My uncle, whom is painting the car sent this to me today. He added the hood himself, basically as a suprise...so....i guess I cant complain. I was originally waiting for the new raised hood pred is making. He still has some buffing to do, and said the pic doesnt give much justice...It looks black most the time untill the sun hits, or when lights hit at night...then shows blue. I don't get to see it, because it'd been in Kentucky for the last month......but the pic helps, i was beginning to wonder. scan quality sucks, but you get the hint.
