Talking Some what of a new look... (Pics Inside)

Well some of the changes I have done in the last couple of months are a CF hood and some eyelids. Yeah it’s not much but it’s "some what" of a new look. I know I might get "flamed" for the hood but I like it and it's different. These are pictures of my car I found off the internet. These were taken this last Sunday (08/20/06) at the Import Experience Car Show in Texas. And now all comments are welcomed! Good and Bad ones! Tell me what you think?

Edit: Yes my hood is popped open. Trust me its a perfect OEM fit.

Can I get a pic of the hood closed? I want to see how it fits.

Give me the specifics cause I am looking to get one too.

Does it come predrilled for the washer nozzles?

Do you use your stock hood latches and mounts?

Cost?

Where did you purchase it?

BTW, you should get carbon fiber eyelids to match.

I think it's perfect because all your stuff is really clean, and this is just a bit more extreme than the rest......making it believable...it all looks like it belongs, nice work

They are 18” Motegi FF7’s glossy black w/polished lip.

Yeah I was taking a chance buying the hood… I really didn’t know if I liked it but as usual I wanted to be different but CLEAN. It has grown on me.

1. Yes pics of the hood closed will be coming soon. But I a sure you that Kaminari products fit great.

2. It does not come with predrilled holes for the nozzles. My car is always clean so took out the whole windshield washing system… as you can see in the front bumper.

3. Goes on as easy as Honda put on your OEM hood.

4. Cost is a lot different question. The guy that sold it to me said it was a “baller status” hood and checked the prices on it and it was about $800 – $1000 dollars shipped. I bought it from him (member EM2typeflex awesome guy!) used for $600 shipped.

Yeah I like the CF eyelids but the weave goes the other way and there are different shades of CF and didn’t want to go through that. But I cant turn back because I J.B. Welded the eyelids on the headlight. lol

thnx
It was a gift from a family member. Sorry. But I know she got it off ebay.

I really do thank everyone that has commented! Keep them coming!

I like it. The hood goes with the flow of your kit so it looks great on there. Too extreme for me but it looks great. Very well done!

Remember I didn’t take these pics. These are pics I found on the website from the car show I entered last Sunday. So when I was getting my car ready (cleaning it) for the show he/she caught me with the hood poped. The first couple of pics were taken before the show started.

Eyelids I got them because not too many people have them. Plus I wanted more of an aggressive look too. Hey thanks for you opinion!

Halo projectors… I’m not a big fan of them. If I did get projectors it would have to be a retro fit into the OEM housing… like member “vietstylez” for example.

Enough said. Thanks!

Yeah got to love the black on black cars! Even tho it’s played out (like everyone’s says) might be a change up in the near future. Dunno yet.

Again thanks for all the comments! Keep them coming... Maybe some new ideas?

Hey simplicated what’s up! Yeah I am still stuck in between the two spoilers. Like you said that might be the best way to go..."just leave them off". I think what is hard about the spoilers if because if I get either or I probably will make it permanent.

Tsunami = Drilling holes in to the trunk
Wings West Lip Spoiler = Extremely strong glue/bond will be harsh on paint if taken off.

So yeah I am stuck. Well hey thanks for the complements!
