Exclamation 90% BUMBLEBEE Hood pics!!! More slant on sides still needed...& the LIST has begun!!

[B]So the time has almost come guys! Will have 100% complete pics done within a WEEK!

I went by the shop the other day and checked it out. Well i ws very happy with how it came out!

EXCEPT

Needs a considerable amount of slope and smoothing on the sides....i'm a perfectionist so i don't let anything pass by

It's coming out GREAT!!! Truly AWESOME WORK!!









See our thread in the commercial vendors section for purchase instructions and to indicate your interest: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42121

So let the list begin!!!

So, no additional cost for painting?

Any plans to make the scoop functional?

Thanks!

Well I would give you my info except that mold looks nothing like the actual bumblebee hood! They missed the mark completly! You are right about the sides needing to slope a lot more! That cowl looks like a box! The bumblebee hood does not have those sharp edges and corners on it at all! It also does not have the line infront of the cowl from the tip either! Doesn't look like you guys really looked at the bumblebee hood when making this mold! I think i will wait to see the finished product before I commit to buy!

Dang... I was so excited too!

I take it back... Now that I have looked at that mold and the pics of the bumblebee hood they r not very ar off! The sides need to be slanted a bit more and the line in front of the cowl removed and it would look a lot closer.... I think maybe once it is finished and painted that it might look ok!

Srry, one more thing... The the top edge off where the slot will be is not a straight line, it is slightly contoured (rounded, angled, etc) to match the shape of the front of the camaro!

We are aware....we're gonna see how it looks compared to the angle of the windshield once we test fit it
