GROM ipod interface.
    I honestly don't care what you guys think about the look, as it factors into MY decision to GO/NO GO with this. In the end I'm gonna make up my mind independent of the poll results. Heck, I already have my mind made up. However, I am very anxious to know what the forum thinks about the look of it...just for giggles and grins.

    So a simple "thumbs up/thumbs down poll" on the asthetics of the "Tbird Reverse Skunk" (my term) Hood Mod.

    This is a tempo test using Plasti-Dip. It will come off very easily. I got this idea from a Youtube vid showing how easy this stuff peels off paint. So I figured I could spend a few bucks and see if I like it before I spend bigger bucks to try a more perm. solution.

    I don't think it would look good without your grille the way you have it.. on my truck it wouldn't look good but on yours it looks good...i think it ties in with your front end

    I don't hate it, and I clicked into the thread expecting that I would.

    With the blacked out rims, black grill, black sliders, BHLM, black light bar - smoked windows on the shell - it all goes together as a theme.
