    Hell yeah man!!! Looks awesome!!! I'm gettin ready to paint mine this w/e (or at least prep it). I just recieved mine friday and installed in bare to post cure the fiberglass (roger recommended this). I'm gonna take it off tonite and start gettin her ready! Did you have any issues with paint or install?

    OMG! Well I didn't paint it but ya my guy had to do alot of prep, blocking, sanding etc. Fitment was a b*tch. Had to remove the hood, dremel out the holes in the hinges, reinstall hood, remove hood, dremel some more, reinstall hood, rinse, repeat. This went on for like 4 hours. Finally got it to line up the way you see it, passenger side rear corner still sticks up a little bit but I'm tired of F'n with it. Didn't fit exactly how Roger says but ohh well, I got it $1,000 cheaper than an OEM hood.

    I am personally not a fan of that hood, however it looks friggen sweet on your car and the fit and finish is great. All the hard work paid off.

    really?? fitment was that bad??. . . mines lined up pretty good right now. took me and dad less than an hour to remove my old one and install the ws9 as it is. . . however this time doesn't include how long it took me to adjust my headlight covers, which was about an hour and half. i guess well see how final fitment goes after i paint the damn thing! So far it seems like its still an excellent quality hood for aftermarket

    Dont get me wrong, I dont hate it it's just not my favorite hood because the side scoops remind me of a mustang hood (94,95 ish). I have seen other hoods I absolutley cant stand this one is not too bad. I guess I just perfer the stock ws-6 hood.

    Really? I had to wrestle with mine for 4 hours. Removing hood, dremeling the hinges to enlarge the holes, reinstall hood, rinse, repeat. PITA! I'm also starting to have some of the seams from the fiberglass come thru the paint.
    Ohh well, the hood was only $500.

    looks sweet, just a slight drop in ride height and lower profile tires and it would look sick......or maybe your tires are fine they look kinda big in the second picture, maybe its the angle and the shade?

    i guess i can see that . . . im pretty sure the heat extractors are replicas of the firehawk's. . . so i just see i combo of a firehawk and ws6 hood.

    That is a much better way to look at it, rather that comparing to a stang I guess.
