    Actually.. if you can find a reputable shop they can sand down the clear coat, shoot the same color paint over those stripes and lettering and shoot the clear and match it up.. it's in a very good spot to split match too

    It shouldn't cost you much to do it.. hell if you get a nice paint gun, the right sand paper, really good clear and color matched paint you can do it yourself O0

    Hello,

    Your car look awesome, I like the wheels and the hood, but I think it's will be better without any stripes.

    I have to agree, Im not a fan of those BOSS stripe packages, I think it would look way better without them.

    Awesome car! The boss stripes aren't my fav but the color and the hood look awesome. What hood is that? and how much did you pay?

    i painted the tank strapes silver, the hood is a 2.5" cobra r from H.O. Fibertrends it cost about 520 with shipping but it is a very good quality hood, the fit was great

    Are you sure thats the 2.5 in cowl? It looks bigger. I am getting the 3.5 in from them soon.

    Can you get some pics of the gauges from under the hood? I want to do the same thing. Cause that looks sweet.

    yea its 2.5" taller than the stock hood, the hood was solid in the back so i cut out 3/4's of it for air then drilled 3 2inch circles for the gauges, ill get some pics from under the hood for you soon
