Hehe, yeah sure, pics are below. I had a good reason for mounting it... I pulled a mad scientist and cut an 8" hole in the hood. It does a good job of ventilating the engine bay and eliminated hood lift at speed. The car also cools off faster. I did this because I was going to buy an aftermarket hood anyway, and I actually did. However the CF one I bought didnt hold up in the crazy TX heat/sun combined with the engine bay heat, and turned yellow within 3 months. This is especially lame when you consider I drive my car once a week and its garage kept. Anyhow, I put the old hood back and I kinda like it anyway. Eventually I'm going to buy the CDC Shaker and the Foose hood they sell especially for it, but that will be a while.

These are old pics from before the tint and new wheels/tires, but the car looks the same otherwise. The hood has a flat black stripe up the middle as well as flat black vinyl on top of the scoop, to match the flat black stripes on the sides and rear. The inspiration for the reverse scoop was definitely old school ala a certain '77 Trans am.
