    New Duraflex SS Hood

    Finally got my sons hood painted and installed this week. It looks good from about 5-10 feet but when you get close you can see why these hoods are sold in the $250-$300 range (before shipping). He is happy so that's all that really matters. We are gonna try our hand at installing a Manta decal this weekend to see how that might look, if it doesn't work we plan to get it painted on. Anyway, here are a couple quick shots we took with my iPhone. The paint actually matches a lot better than in that first shot, must of been the angle.

    Yup, as long as he's happy

    Now all you have to do is buff out those headlights

    If he's old enough to drive it, he's old enough to polish out the headlights himself

    Duraflex hoods are POSs, it's what I have on mine. It'll take hours and hours of work to get then somewhat straight. I'll be redoing mine this summer because it's still a lil wavy

    His is too a little but it is what it is. If I run across a good deal on a factory SS hood I may grab it but it's good for now.
