    For everyone wanting the scooped hood make sure that you choose a better body shop than I did at the start of this the shop guy was a friend he thought he did a great job I kinda REALLLLY DISAGREE. I think ray charles could see this paint job is crap. goes to a different shop tomorrow hope they do better

    I can't tell if that's the paint job itself or just the dirty lens on the camera.

    Application looks good. Match not so good. I've got hood and fenders to swap on mine and worry a lot about that. Usually they want to blend it in, but that's a difficult job.

    Application is ok there are a few spots where the coverage is light by the window color match is way off imo and the sunnier it is the worse it gets the scoop insert and the fenders is the color the hood should be and the pictues dont show it as bad as it does in person they supposidly did blend in the fenders but it doesnt look as good as I think it should
