    New Stripes & Decals

    I smashed my hood and front bumper not too long ago. So when I got them replaced I decided I wanted a little something on my hood, without being too drastic. I also got all new decals, check out the pics.

    Thanks, it took a while, but I eventually found parts online and saved a lot of cash instead of going directly to gm.

    Well, I've only had it on 2 months now, so it's hard to tell. So far so good. it is very touchy when closing the hood, no more slamming it shut. I ordered it from here: http://www.krazykustomzonline.com/98...d-p-31206.html

    The hood itself needed a lot of prep work. I wasn't too happy with all the imperfections and holes it had, but the body shop did a great job and can't even tell.

    So i have the money to buy it but what do you think? Is it worth it? And do all of them come with holes in them?

    Well like i said, im still new to it. Im sure all aftermarket hoods come with some kind of prep work, unless you shell out 1500 for a new hood from fastgmparts.com

    thanks, yours is pretty sweet too. i ripped the stock fog lamps out and put pilot fog lamps in from autozone. $45 for the set, and work better. easy to install too. bulbs are a pain in the ass to change, but other than that no complaints.

    Those give a lot more depth to the hood. Looks good.

    Haha, me neither, they did a good job. The decals are perfect, not too overdone, just enough taste.

    Thanks, I appreciate it. The body shop did an awesome job. But I have full coverage on my insurance, so I wont have to shop around for cheaper parts anymore if anything else happens. That was a pain in the ass.
