Re: My new hood...Need some opinions

I don't like it. The slope and sculped scoop in the middle of the hood doesn't fit in with the square boxy Chevy hood in my opinion. I have seen aftermarket Camaro hoods and they have that same style scoop in the middle. I think it looks good on the camaros because they are already slippery machines, but in my opinion I wouldn't think that would look good on a truck.

Re: My new hood...Need some opinions

Are you on crack? Thats crazy talk man! What are you building the bat mobile ? Just trying to rile ya up. Where are you getting it from? US body source has them to I Think. Not into appearence items obviously so I cant make a opinion. Seems like it would be expensive to buy and then paint. Remember trucks fade so the hood might not match. Good luck.

Re: My new hood...Need some opinions

I used to want to get a cowl induction hood, or something similar. Then I realized that my engine bay gets enough water, mud, and crap splashed up into it from below, there's no need to add a big hole above it to let the crap fall down in from.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] So I am sticking with my stock hood.

I'd have to agree with everybody else, stick with the regular cowl hood or the stock hood. Just my .02. The paint matching issue would be my main concern.

Re: My new hood...Need some opinions

Hey dood, don't know if you saw it but here's a pic of it installed. (not my truck)http://www.prestigious1.com/images/Cowlhoods/CH4146882b.jpg I think it looks pretty cool.

I've been looking at hoods too and kinda' like this one. http://www.prestigious1.com/images/Cowlhoods/CH4113942b.jpg

I'd like the standard cowl-hood best if they made a really low-profile one, so it would look ok on my stock-ish truck.

See ya' Brian.
