yellow is the heat extractor holes. These go to the vents up top near the windshield. They're fully function.


The hood scoop uses the ducting outlined by the green lines. It has two paths. The heavier water that runs along the water is funneled to where the hood latch is, and drains out the hole circled in sky blue, while the air is directed on a top channel of the ducting to where the airbox is, circled in red. Again, fully functional.

If you need any more angles or if the explanation isn't clear, let me know.



As for the flat black. I would recommend it. It REALLY stands out against gloss black in light. The dulled highlight/glare makes a spectacle against the smooth as glass, gloss black. Go for it!

This is correct. I was posting pictures of the RK sport ducting for Spacecowby because I said I would a while back and slacked off for a couple days.
