    Show Me Your Hood Birds

    Hi all! I own a Pewter Metallic 2002 Formula. Now that I've garaged her and she's no longer my daily driver and won't bake under the hot FL sun I'm revisiting the idea of a hood bird. I expect i'd use the one from Phoenix Graphix, I have a local custom shop that can apply it. As always though I just have trouble picturing the final product, can any of you there with the 3rd Gen hood bird on your 4th Gen (non WS6) hoods post pics of yours if you've done one of these?

    Smart move. I installed mine all by my lonesome and what a stupid idea that was. Somehow it turned out good. But I will never attempt that again.
