New Hood

So now with the LS7 in there, I was able to ditch the 2" cowl and put on a proper SS hood (which I always wanted). Powder coated the louvers satin black, cut out some nice stainless perforated steel vents and had them painted in the matching pin stripe color but satin finish ... in person it looks killer

Thumbs up Re: New Hood

Looks good Steve. I like the color combo you did. I swapped in a SS hood with a buddy who really wanted my cowl one a few years ago. After my first EFI (LT1) swap in 2001 I didn't need a cowl hood for carb clearance. I have the Eddie Motor Sports billet SS inserts on my hood, they are very nice pieces.

Re: New Hood

Thanks Chris, ya I seriously considered those but since I was powder coating them it would have been a waste of beautiful billet !!

Its very hard to capture the true color of this car, but my 14 year old nephew came over last night with his nice SLR and captured this shot ...
